In Praise Now Sings

My heart rejoices in the Lord;
my spirit is lifted up in the Lord.
My mouth scorns the evil nation,
because I rejoice in your salvation.

There is none as holy as the Lord;
My salvation is only in the Lord.
He is my refuge and my fortress,
I run to Him in times of distress.

My deeds are considered by the Lord;
Knowledge has been grant by the Lord.
Let my proud and arrogant heart be stilled,
And with the love of Christ let me be filled.

I pray, guard our footsteps O Lord;
May we forever be true to our Lord.
I am overcome by your many blessings;
My heart and soul in praise now sings.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
