GOD AGAINST THE ODDS

While kneeling and praying and talking to God; He said He did not like seeing the sisters at odds. He was tired of the cussing, fussing and fighting, He was tired of the gossip, strife and backbiting. We say we are His children and we love Him so, And the way we treat each other is as if we don't know. That if we search His Word in it we will find, That even Euodias and Syntyche were not of the same mind. They labored with Paul, yet they both were at odds, And their anointing; their gifts were given by God. There was no need to argue and no need to fight, No need to gossip, tear down or backbite. Now these ladies may not have done all of this, But as women of God, they did one are two on the list. We are not in this walk for fortune or fame, We are not here for a reputation or to make us a name. We are in this walk to give God glory, honor and praise, Deny ourselves, take up the cross and do what God says. We must refrain from criticizing and putting one another down, We must give words of encouragement and put a smile where there is a frown. As pieces to a puzzle we must be perfectly fit, Working as a team to pull souls from the pit. Building up, building and not tearing down, Bringing home a baptized church and then we'll get our crown. For together we stand, divided we fall, We must live a life that is a light to all. So ladies let us come together in love, joy and peace; No longer shall we be at odds, let the division cease. Penned for a book entitled Girl Talk, Women to Women, Sister to Sister and Heart to Heart 2002
