Abound In Favor

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Contentment is a jewel in the Christian’s crown,
Paul the apostle knew how to be abased, and to abound.

He found contentment in both being full,
and being hungry, or going without, not cool.

Paul believed as we should that we can do
all things through Christ, and make it through.

For when we are weak, Paul says He is strong,
so being lowly, or small in stature is not wrong.

The first shall be last Jesus did teach,
and the last shall be first as in Heaven we reach.

So humble yourselves, and take what God gives us,
for the ultimate prize is Paradise forever with Jesus.
