His Gold Will EVER Stay

Robert Frost was a pretty disheartened man.  He was also one of the finest poets whose work I've been blessed to encounter.  His words touch me; I'm not alone in that opinion.

One work of Frost's in particular titled, "Nothing Gold Can Stay", so marked me with its pitiful truth I felt compelled to answer it with a work of my own - setting apart a life and a world centered in Christ Jesus from the dismally true desolation of earth's cursed state.  The cycle of death's grip on mankind since the fall in the Garden of Eden is marvelously and painfully depicted in Frost's poem.  If you haven't read that candid, sad work of his - read it; it will touch your spirit, too.

However, living life for Jesus offers new answers in hope and inspiration starkly contrasting the truths of the fallen earth's condition lamented in Frost's work... and thank God.  With this poem - penned by yours truly a few years ago - Holy Spirit powerfully and joyfully answers Frost's brilliant, despairing poem.  It's titled, "His Gold Will Ever Stay".

I pray you are blessed and encouraged by the redemptive truth ringing from its stanzas... God is AWESOME!

When God imparts His Life,
He redeems a man from strife
then spreads His seed in Gold
to 'dust' the new man's soul.

Though saints do often weep,
such rich comfort floods the sweep
of God's Arms in tender sway,
they know Gold will ever stay.

And through darkest trials will come
the transforming to His Son
if we understand and persevere
until the battling's done.

God's Seal each faithful hour
trumps to all this Truth and Power
through the 'redeemed' voice of clay:
"His Gold will ever stay!"

That is a truthful, faithful answer to the sedately sorrowful yet sublimely succinct words of Mr. Frost.  It's true that, while sin reigns in the earth and in the hearts of mankind, nothing gold can stay.  But it's also true that God has birthed new life and hope into the world... 

Faith in JESUS CHRIST makes all the difference, because through the shedding of His Precious Blood God's "Gold" claims its rightful resting place in our hearts, minds, and lives.  We have but to accept His Blood sacrifice and redemptive plan for the reality of this Blessed Hope to burst into our lives!  HALLELUJAH!

All is NOT lost, dear saints!  For HIS GOLD will ever stay!

Let Him 'dust' His Redemption on your soul today by praying this prayer sincerely...

[Prayer of Salvation and Redemption:  Father God, I repent of my sins and ask Your forgiveness of them.  Please make Your Gold my gold by coming faithfully into my heart and life today as Lord and Savior, forever.  I welcome Your birth of New Beginnings in my life today, away from the sin and shame of the curse.  Dear Father, I thank You and ask all this in faith believing, in Jesus' Mighty Name.  Amen.]

Did you just get saved?  If so, TELL ME ABOUT IT so we can REJOICE together!!

May God bless you and seal this magnificent, joyous truth within you always - down to your very core - in Christ's Name.  Amen.

Praising the Name of Jesus Unashamedly in Truth Always,

"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)
