I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Best Thing in Life

Thus says the Lord:
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;

But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 9:23-24 (NKJV)

Boasting is simply that,
Puffing up self, “me first” implied,
But the best thing in life is in knowing
Jesus lives inside,
As Savior, hope and guide.
