Reward Comes By Brenda Drake

God loves us and He loves to work through us.  When we live a life to glorify Him, He in turn rewards our faithfulness.  Many times we do not at first recognize His wonderful gifts when they are bestowed. My prayer is to live a life that is always pleasing to my Lord.

Reward Comes

Every kind deed that is done,
To bring glory and profit to God’s kingdom,
Is known and noted by God above,
He recognizes every profitable act of love.
The heart generous will find,
Good deeds are done without great thought at times.
Great rewards come in ways unexpected;
To the outward eye not always immediately detected.
The heart that has been by God’s hand touched,
Is wrapped in the protective embrace of love.
The hurting heart that refuses to cause hurt to another,
Will with the rewarding comfort of God’s healing recover.
The biting tongue’s response that is by prayer replaced,
Will be rewarded by God’s Word of comfort, mercy and grace.
The forgiving attitude with words that agree,
Will the great reward of God’s forgiveness receive.
The joyous life that trusts God’s care,
Will be rewarded with even more joy to with others share.
The reward of all rewards soon comes again.
In the arm of Jesus, you are handed your reward from Him.

Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Revelation 22:12
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
