Poem I wrote about believing in Jesus is not the same as Following Jesus. A lesson I have sadly learned numerous times. Like the first line says, "Following Jesus is a lot of hard work." (but it's very rewarding)

Following Jesus

Following Jesus is a lot of hard work
It's having duties you must never shirk
It's going around day in and day out
Telling all others what Christ is about

It's being a friend and lending an ear
Helping a neighbor in times of despair
It's showing the Lord what you are made of
Following Jesus is all about love

It's being willing to reach out your hand
Showing compassion to your fellow man
It's being someone people rely on
Being a shoulder someone can cry on

It's being right there when someone's in need
It's being willing to do a good deed
It's showing the world the good Lord above
Following Jesus is all about love

It's helping ladies cross a busy street
Giving the hungry some good food to eat
Bringing the homeless in out of the cold
Teaching His Gospel is worth more than gold

It's visiting jails and hospitals too
Being a Christian in all that you do
Giving the glory to God up above
Following Jesus is all about love

Ronnie, Brother,
You & I also are on the same wave length, that's for sure.
I think my hubby could hear me clear in the other room as I was saying "YES"!!!
Of course a lovely 10 would fit this poem perfectly-- so you
get one, my brother... Keep it up, I LOVE it!!! I could do this all day!!! Well,
maybe not all day because i do need to rest... But I so love it!!!

Thank you so much for this poem... :D

Love Sister Patty, :) (Truthfollower)

My dear brother Ronnie,

I sure can't disagree with this statement of yours,
nor would I even want to... It is so true & when it
happens like it just did to us, it thrills me through &
through... :D

Love Big Sis, Patty :D (Truthfollower)

Well, Ronnie,

I saw this again, Brother,

& felt moved to reread it & comment
even if i had commented before, so
here I am...

This poem should be read every day
to people who are discouraged & need
some truthfilled words of powerful
encouragement. This is exactly what
your poem has.

Glad I reread it myself!!! LOVE IT!!!

Love, Sis Patty :) (Truthfollower)

Ronnie-
.I've heard it said and said it myself,
You can't write about a full heart,unless
you have one. It shows in everything you
say and write. May God Bless you.

I agree Ronnie, following Jesus is showing him our appreciation for his love.
I don't how I missed reading such an inspiring write.
God bless.

It's like following your heart as God would do;
If He were walking on earth with you
He says "Do as I do, and then we pray
Be an angel of mine and do as I say"

Love your poems, brother Ronnie. Hugs and God Bless, sis Mae (10)
