Greater Things Await

If you will give your all to Me, 
You’ve yet to see My best for you!
I have so much laid up in store—
Things you never dreamed or knew.

You would be amazed to see
What you missed out on all that time.
I guarantee you glorious wonders
That no where else a man can find.

I long to give you so much more
That you did not expect from Me.
I’m a Father, eager, yearning
To bring you pleasures heavenly.

Know that greater things await;
You’ve yet to taste what fullness is.
Don’t put it off or turn it down.
It’s something you don’t want to miss!

Fullness means My nearest Presence.
Fullness means My face to see.
It means to have My joy complete
And know a fellowship so sweet. 

Don’t be content with where you stand.
Move past your shallow Christian life.
You’ve tasted just a bit of heaven,
But come with Me to greater heights!

-- Charity Lacroix

Scripture Quotations:
" that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." (Eph 3:17-19)

" prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." (Eph 4:12-13)

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." (Jas 1:17)

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages thirteen through nineteen. 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. Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Jesus?
“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?"
