My Place on the Wall

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“I implore you to take your place on the wall –
whatever the sacrifice –
for every stone we lay in His kingdom
will never topple.”
*Kelly Minter
I have a place up on the wall -
It’s been chosen by Christ.
He’s gifted me with skills I need
To build a godly life,
To labor hand in hand with those
He places next to me,
Each working to the very best
Of our ability.
And as we work together in
The tasks we have to do,
His grace will be the needed key
To help us see it through.
So let’s not grow discouraged though
The task be hard or long.
But know the Kingdom work we do
Will stand both sure and strong.
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life
through our knowledge of him who called us
by his own glory and goodness.”
2 Peter 1:3 NIV
