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 anymore 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 II!

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 is new?

Six months without let-up again down to 4.

After combing that forest then!  War no more!

Peace!  Sweet sound of it!  Home, state-side!

Prepare for preaching task, no free ride!

.

.

Then 30 years across this 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 that salten shore,

California, all roaming is done!

Living for Jesus!  Do not need that old fun!

.

.

Fun is for kids, full of pleasure the norm,

Soon grow out of this pattern and senseless form

Of activity leading just nowhere!

Now heaven is my home with souls I led  there!

.
