Accidental Wisdom

You are dearly loved and longed for,
In being my joy and my crown;
Stand firm in the Lord remain pure,
Not letting this world get you down.

I urge you to stay with the Lord,
Although surrounded by heathen;
For remaining in one accord,
For your journey unto Heaven.

I also ask to help women,
Who have contended the Gospel;
To understand and not to shun,
Inviting them to the temple.

I want them in the Book of Life,
They must be able to confess;
The Lord is able to stop strife,
And is more than willing to bless.

Rejoice in the Lord our God,
I will say it again rejoice;
Giving Him your honor and laud,
Praising and lifting up your voice.

Let your graciousness to be known,
Let your moderation be found;
The Lord is near and does condone,
Rejoicing in a joyous sound.

Worry not about anything,
But in everything through prayer;
Supplication with thanksgiving,
Petitioning in what you share.

May the peace of God that passes,
Of all understanding and thought;
While preaching to the masses,
Guard your heart and mind what Christ sought.

Whatever is true you have learned,
All that is honorably pure;
Anything justified as earned,
For praising a virtue to cure.

Any moral excellence that lives,
Do all that you have seen and heard;
For injustices God forgives,
God will be with you in His Word.
