Flashback: Living A Big Picture Life

This poem was written in September 2013 and shows how God was working in my life at that time.


A Big Picture Life

I will spend myself for You.

Show me the world, my Friend, through Your eyes:
Not the vain and worthless mists which most will stumble through,
But the crisp, breathtaking clarity of eternity’s sweep.

I will spend myself for You.

Show me the path, my Guide, that is the one You trod:
Not the well-marked lane of mire and twisting, knotting snares,
But the sharp and lonely ridge of rough but footsure rock.
 
I will spend myself for You.
 
Show me the work, my Saviour, that You have called me to:
Not the soft and comfortable religion which leaves the world untouched,
But to batter down the Hell-gate and snatch many from the awful fire.
 
I will spend myself for You:
Because You spent Yourself, utterly, for me.
