God’s Word In Practice


God’s Word In Practice
By Tom D Blakely

Of all the ways to deal with folk
I thought God’s way would never work.
For months I prayed, but then a lot less. . .
For an ‘enemy’ who just got worse!

Then I saw him stuck, in difficulty
Could this be a God-given possibility?
I could help push his car out of the snow?
But. . . I could also be told where to go?

Satan gave me reasons why I should delay
Finally suggesting. . . I take more time to pray?
Well Satan, nice try, but I have to go
For when God says: Do it! I can’t say No!

At first my ‘enemy’ seemed taken aback
Confused about this unexpected attack.
‘Get in and drive, I’ll give you a push!’
I said, not waiting for him to refuse.

When we finally got to the top of the hill
I said, ‘Safe journey’ and wished him well.
He stared a moment, and then he said:
‘Thanks for your help. . . I’m in your debt.’


Jesus said: ‘Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.’
[Luke 6:27-28]
