Heaven's Dweller

Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?
Who may abide in His House?
He with a heart that is pure,
Who has no deceit in his mouth.

One who does not worship idols,
Who is careful to keep vows begun
Who despises the ones who are vile,
Who does not slander men with his tongue.

The one who is righteous in deed,
Who casts not a slur on his neighbor,
Surely in Zion he’ll be,
Dwelling beneath the Lord’s favor.

The person who lives such a way
Will be fit for the blessing of God.
He will stand on that Glorious Day.
His ways haven’t need of the Rod.

-- C.V., girl, age 16

Adapted from parts of Psalms 15 and 24

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through sixteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
