Today my guest is a fellow member of North Texas Christian Writers Glory Writers Group that meets monthly in Corinth, Texas. Chip Groff is his name. Among his many talents he is a writer. He is a very shy person but he writes good stuff.
He wrote the poem for a couple who was adopting a baby. I’m sure they appreciated the lovely poem.
Maybe I can get him to share his talents with us again. Enjoy.
My Name is Baby
My name is Baby, I’ve just begun,
A gift from above, just like God’s Son
Tender and gentle, I feel the love,
Mommy and Daddy have from above.
I will learn to love like that too,
I think, maybe, I already do.
I’ll grow and I’ll learn, and I’ll do fun things,
And I’ll thank my God for all His blessings.
But for Now, I can’t do much
But fill my soul with my parent’s touch.

Thanks Chip for sharing.
When mission field comes to mind do you think of a different country or a different state? Did you ever think evangelizing as something you do on a regular basis? If not think about it. It can be the community swimming pool, the nail salon, the grocery store or the bowling alley. These are just a few to get your thoughts flowing. There are more than I can think of.
You don’t have to strap on your Bible and arm yourselves with tracks to be a good witness for God. You may be the only Bible the people will ever read. It is not necessary to beat them over their head with the Word. We are the living Word. We are the light. We are the answer. Our assignment is to go into all the world–at home as well as other countries.
The part of the Body of Christ that I belong to bowl in leagues and tournaments. That is our mission field and as a result of doing what God has assigned us to do many people have given their life to the Lord. We go into the bowling establishments armed with bowling balls and the light of God. We are the Bible they read. Week after week the story doesn’t change.
We should be doing what Jesus did. He was out in the world–not behind walls waiting for the world to come to Him.
It’s awesome that God can take something I love to do and use me to do my part in evangelizing that part of the world.
Can God depend on you to evangelize the world through something you love to do?
