Temporal Trophies

Seek no famous reputation,
awards or big promotion...
spend your time in prayer
pleasing God with your devotion!
be not swept away by the
latest fads and trends,
stay grounded in God's word,
worry not whom it offends!

Temporal trophies will perish
and medals too shall rust,
but lasting are the treasures
if in God you put your trust!
soon the day shall come
when God gives out rewards...
He'll present them to contrite,
humble servants of the Lord.

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.
