A LIVE-IN SITUATION

Do I need Him?  Let me tell you

How I need Him every hour!

Every minute I am without Him

Life is meaningless and dour!

.

.

Every minute I am without Him

It is time forever lost!

When my life does not project Him

One lost soul could be the cost!

.

.

Are you driven?  Want to make up

For the time you have thrown away?

Not to panic!  He will not drive you!

It is His will for you to stay–

.

.

In the comfort of His Presence,

Weak or strong He says “Abide”!

Weary?  Fearful?  Invitation;

“Follow Me” with Him reside!

.

.

Often I have heard His invitation. (*)

Sorrowfully sometimes I have failed.

Failed to heed that invitation

Trudging, doubting, far off trailed.

.

.

Do not you see?  It is in abiding!

It is a live in thing each day!

Walk, not trudging, run, not stumbling

He will strengthen all the way!

.

.

If abiding in His presence

Strength each step He will supply.

“Running, you will not grow weary,” (**)

“Walking, faint not…” ever try?

.

.

I am running now, not fainting,

I am walking.  Try to see;

It is three hours past my bedtime

I am still plugging, doggedly.

.

.

No, not running, not much walking

I am still near eighty-five,

But I am doing what God’s directing

And He is keeping me alive!

.

.

(*)   John 15:4,6,10

(**) Isiah 40:31
