Immersed In His Word

Torn and tattered
Taped and tear-stained
Scripted margins
Bolded refrains

Highlighted and underscored
Yellow headings …Verses pink
Emphasized to remember
His words sink in deep

His commands flood the soul
Engulf the spirit within
Hold fast to His precious words
Read them over and over again

Know them well enough to recall the book… the chapter… the verse
Be enveloped
Completely swallowed up
Absorbed, submerged, immersed

In The Living Word
Written on every page
Words to which the redeemed heart clings
Words the saved soul will engage

In purposeful undertakings
Earnest and conscientious activities
The boldness to accomplish… so simple
Yet some will never perceive

That Faith…

Blind faith
Justification by faith… is all you need
Faith like a child, secure without question
Simple Faith… trusted belief

In everything He said
All He did at Calvary
Shedding His blood for all
If we would only believe

Keeping a heart that is open and willing
To breathe in the Savior’s love
Trusting in the promise of His Grace
His death and mercy… made us worthy of

So if you feel torn and tattered
Worn out like The Old Rugged Cross
Immerse yourself in the pages of His Word
Turning there….you will never be lost
