YOUR LIFE is Jesus to someone,
though tattered and torn it may be.
Though often times weak and unstable,
you're all of God someone will see.
YOUR TONGUE is Jesus to someone.
That idle, insensitive word reflects
to at least one searching heart
an idle, insensitive Lord.
YOUR GOALS are Jesus to someone.
What you put first, they believe,
are the goals of God for the Christian.
Your life is all they receive.
YOUR FAITHFULNESS ...
that's Jesus to someone.
Their judgment of how God is true,
rests unquestionably in the faithfulness
they see day by day in you.
YOUR LOVE is Jesus to someone--
that someone who is seeking to know
that Jesus will follow and guide
and befriend wherever in life they might go.
SO BEWARE lest others blaspheme God
by what you say or do,
for the only Jesus that someone knows
is the Jesus they see in you.
I Said a Prayer for You Today
© Richard J McIntyre
I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although He spoke no word!
I didn't ask for wealth of fame
(I knew you wouldn't mind).
I asked Him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind!
I asked that He'd be near you
At the start of each new day;
To grant your health and blessings
And friends to share your way!
I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care
I prayed the most of all!
Note on origin: This is a poem that
wrote to his ailing step-father.
God Bless you,
