Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Heavenly bliss

Many go down life s path with lofty plans 
To amass a great fortune of houses and lands 
And to live a life of pleasure and ease, 
Thinking happiness can be found in these. 

Others pursue power and worldwide fame
 To be known by all and win their acclaim.
 But those without God who attain these goals
 Soon find emptiness remains in their souls. 

They couldn' t find the happiness they sought 
For it comes from Him and can’t be bought. 
If only they realized these things won t last
 Since life is fleeting and will soon be past 

Wealth, worldly pleasure, fame, and power 
Will all be gone at death s dark hour. 
And beyond the grave when eternity begins 
Those unsaved will be judged for their sins. 

If only they would believe in God s Son
 And repent of the sinful deeds they’ve done,
 Then they could go down life s path 
Not needing to worry about God’s wrath. 

They would have the joy they longed for, 
Inner peace, contentment, and much more 
For when their lives on earth shall end 
Heavenly bliss would at once begin!
