A-Z of Compassion: Zeal

For sheer dedication, for staff so polite,

For conferences organised here and worldwide;

For bloggers who write without any sleep,

For being a voice for those who can’t speak,

Thank you Compassion.

And thank you to you out there if you’ve joined me for this year’s challenge.  Clicking on the A-Z of Compassion tag will show you all the posts in this series, so please share if you’d like to; it would be lovely to see some more children sponsored.

Him and Us

We’re just the clay; You’re the One who fashions it.

We just live in time; You hold it in Your hand.

To us, things don’t make sense; You understand all things.

To us, our circumstances loom large; You see the bigger picture.

To us, the precious is something to cling to; You ask for our willingness to let go.

To us, letting go means surrendering control; to You, letting go is a compliment.

To us, letting go means trusting; You are completely trustworthy.

To us, letting go means denying ourselves; You want us to look beyond ourselves.

To us, our future is unfathomable; You know every moment in our eternity.

To us, eternity is an open door; You opened the Way for us to go through it.

To us who go through the door, the end is a new beginning.

To Him who burst out of the tomb, His end brought a new beginning – for Him, and for us.

Thank You, Jesus.
