THE PATH OF THE JUST (POEM AND BIBLE VERSES)
Hurray! My lovely niece celebrates her birthday today! As is my custom, I want to bless her with a poem. I pray the blessing reaches you the reader too in Jesus’ name.

The Path of the Just
The path of the just keeps shining brighter
The path appointed by their Maker
That path though ever straight and narrow
Will often lead to a great tomorrow
May your feet abide the course
May you win the tempter’s wars
May you find the treasure trove
Positioned by the Father’s love
I pray your life fulfils your purpose
To tell each person what he owes
A debt of love to the One who died
To bring him o’er to the Father’s side
