Lord Let Me Be More Like Thee! - Poem by Tom Zart
</>IT'S NOT HOW WE START IT'S HOW WE FINISH
It's not how we start it's how we finish
That lets others know how much we care.
We make our mistakes and pray to God
For all His blessings beyond compare.
God and Satan both whisper to every ear
For they know our soul control our passions.
The outcomes of life both joyful and sad
Teach which voice rewards or rations.
All Heaven's heroes except for Jesus and Daniel
Had to be forgiven for their willingness to stray.
They let God down and paid the price
And their stories still relate today.
LORD LET ME BE MORE LIKE THEE
Lord let me be more like Thee
Through challenge, difficulty and demands.
Let life’s trials drive me to my knees
For I’m eager to obey Your commands.
Let me receive Your wisdom, power and strength
To overcome life’s troubles, heartbreak and displeasures.
Teach me the right path that I should follow
To acquire Your grace, forgiveness and treasures.
Allow me to hear Your voice preach to my soul
Which overrules Satins dominance, control and blame.
Let me be more than just a self-centered fool
Free from dishonor, wickedness, hatred and shame.
Lord please prepare me to set Heaven’s example
For all who fail to make it through life on their own.
So they may rejoice and discover Your grace
As the seeds of Your love and understanding are sown.
