Assessing Our Allegiance

Just as the body,

needs physical checks,

so does the spirit;

our soul to the test.

Assure that our faith,

is on solid ground;

not in sinking sand,

or starting to drown.

If there’s no new growth,

then there is clear sign,

that spiritual health,

is on the decline.

If this is the case,

then seek after Him.

For He will be found,

when we search within.

Let others know too,

to cover in prayer;

and all will rejoice,

at His obvious care.

(Responding to 2 Corinthians 13:5-9)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are a kind and loving Daddy that longs to spend time with His kids.  Thank You that You continually whisper reminders through the world around us.  Forgive us for the times that we get too caught up in our own busyness, to slow down and listen.  Help us to always be intentional in our time with You, and may our ears and hearts ever be open to what You want to teach us.  Thank You that this life is all about learning and loving in You.  May our lives display clear evidence of this in such a way, that many are drawn unto You.  In Your precious and powerful Name, Amen.
