~ Do Not Settle ~

Post by Janice Kennedy » Thu May 16, 2013 10:53 am

~+~Do Not Settle~+~



When others toss you out,
please, do not settle for less.
God will always take you in,
His is the very best.


Don't settle for Egypt's bondage,
do not settle for desert sand.
Are you ready to enter in?
Can you see the promise land?


Don't lose your sacrifice,
God has brought you out.
You have seen His glory,
praise the Lord and shout.


It's not time to give up,
there is power in sacrifice.
Don't lose or give your's away,
can't you see His paradise?


Sow, in the time of famine.
Lookup, let His love grow.
Hold fast to His sacrifice,
He will make the waters flow.


Reach out, feel His love.
Be the little train that can!
You have come so very far,
don't you see the promised land?


Get ready my sister, my brother;
don't you hear the triumph call?
It's almost time for us to go,
waiting is Saint Peter and Paul.


I can see the promise land,
where the milk and honey flow.
With our Jesus I want to be.
I can see heaven's golden glow.


Do not settle!

Thank you very much Dear B.J.
for your kind and generous comments. Yes
our friend Linda is a very good singer and I
do want her to make a song out of this poem.
She is amazing at being able to do that.
When it comes to singing, Linda is very talented!

I never thought of it that way, Dear Helen.
It is about not settling for less than the
best that Father God has for us and to be ready
for HIM when HE comes for us.

Thank you for reading and for taking time to comment.
