Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 11/25/2012

Here is another reminder to get your daily dose of wisdom from Proverbial Thought. Seriously, sign up to receive updates if you have not already!

Speaking of being thankful, this poem fits in … probably not the way most people immediately assume, if ever.

Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:19-20

The poem is also based on this other passage from Paul:

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:8-10

“I am finding that I am thankful
for my faults.”

filled with faults

every person is filled with faults
i used to complain about them
why would God make us suffer
because of faults we have
i am finding that more and more
i am thankful for my faults
they remind me to be humble
to see that i need Him and others
they teach me to overcome
with Christ fighting for me
there is nothing that can defeat me
i understand it all now that
it is okay to be filled with faults
they are actually gifts from God

Taken from deeper words for God from a simple man of God by daniel m  klem, page 209.

  1. Daniel, Grace Grace, without pain would we know wonderful grace?
