VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: JOURNEY: The B-TAB Tack





It Was A Wild West Locomotive!
The Whistle Said:

Brooo! Brooo!

As It Went!

I Had Spent All That I Had
AND
This Journey To The Unknown
Was For Me
No Fad
For I Was Trusting The Lord
For
By Jesus Christ's Faith
I Was For This Great Journey Clad!

The Sign Painted On The Engine Had Said:

Prayer And EFFORT!


The Insignia On The Conductor's Hat Said:

Effort And PRAYER!


I Thought To My Self ...
Strange ... Strange Indeed!
Until I Saw The Train's Engineer
Get Down On His Knees!

He Was Praying!

Okay! Okay!

I Took A Window Seat
AND
As Is My Custom
I Asked The Living God
For
Travelling Mercies, Please!

Suddenly ...

The Call Sallied Forth:

All Abooardd!
ALLLL ABOOARDD!


Soon ... 

We Were On Our Way!

Hmmm ...

I Don't Know What Caused It
BUT
Something ... 
Something ... Was Tickling My Consciousness!

I Looked Ahead!
I Looked Around!
In Front Was Just Backs Of Heads!
To The Side - Nothing Outstanding!
Outside
Pastures Green
AND
Even A Meandering Stream
BUT
As The Train Picked Up Momentum
What I Heard Said
You Will Not Believe!
The Train's Wheels
Were Talking With Speed!

I Tell You True
Those Wheels Spoke Plain!
I Heard It I Tell You!
It Was A Beautiful Refrain:

Believe God!
Trust His Word!
Act In Faith!
Blessings Will Come!



Soon The Train Was Going So Fast
That All I Could Hear Was:

Believe God!
Blessings Will Come!


Coming Into Some Stations
I Would Hear The Rhythm Change:

Believe God!
Trust His Word!


Leaving Some Stations
It Said:

Act In Faith!
Blessings Will Come!



But ...

I Loved It Best
When We Travelled Through The Country
AND
All The Contacts Were Made
AND
That Journeying Train Would Say ...

Believe God!
Trust His Word!
Act In Faith!
Blessings Will Come!



That Train
Seemed To Have A Message
To Fit
Every Destination
Every Departure Station!

I Had Been A Little Sad
To Leave The Known Behind
BUT
By The Time I Reached My Destination
I Had A Song In My Heart
Laughter In My Mind
AND
Hope In My Eye
For
I Had Been Reminded
That My God
Is Not Pie In The Sky
AND
I Knew
God's Heaven With My Jesus
Soon
Soon
Will Be In My Real View!

I Believe ... GOD!
I Trust God's ... WORD!
I Will ACT aka WALK ... In FAITH
For
I Truly Accept The Truth That
God's BLESSINGS WILL - Upon Me - COME!


What Is Your Conveyance Telling You?!



**--**--**--**

Trust In The Lord With Your All
Because
In That Way
 You Cannot Fall!

Satan Thinks He Controls The Ball
And
Its Residents All

But
Has No Choice But To Act
Inside
God's Omnipotent Call!
