How To Live the Bible

Based in part on Deuteronomy 11:18-21:

House of Prayer -Let Our Homes Be Homes of Prayer

How To Live the Bible
by Michael Doyle

Thank you Father for our salvation
Certain of our coming final destination
Please hear our prayers on Palm Sunday
As we worship and praise all of your ways

Setting our words above my home
Carved in my heart as if in stone
As long as there is a sky above me
I will always follow the ways of the Holy

Fueling ourselves in the ways of health
Are the same rules as spiritual wealth
No one escapes following the rules
Those taught in life's true school

Too much pop culture over the Book
Having been put away  without a look
We need to form the habits of foundation
And in this way walk in our salvation

Choosing a verse to keep my focus on
Like a lost sheep who has gazed upon
A distraction from the rest of the flock
We forget our faith is also our solid rock

Verses that let me know the stillness
No matter how dark the wilderness
I find the words to encourage my soul
Giving me comfort as these console

Psalms or Proverbs makes good reading
To provide words of wisdom we are needing
As we struggle in the life of our days
Giving us guidance to in our troubled ways

Starting each day with a morning devotional
To quiet the moments that are emotional
A short prayer to focus on what we hear
Keeping our faith and inspiration near

Seeking out the discarded textures
That keep  lessons from the scriptures
Things that I know that I need
Are quite often in the words I read

Living on the principles of God's word
I find that the vision gets a bit blurred
When the God breathed words are ignored
Instead of using these to be restored
