The Value of Obedience

To obey is a very valuable and personal matter to God.
Sacrifice does not excuse when we do not.
We cannot bless our own behavior.
That is to usurp the authority of the Savior.
We are to wait for God to move or speak.
We cannot let our pride cause us to be weak.
God does not excuse when we rebel, or curse,
Nor disobey His command to follow the purse.
Patience, wisdom, obedience, what golden treasure.
They are what truly bring God pleasure.
If you truly love God as your King,
Wait, trust, and obey in everything.

The Ebenezer of My Life

The Ebenezer of my life
Has helped me more than I can say,
Yet I don’t want to go without trying
To praise You for leading all the way.
Without Your correction,
I never would have learned.
Without Your protection,
I would have forever burned.
Your loving shelter You provide
Covers me with Your blood.
Your hand like a levy
Keeps me from the flood.
The paths of danger and sin
Were constant in their companionship,
But Your pursuit for me was greater,
And now I have a faithful relationship.
Thank You for being my Ebenezer,
My help in bringing me safely along.
I know and trust in Your good pleasure
To bring me safely home.
