All of the world’s a stage,
And all people are merely players;
As Shakespeare wrote many years ago.

In life’s arena, I won’t live in a cage,
I won’t stay in constant fear,
And I won’t in self-pity wallow.

Open the book, turn the page,
Put my quivering heart in gear,
Take the chance and go!

I’d risk anything for my Lord,
I’ll leave everything I hold dear,
Just so that Him I may follow.

I’ll take up my cross, obey His word,
And not worry, because my Savior is near.
I’ll give Him the glory, because it’s His show!

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚ β™₯

      Oh! I didn’t know that! (I’m in chapter four of the Gospels, I haven’t quite made it there yet, but I’m getting there!) That reminds me a little of Job. After he lost everything, God gave him more than he had before. But I believe that was twice what he had before, not a hundredfold. Wow!

      Yes! πŸ˜€ Deny ourselves, take up our crosses, and follow Him! πŸ™‚ That reminds me of the short story you posted on your blog. Our cross doesn’t look so heavy once we compare it to others! I really liked that story. πŸ™‚

      • Wow, Grace…thank you for remembering my story! That’s nice…

        It’s kind of like Job, but he lost everything as a lesson to Job’s wife and three friends that one can hold onto their faith even in the worst of times if they are sincere in their beliefs. God can give and take away for reasons we may not know about at the time…or ever!

        And the “hundredfold” is just a figure of speech I believe. It just means we who have the loss of friends and family or anything really, will have more than we can imagine in return for staying with the Lord.

          • I believe it was Job’s loyalty and faith the Lord wanted everyone to see…even though Job suffered, he never sinned against God. His wife and three friends did wrong in the sight of God. And of course, Satan was taught yet another lesson that God is mighty while the devil is weak…
