~You Can Make A Difference~

I dreamed heaven's gates opened
And I saw the great hall of fame
There stood before me, the hero's of faith
I knew each beloved name

A myriad of questions arose in my heart
I needed some answers, my way to know
What gave them that courage
That get up and go

With belief in their heart, they understood
To trust every word their God had said
Being willing to love, no matter what
Each day to be led

To believe that tomorrow
Held more promise of a future to be
They gave of their all, as examples of faith
For you and for me

Oh, may I seek that same trusting heart
To make a difference by giving my all
With a true love unto death
May I answer God's call


Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2006

They were longing for a better country
-a heavenly one.
God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
And what more shall I say?
 I do not have time to tell about
Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David,
Samuel and the prophets,
who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions,
quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies.
Women received back their dead, raised to life again. Others were tortured and refused to be released, so that they might gain a better resurrection. Some faced jeers and flogging, while still others were chained and put in prison.
They were stoned; they were sawn in two; they were put to death by the sword.
They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated,
the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains,
and in caves and holes in the ground. These were all commended for their faith,
yet none of them received what had been promised. God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
Hebrews 11:16, 32-40
