To Be a Good Christian

What does it mean to be a good Christian?
How can anyone say they know?
Only God knows what’s in our hearts.
And He’s with us all the day.
Sure we make a few mistakes and probably always will,
But isn’t it up to God to decide which sin is bigger than the other?
He remembers that we are human.
That is something a lot of people forget.
If we love Jesus and pray to Him, and try to do our best,
Isn’t that being a good Christian?
I’m afraid I don’t know the answer.
But I do know I love God.
And though I may not be perfect, I am trying to do it His way.
Not mine or nobody else’s.
If anything is going wrong, I’m sure God will tell me,
And show me a way to fix it.
Thank You, God, for the knowledge
Of knowing You’re merciful and loving.

What’s wrong?
Who did what to you?
What did they do?
What’s his name?
When did they do this?
Why did they do it?
Why do you think they did it?
What did you do about it?
Have you told anybody?
Why didn’t you tell somebody?
Do you want him to do it again?
Don’t you want to forget it, for good?

Who would turn their back on you?
Who will think bad of you?
Why do you think they would do that?
Why do you think it was your fault?
Why are you running from us?
What do you want to do about it?
Where are you going?
What did I say?
What’s wrong?

One On One With God

One on one with God,
asking questions so profound.
Maybe God enjoys being sought
and even more being found.
Could it not touch His heart
for us to really want to know
how God has been from the beginning
and all He wants to show?
Our God is such an intimate God,
a God jealous of our hearts.
He just wants sweet fellowship
and grieves when we depart.
Do you want to know God
and the life He has given us all?
Just take time to seek and speak.
He will love receiving your personal call.
