    To do the work of God, he was able,
    He read and daily studied his Bible;
    Of Satan’s darts he was not afraid,
    The Lord’s servant fervently prayed.

    The mind wields frightful power:
    The path of thoughts determines
    A person’s course and health
    And eternal destiny.

    For a time, couplets were my thing. Recently, the muse settled upon the shoulders to write quatrains (single stanzas with four lines). There seems to be no rational explanation for it. It is what it is. Accept and write.

    In Jesus Christ are gathered all God’s plans,
    His abundant blessings, the glorious work of his hands;
    To enter and remain in him is my goal,
    To finally reach the salvation of my soul.

    To call upon God’s holy name,
    words alone do not suffice;
    To follow Jesus, pay the price—
    accept the Lord’s exclusive claim.

    The apostle’s list is long of the Spirit’s fruit,
    With love and peace and joy its strongest suit,
    But all from a single cloth; under his control
    He brings a transformation of the soul.

    Soreness, burns, and bruises belong
    to athletes pushing their bodies' limits,
    beginners insisting on going it alone,
    and fools who are bent on chasing rabbits.

    Of love we say too little, do we not?
    And less we act from love with a neighbor near;
    We nurse our irritations, God's grace forgot,
    Our deeds unfeeling and cold, our words severe.

    For all the suffering, pain, and wrong,
    today is yours, O Lord, and mine;
    I will rejoice in prayer and song
    and make my will with yours align.

    The healing, saving, loving touch
    Of Jesus finally came to me;
    With great forgiveness, loving much,
    I wash his feet, tenderly.
