PRECIOUS AND BELOVED LORD

Today's poem comes from Ann Crediford, another faithful member of the North Jersey Christian Writers Group.




PRECIOUS AND BELOVED LORD


Thank you
for your
purity,
grace,
and majesty when in obedience to your
father, you were willing to be betrayed,
rejected,
mocked,
spat upon,
beaten,
whipped,
nailed,
and pierced
for my sin.






Ann's testimony:
I was an agnostic until middle-aged. I got saved in church, led by a very special pastor. Our teenaged daughters started attending a Bible church. Concerned about what that might be, I started going with them to check out the church. After many, many salvation messages, finally I believed. Now I attend an Assembly of God church in Wanaque, NJ. We have two daughters and four grandchildren who live in Rockland County, NY.
