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.

Trials to Grace

Just when life seems so great,
Something usually goes wrong.
Something so heartbreaking,
It makes it hard to be strong.
You feel like you’re over,
That you just won’t make it.
And the more you try,
The more your heart gets taken.
But the point you have to see
At a time like this,
Is that God will see you through.
Trusting is what it is.
Have faith in our Father.
He really does love you.
Even when you tell Him, He won’t leave.
That He won’t do.
He’ll always love you,
No matter what takes place.
These times are trials,
You can win through His grace.
