From beyond this existence came Jesus… to live as mortal man, to die and be resurrected- showing us there is more to life than the one we see. He is still reaching out to you but time draws short.

Is there darkness in your depths?

Is there no light you can see by?

You must know this as but temporary,

you must show some belief to try…

so then judge ye not what is right?

So then there is no need to cry

but to reach for the hand reaching for you!

Don’t be afraid to fail or to stumble!

Don’t be unsure in yourself of worth,

you can be no more than I, a human-

you can be more than I on this Earth,

learn to seek God, repent, and do right…

learn to flee those pleasures without mirth

but to reach for the hand reaching for you!

Please know I too have felt despair!

Please know I was once equally lost

but we have Jesus who loves each one…

but we shed our sins, bought us by cost

of His own blood, nailed to a cross, love

of His heart for His own, no churl¹ so tossed

but to reach for the hand reaching for you!

1… churl: an impolite and mean-spirited person, or a miser, or a person of low birth; a peasant.

God gives us all the same chance… the chance to openly choose to: seek Him, know Him and to render praise… to desire to worship Him. This is not some capricious God but God almighty… The Creator of heaven and Earth. All of creation displays His handiwork… just look to what is said in scripture. From Greek we get ‘Endeiknumi (to point out)’ and please look to the scripture references to the right side and click on them to examine what is there- to strengthen the meaning for you, to gain clarity of mind and a heart for God’s own purpose(s)… His will to be done.

The blessedness of the righteous

– We have to praise the Lord that there are a people in the world, who fear him and serve him, and that they are a happy people; which is owing entirely to his grace. Their fear is not that which love casts out, but that which love brings in. It follows and flows from love. It is a fear to offend. This is both fear and trust. From their Lord’s example they learn to be kind and full of compassion, as well as just in all their dealings; they use discretion, that they may be liberal in that manner which appears most likely to do good. Trusting in the Lord is the best and surest way of establishing the heart. The heart of man cannot fix any where with satisfaction, but in the truth of God, and there it finds firm footing. The happiness of the saints is the envy of the wicked. The desire of the wicked shall perish; their desire was wholly to the world and the flesh, therefore when these perish, their joy is gone. But the blessings of the gospel are spiritual and eternal, and are conferred upon the members of the Christian church, through Christ their Head, who is the Pattern of all righteousness, and the Giver of all grace.

We should be there for one another (as children of God) and to declare the Gospel (the ‘Good News’) truth to an unknowing world.

9 So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.

Proverbs 14:12 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/proverbs/14-12.html

12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Isaiah 45:19 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/45-19.html

19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

Ezekiel 33:16 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/ezekiel/33-16.html

16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

Luke 12:57 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/luke/12-57.html

57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

1 John 1:3 KJV

3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

To see the parallels contained within scripture is to recognize ‘God’s circle of life’ is found by His grace. Is this not (truly) the charity of God toward all mankind? Salvation comes by way of the Deliverer!
