What I Believe
I believe God is so incredibly strong and mighty,
Yet, as Jesus, I gave him residence in my heart
In form as the Holy Spirit, they are the Almighty.
Believing they live in me, we are never apart
Best I can, I follow Jesus’ example, asking WWJD
In all my words and deeds, he is at the start.
Because I so often fail to measure up, it’s true,
I constantly seek pardon, for I know His grace,
And I believe his Word, having read it through.
The Golden Rule of Matthew 7:12, I embrace:
Treating others as I want them to treat me,
Since I frequently fail, Jesus stands in my place.
My indestructible faith will always keep me free,
Until with God and loved ones I shall forever be.
