Sitting Saint Or Working Warrior? + PRAYER: My Lord And My God!




Flawed!
Driven!
Standard Bearers For God
Jacob
David
AND
The Apostle Paul
Not Willing To Sit Still
To Let God's Glory Be Stained
These Men On Missions
Blessed God
AND
It Valiantly Proclaimed!

Usurper!
Birthright Thief!
Adulterer!
Murder!
Persecutor-In-Chief
Each Had A History
AND
None Seemed Worthy
BUT
All Had Great Faith
AND
Firm Belief In The Word!

Standing On The Promises Of The Father
None From Battle Turned Away
Each Willing To Be For God
BUT
Only After They Had To Him Prayed!

Not One
An Armchair Warrior!
Not One
Unwilling To Face Fate!
All Trusting
To The Lord God Almighty
Ready
Willing
Prepared To Face
The Lineman's Fate!

The Calls Are Heard:

                  Keep The Communication Lines Open!

                                                 Keep The Channel Clear!

Remove The Barriers To Safe Passage!

                   Make The Way Plain Lest The Weak Die!

No Sitting Saints These!
Working Warriors All
Approved
AND
Used
By The Master
Useful To God
After Each 
Did Into Sin Fall!

So ...

If You Love The Living God
BUT
You Have Been Led To Believe
That Your Besmirched Soul's Garment
Is Such That To It
Sin Doth Cleave
If You Want To Work For Jesus
If You Are Willing
Your Given Talents To Display
If You Believe Your God Can Use You
Humbly
- As A Child Willing -
Say:

I Am Thine, Lord!
I Am Willing To Work!
My Heart Is Yours,  Lord
Give Unto This Servant
A Mission Of Work!
I Don't Know The End From The Beginning
But
Lord, I Know You Do!
Use Me
So That I Don't Use Others!
Give Me A Battle Line
That By Your Mercy And Grace
I Will Willingly Hold For You!

I Am Learning!
I Love You, Lord!
I Am Done With Scheming!
I Am On You Leaning!
In Me, You Are First!
For Me, You Are Last!
Thank You, God, For Jesus Christ
In Whom My Lot Is Cast!

As Long As You Are With Me, Lord
Wherever You Place Me
Or Send Me
I Will Go!
I Do Love You
For
You Are My Lord And My God!
AMEN.
