Blessed To Be A Blessing

Blessed To Be A Blessing “4 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.” Psa 1:1 NIV The blessed delight in the law of the Lord And meditate upon it day and night; Like fruit, blessings yield in season, Giving man pleasure and delight. The hand of God does cover— The righteous in His sight. Until eternity becomes their victory; Salvation their new birthright. The blessed become a blessing— To help the poor and bereft. The love of God in their hearts— Goes out to the right and the left. When they become a fountain, More blessings each one does find. They continually display God’s glory, Just as He originally designed. The blessed become a blessing, When they share salvation’s story; Demonstrate by their lives, A picture of God’s glory. Our actions show our heart, And even if our pockets are bare; Actions of kindness— Reveal a God that cares. The blessed become a blessing, When faith or love is shown; A caring heart and a gentle hand— Is by God’s grace daily grown. All of us are born selfish— To bless others we must learn. To observe God’s hand in others lives Is something the spirit leads us to yearn. Copyright © 2010-2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com
