EPHESIANS 1:17-18

EPHESIANS 1:17-18

(A poetic presentation)

Paul–and I, as well–

Pray the God’s Spirit may swell…

Your increasing sight

To do what’s right,

And to God’s great benefits tell!

Open Thou our eyes,

To Thy incomparable size…

And all Thy power

On believers shower,

Enlighten our hearts hope-wise!

Paul prayed for them every day,

That God might show them His way…

I’ll do no less

For whom God tests

Abundantly lives Christ’s way.

–Jonathan Caswell

DRAWING THE LINE

DRAWING THE LINE

 

He posted and then deleted,

A function sometimes repeated…

The “eye” reason as such

Controlled too much,

His spiritual eyes were defeated.

A well-meant comment in time,

Helped him go back behind the line…

For which he has praise

For God and His grace,

But two bloggers liked it just fine.

Perhaps it could have been saved

With a different picture trade…

Disobedience is rebellion,*

Even little things can Hell-be-on,

For him it was the best decision made!

 

–Jonathan Caswell
