As for Me and My House ~

As For Me and My House ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann


As for me and my house . . .
I’m inviting Jesus to come to live
and my heart and my soul
to Him I am going to give.

But, first I must make it ready,
clean up the dirty mess
so I’m starting with the sins
I know that I need to confess.

Then I’ll search for the idols,
which keep me away from Him
the ones new and shiny
all those that are old and dim.

I will toss them all out,
replace them with my Bible
and the books of preachers
whom I know are reliable.

I’m making sure I am ready,
so the Lord, I can serve
because me and my house . . .
knows it’s what Jesus deserves!

Joshua 24:15
King James Version

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord,
choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the gods which your fathers served
that were on the other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites,
in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord.”
