"Better And Best"
Better in bitterest agony to lie,
Before Thy throne;
Than through much increase to be lifted up on high,
And stand alone.
Better by one sweet soul, constant and true,
To be beloved;
Than all the kingdoms of delight to trample through--
Yet best-- the need that broke me at Thy feet,
In voiceless prayer;
And cast my chastened heart, complete,
Upon Thy care.
For all the world is nought, and less than nought,
Compared with this:
That my dear Lord, with His own life, my ransom bought,
And I am His!
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain
the whole world, and lose his own soul?
1 John 4:17 -19
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in
the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because
fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
We love him, because he first loved us.
It's best to have Jesus Christ-- for He is everything we need!
People spend their whole life trying to acquire riches and fame,
only to die and be placed in a coffin, taking nothing with them--
and their name soon forgotten.
God doesn't forget us and He owns the cattle on a thousand hills
and many riches are stored up in Heaven for those who love Him.
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath
prepared for them that love him.
Be encouraged today, dear friend. God has loved you with an everlasting love.
Jesus said that He will never leave us, nor forsake us! If you know the Lord
Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, then you are His! And no one can pluck
you out of His strong hand!
The Lord Jesus said in John 10:27-28:
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
