IF NOT FOR HIM…by Carl Gooch

If Not for Him
Whether life is short or long,
Live it right, you won’t be wrong.
We don’t know the hour will be,
That is only for our God to see.
I wouldn’t be here if not for Him,
He gave me life and forgave my sin.
Now each day His love I proclaim,
I would be nothing if not for Him
His word keeps me ever strong
So I thank Him in praise and song.
In my mind and heart I still see,
How He bled and died to set me free.
I wouldn’t be here if not for Him,
He gave me life and forgave my sin.
Now each day His love I proclaim,
I would be nothing if not for Him
His strength keeps me strong,
To Him my life will always belong.
Each day His promise assures me,
Of His wondrous love He has for me.

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 strength...to 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 it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
