I Got Extras From God!


I Followed After Righteousness And Mercy!
I Desired To Possess Them
BUT
Not As You Would A Hot Car
For I Knew That They Were Gifts From Heaven
Which Have No Shelf Life
NOR
Any Coded Expiration Bar!

NOW ...

I'd Long Been Told
By The Good Book
That God Gives More
That I Could Ask For, Think, Or See
So ...
It Was No Surprise
When I Caught Up
With God's Bona Fides
That I Had Received Extras -
Not One A Booby Prize!

I Desired Righteousness!
Got It, Getting It -  I Am Being Satisfied!
I Am Doing Well With Right Living
Having By Grace
Gotten Away From Constant Sinning!

I Desired Mercy
AND
I Will Tell You True
The God Of Heaven Gave Me
What I Didn't Know I Needed,  Too!

God's Great Mercy
Gave Me
Honor
AND
Life!
Life For Living Now
AND
Later
His Eternal Life
PLUS
Honor
Such Honor
So That I Can - In This Flesh
Approach The King
AND
At That
Stand Before His Throne
Without Dread Fear
AND
Desperate Groveling!

Take My Advice!
I'm Giving It Free!
Ask God For True Blessings
AND
Without Outward Seeking
Get The Gracious Overflowing!

Thank You,  Lord
For Saving My Soul!
