HAPPY SABBATH + The Inheritance!









Daddy said that when he died, I would have an inheritance
Daddy died - I held out My hand
Inheritance? 
Done gone! 
Run away!

When she married, her husband said
When he dies she will have an inheritance
Hubby died
Inheritance?
Denied!
Bills and taxes multiplied!

She went to Jesus
And he said:
"I died! You have an inheritance!
Glory supplied bona fide!"

But she?
She stuttered
And ... lied:

"I wanted the World!"

And that is when Life became Base 
As she whirled and twirled!

She became ... You Me!
Frolic became Folly!
Dancing was no more Jolly!
Things became a drag! - I was eating ... dust!

I got up out of The Dirt and
Called to Jesus - He didn't desert
And I prayed earnestly for My Cleansing
After behaving like a totally sinful jerk!

My Inheritance from The Divine
Is Mine - take or decline - I make The Choice
Not Circumstance 
Not Human Whim
Never HIM!

I Trust in The Lord!
He is Ever Faithful 
With Punishment and Reward!
My Inheritance is Mine!
I, alone, make The Receipt or Rejection Call.


We can't Hold 
The World and The Lord 
at one and the same time!

Take the World 
and
We Give Up 
Our Heavenly Inheritance!

Take JESUS
and
We Receive 
The Eternal
Heavenly
Unchanging
Unchangeable
Unfailing
Unrecallable 
Totally Touchable
Embraceable
Non-reducible
Non-taxable
Non-divisible
Unsharable
Ever-expanding
Inheritance
of
The Believing
Faithful
Righteous
Overcoming Child 
of 
God All-Glorious!
