A GIDEON MOMENT

A GIDEON MOMENT

 

Perhaps she meant what she said,

And was Holy Spirit led…

“You’re the strongest I’ve known”,

Not a feature I’d own

But rather, not let it go to my head.

Church was a time for crying,

The man whose self was dying…

Couldn’t sing very long,

Tremor in his song

And the Spirit new hope was supplying!

I had been to my bottom and back,

Or at least was on the right track…

Dependent on God

Is hardly odd,

When He’s the only one with the knack.

Perhaps God was saying through her,

Pronouncing a new “Ben Hur”…

Gideon hid

When an Angel bid*

Him, as a mighty warrior!

Surely I needed exhorting,

For my strength was feeble and halting…

I came there to see

What the Lord would do with me,

I needed encouragement salting.

It was reaffirmed that hour

That although I’m different I flower…

By far the best

At the Lord’s behest

Being part of our church–in Godly power!
