Stepping back for a while...

I'm going to step back from blogging for a little break.  See you sometime in the not too distant future.



Hand in hand, we walked that road
They spoke of things- we were never told
Daylight promised- in the night
Drifting near to the edge.

They called to everyone, come this is the way
Thousands in unison, as scripted in a play
Lifting desires- to an empty throne
Drawing near to the edge

To a pilgrim of the tide
Said, I was here just for the ride
As the doorman asked for my pledge
I stepped back, stepped back from the edge.

Turning away, we took another path
The climb was steep, the die was cast
And as we walked along- we left behind our past
Stepping back from the edge.

Raindrops fell, washed away our tears
What we lost was nothing- more than our fears
And as we dreamed- we fell to sleep
Walking back from the edge.

To a pilgrim of the tide
Said, we were here just for the ride
As the doorman asked for our pledge
We stepped back, stepped back from the edge.

  2. how are our works acceptable to God as believers. Are our works done in faith acceptable to God? Yes. Why? For Christ’s sake and that alone. The standard of acceptance for our works is still perfection. The Law is still binding. Yet we are under grace. So because we are in Him, our persons and our works are both accepted as perfect
