Last night’s Wednesday night sermon was based on
Proverbs 3:5-8New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
Life's Loving Song by Michael Romani From the beginning Through the end You're truly winning When God is your friend Living life with grace Smiling at the chase That brings us together In our lasting forever There in our narrative Is the grand imperative To lean on the Lord Wearing His word As our shield With this we weld Our trust in Him Never on our own whim We keep our paths straight Right through the narrow gate Forsaking the evil that arrives As we grow and we thrive With God's graceful plan For every woman and every man It's not a simplistic accident But a matter of the provident Purchased from our sins Over and over again and again Revealed in our recalling Raised up when we're falling Each of us has our part If only we'd heed God in our heart Deliberate in our solemn choice Listening steady to God's own voice It's not all that demanding To trust in God in all our understanding It's strictly a matter of integrity Keeping to goodness and nobility Walked lock step and in confidence That each step is by Providence Shunning the evil in our own eyes Ignoring the idols we might idolize It is the truth of guiding light Shining out into our dark night It's the steadfastness of the good When things go just as they should Never let down in doing what we must Living our life's song in loving trust it's there in life's complex immensity Throwing down in it's fiery intensity Graciously, we find our feet in dignity From the beginning to our infinity Learning that the things that truly last Are found when we stay steadfast There before we are, He sets out provision Seeing the big picture with precision Mapped out with His blessed foresight If we follow Him, we'll always be put right With every curved and problematic turn He knows and teaches all we need to learn Putting us on our right path of the cross road And carrying the weight of our full load I will always trust In Him with all of my being No matter what it is that I think that I seeing Relying on His wisdom far more than my own His love pours out refreshing my every bone This too can be the path for you to follow Instead of being carried by the ebb and flow Instead rest in God's ways, steadfast and true This is the path of righteousness for me and you (c) September 20, 2017 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
