The Best Reward

When I reach out to others and there's no reply,
I've stopped analyzing and wondering why?
I simply choose to do the right thing
because it's the Lord I'm honoring!

My spirit's released from weights that bind,
God grants me assurance and peace of mind.
I've learned to move on, not speculate
even when others don't reciprocate!

Jesus teaches to cheerfully give
and now that's how I choose to live.
Doing all things unto the Lord,
that's the very best reward!

Colossians 3:17  "Whatever you do, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
