With All Diligence

Help me to walk
In the light of Your countenance
While I reside here,
And to know the joyful sound.
Help me to keep my heart
With all diligence…
Steady, careful, persistent,
Earnestly making an effort to accomplish
Your Holy work in me.
Thank You for time with me today.
Thank You for helping me
To be diligent.

Faithfully Pursued

For so long You pursued me
and sought to protect my heart.
You tried so earnestly
to keep us from being apart.
Even in those times
when I thought I had flown,
You were so loving and patient
to show me I was never alone.
How grateful I am
all these years later
that I finally heard Your plea
to make my life greater.
Nothing I ever pursued
has ever compared to You.
How thankful I am
that You are faithful and true.
