Just as I am...

Gee, that's an original title!
God has made the man.
God has made me the man that I am.
God is fully aware of all that I can do...and all that I cannot do.
I had to learn, (just like everybody else!) that I am losing abilities because I am getting older.
That is hard to admit, especially by one that depends on God for everything.
How about you?

Living in the temple,
it wears and it breaks down.
One thing lives on, however,
JESUS AS MY CROWN!
He is my living promise
in this life and the next!
Though this temple falls apart,
I will not be perplexed!

The temple, it is aging,
some things don't work at all!
However, I am living and
I've got a settled call!
Everything about this life
is for a time and season,
and that which may have disappeared
has done so for a reason.

So here you have this temple-
the good...the bad...the rest...
I do what I am led to do
and cry out "I AM BLESSED!!"
No different from others save
the attitude in heart...
may it ever cry out
"OH MY GOD, HOW GREAT THOU ART!!"

To those of you who inspire these words, thank you. You know who you are!
In HIS Service,
Jim
