I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Devotion— How to Gain Discernment

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

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—
Against the fraud,
And for the rule of righteous law.
Help me, Lord, know truth from lies, and then,
Give me strength to stand forthright and strong.
