I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Discernment

In this day of compromise,
Help me discern wrong from right.
Keep me open that I might learn,
Issues and standards on which I must stand firm.
Help me, Lord, know truth from lies, and then,
Give me strength to stand forthright and strong.

And this I pray, that your love may abound
yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
That you may approve things that are excellent;
that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ;
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness,
which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9-11
