child and crossFor to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!  Philippians 1:21,22 NIV 

I’ve made my decision, 

I’ll be all in

Christ for me now

 and Christ for me then

My comfortable ways

That’s in my past

The way of Christ

My lot is cast

To follow His lead

A suffering path

It doesn’t add up

When I do the math

Yet He never leaves me

By my side He stays

Changed by His love

In wonderful ways

My path seems difficult

Observed through your eyes

No trophies for me,

But there will be a prize

Well done will be said

That’s no small token

It’s worth the trade

My ears to hear spoken

Cry, pain, suffer


Trust, Pray, Continue

His appointment

To live is Christ

To die is gain

Suffer a little

It’s worth all the pain
