DECIDED FOR JESUS

Decided for Jesus, like adrenalin charge,

Vitality thundered, this boy is in charge!

For example:  I led another to the Lord!

Exuberance!!  Could I any more afford?

.

.

Sure cooled off later, fire grew dim,

Though established it was!  I would live for Him!

I often fell back to the ‘old’ ways,

Then cried for forgiveness, up and down those days.

.

.

Those days, service days, of World War Two!

Philippine Islands, sure nothing to do,

But get shot at, killed, whittled down.  It is true!

Squad of 12, down to 4 often, and what’s new.

.

.

Six months without let-up, again down to 4.

After combing that forest, then war no more!

Peace!  Sweet sound of it!  Home stateside!

Prepare for preaching task, no free ride!

.

.

Then 30 years across the country, Pastorates filled,

Three-year man, east to west new sermons distilled.

Invited back at times but we kept plodding on!

California, of course, from most states upon!

.

.

Nothing like pure sunshine!  Roaming no more!

Settled back, of course, near Salton shore,

California all roaming is done!

Living for Jesus!  Do not need that old fun!

.

.

Fun is for kids, full pleasure the norm,

Soon grow out of this pattern, a senseless form,

Of activity leading just nowhere!

Now Heaven’s my home with souls I led there!

.
