I know He is increasing
for looking in this old mirror
it is plain to see I am decreasing.
My stature was so tall
My footing was so firm
Through it all, now so small
But for Him, I’m only a worm.
Worm in its cocoon seeing a crack
Darkness deep becoming light
Move toward a gap ever so slack
Movement tho a fight, will mean great flight.
My wings now small,
not very tall withal,
He increases still and He ever will
As I have decreased and not here at all.
For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
2 Timothy 4:6-7
“Then I heard a voice from heaven say,
“Put this in writing. *From now on, the Lord will bless everyone who has faith in Him when they die.”
The Spirit answered, “Yes, they will rest from their hard work, and they will be rewarded for what they have done.”
Revelation 14:13 [CEV]
Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. [1 Corinthians 15:55-57]
Only the Almighty can snatch victory of life from the jaws of death and have a 100% success rate. I believe that is worth giving Him all praise, honor, and thanksgiving. But more so, by placing our total being into His hands.
