To Give Beyond

 

To give beyond our comfort, God’s work is what we choose.

            He notices our sacrifice and what we gain to lose.

 

He sees our inner struggle with soul and flesh down here.

             He celebrates our victory when faith defeats our fear.

 

When we choose God’s will, His love shall set in place

            Means to have our fill of His gratitude and grace.

 

To give beyond our comfort, God’s work is what we choose.

            He notices our sacrifice and what we gain to lose.

 

He sees the doubt we battle with and that we are afraid.

            He celebrates our open hearts once our faith is weighed.

           

When we choose God’s will, His love shall set in place

            Means to have our fill of His gratitude and grace.
