How often do I think of God? -- Make that all day long! Truth be told, can't get Him out of my mind -- He's the One to Whom I belong. In every moment, and every situation -- Even when I'm doing wrong -- There's no escape from Him -- So I might as well go along.
Can't stop myself thinking about Him -- How Holy He Is...how holy I ain't! Meditating on the Lord is not always easy -- Not for those whose hearts are faint! But fear of the Lord yields wisdom, As well as knowledge and constraint -- Becoming aware of your wretchedness -- You feel more like sinner than saint!
All day long, walking and talking, In communion and conversation, Confessing my sins, praying for repentance, Sincerely thankful for His consideration, Praying His Indwelling Holy Spirit Would fire me up for praise and adoration, Worshiping Him in this fallen world, Till we go Home for more perfect exaltation!
Many are those compelled to contradict, Explaining away my God as some imaginary friend -- An invisible companion like children create In their world of make-believe and pretend... But how can a non-existent being answer prayers -- Just as I was praying them! -- I still can't comprehend... Unless there was Some One listening and hearing -- Caring for me dearly, my petitions to attend..?..

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
