Some excerpts from the book
FROM THE PREFACE
"It's not the author's intent to be merely entertaining, but to produce a work that will minister to others. It is the author's hope that what is presented here will draw others closer to God."
FROM THE AUTHOR'S MINI TESTIMONY
"Consider this..... If God can turn a foolish and Hell bound sinner like me from darkness to light, using me to reach others then he can also turn many others the same way........... What if Christians would go out into the highways and byways searching for people just like me who are bound by drugs, alcohol, lust and many other things. We, through the power of the Holy Spirit could turn the world upside down for Christ. Will we?"
FROM THE INTRODUCTION TO NON-POETIC WRITINGS
"If these writings provoke others to serious self-examination, as is recommended in the scripture, that brings repentance and power to live as Christ has called us to live, then I will gladly be criticized, justly or unjustly, by those who are offended by my writing for whatever reason." I stand firmly on Galatians where Paul asks who we serve and admonishes us all.
FROM THE CLOSING THOUGHTS AT THE END OF THE BOOK
"Oh that all men would come to know and love him! There is no true peace without him who alone loves you more than you love yourself and more than anyone ever could love you."
FROM TATE PUBLISHING
"As you move through these pages,you will be encouraged, challenged and richly blessed as C R Lord calls on you to see God in every aspect of your life from raising children to loving and serving God with your whole heart.
From the Heart of a Servant is some of the most beautiful Christian poetry that exists today. You will be awakened by the Almighty as you journey through the breath-taking imagery, traditional verses, and very well thought out structured rhyme and meter that
only a true poet knows."
This little poem below expresses my motivation in presenting
these gifts from God, to you, the reader. To him alone be all
honor, glory and praise!
Should praise be given for a gift,
that god alone can give,
yes, but to god be all the praise,
as long as we shall live.
For he is worthy of our praise,
our god, and him alone,
so friend, direct your praise to him,
for of it I'll have none.
he made my mind and heart to see,
when they were blind by sin,
he gave the love that teaches me,
to have deep peace within.
so if what's written here can bless,
your life when things look dim,
just lift a thankful heart above,
and give the praise to him.
