Steadfast Toward the Mission

God will give us insight
To how to play our part
Yielding for His glory
With all our heart.

Along the way,
We may face trials
But are also blessed
With many smiles.

The thing about life
Is being able
To remain faithful
In what is capable.

Power is available
To not be a conformer
But accept God’s grace
And be a transformer.

To do what we enjoy,
Fulfilling the mission
God has given
In the great commission.

To go after
What is most essential
Using our gifts
To full potential.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    This poem is inspired by 2 Corinthians 5 and 6. The purpose given to Paul inspired in him the determination to blaze a path; making it easier for others to understand and receive the power of God and the great treasures available to anyone that accepts God’s grace.
