Beyond the fence

Within my garden walls
Life is peaceful and serene.
The blooming flowers border
The fence that keeps it safely within.

I could stay within these walls,
Never feel the strife or pain,
The weariness, or hurting souls,
But what would be my gain?

Throw open wide the gate that leads
To strewn pathways I must take,
Through winding hills, and valleys,
Spreading Love; for Jesus' sake.

Goodness, kindness, gentleness,
A lamp to light the way.
With prayer, and praise, and yearning
For these souls for which I pray.

Calling all to find the courage
To walk the path that Jesus trod.
Giving, by example, gifts that
Only come from GOD.

Yes, within my garden walls
Life is peaceful and serene.
But, oh, the joy of leading one
To the Lord of Lords and King of Kings

Scripture:
Revelation 3: 20
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:
if any man hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with me.
