HIS SERVANT

 
I wander through life as a follower of Him
Who calmed the waters from my storms within
And as I walk at the beach of life's sea
I see footprints in the sand, leading me...

They bring me to places which make me aware
Of my own soul's condition, my desires and fare
He reveals my own ambition, as where I stand
And gently leads me back by His holy hand

I've missed His footprints from time to time
Doing my own thing, as I followed a crooked line
Assuming that it would be alright for now
Just to find myself off track, with sweat on my brow

I've learned by following Jesus in His steps
Living according to His word and precepts
That we will be indeed a useful tool
Called wise by God, but by the world a fool

To be the greatest in the Kingdom of our Lord
One has to be humble, according to God's word
Not considering one's own comfort and care
But be servant of all, with whom Jesus we share

When we'll think nothing of ourselves, while we serve
Following in His footprints, with great nerve
Allowing His Spirit to take full control in our life
We'll see fruits for our labor, through souls that survive

Now let us reach out as true servants of God
Encouraging each other on the path we've trod
Walking together, while for souls we'll fight
Will glorify the Father and make our bonds tight.

Wonderful prose, with wonderful praise Dr. Trudy. I would expect nothing less from a gifted, humble servant of our LORD Jesus Christ.
