To Walk the Extra Mile By Brenda Drake

 

extra mile

Our Lord requests us to do some seemingly very hard things; but He is  always available to be our help and our strength to do as He asks.  It may seem impossible but with our Lord all things are possible.  To God belongs all the glory.

To Walk the Extra Mile

To walk the extra mile; turn the other cheek,
Help the poor man downtrodden on the street.
Care for the hungry, clothe the poor,
Stop speaking in a way unpleasing to the Lord.
Lay down anger, lift up another’s need,
Give as unto the Lord and renounce all greed.
Rejoice with others when your heart is heavy in pain.
Be sensitive to unspoken requests and in peace remain.
Walk the high road, but do not forget where you’ve been.
Behold the one on the low road and pray for him.
Lift your heart to heaven and give thanks each day,
Trust in God’s mercy and lift words of praise.
Bow down in worship in self-sacrifice,
Lift up the needs of another’s life.
Remember so many people need God’s touch,
And by your service you prove His love.
Be a steady walker that talks like Christ
Showing He is present and that He is your heart’s delight.
You need to place self aside to allow God to perform His way.
Becoming a vessel that truly lives what God’s Word relays.
You will indeed walk the extra mile and more within
For you are a Child of God that is filled with Him

Matthew 5:41
And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

Roman 12:1
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
