The Hope In Me

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Monday morning
tears and prayers
heeding the warning
that God does care.

Praying in the week
expecting good things,
God is strong when I’m weak,
I praise Him for what He brings.

My daily bread,
shelter and clothes,
His word I’ve read
with love, He arose.

And sits at God’s right hand
where He helps His true saints
providing sustenance on demand
without strings, or constraints.

As a blind beggar
I seek my Lord’s favor
He fills my hand and ledger
with blessings, my Savior.

I do not live in a mansion
up on a hill so very high,
but He oversees my expansion,
spiritually to maturity before I die.

All things are available
to His slave, my soul,
for His gospel is salable
to lost sinners as a whole.

The good news resonates
across the earth so wide
many will hear as it detonates
in our ears till we’re on His side.

Jesus Christ, such a precious life
has spared me hell and doom,
hung with transgressors of strife
on a cross, He will come back soon.

So another week is here
let me give out a cheer
for I am Jesus’, it does appear
by the hope in me, and lack of fear.
