HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER, SO THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG IN THE LAND THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GIVING YOU. (EXODUS 20:12 *NIV )
We began this message with the Fifth Commandment. Now this Commandment is the first one with a promise attached to it! Now as we honor our mother and father, let us not forget; to honor our Heavenly Father as well. For; HAVE WE NOT ALL ONE FATHER? DID HE NOT CREATE US? (MALACHI 2:10)
Therefore today I would like to share the following poem with you. A poem dedicated to our Heavenly Father!
He can calm the troubled waters
When you walk in dark despair.
There is hope when you feel helpless
Knowing that the Lord is there…
Sharing in your sunshine moments
Or in valleys deep and wide,
He is always by your side.
There’s no other friend so faithful
Through the sunshine and rain,
Through the teardrops and the laughter,
In your joy and in your pain.
We could never, ever thank Him
For His love He gives so free,
Never changing…never ending
Throughout all eternity.
Oh, the wonder of all wonders
As we live from day to day,
Knowing that we have a Father
Who is with us all the way.
Poet, Gertrude B. McClain
So, Friend, on this and every day; GRACE AND PEACE TO YOU FROM GOD OUR FATHER AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. Amen. (ROMANS 1:7 )
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
