Jesus is calling His bride
Drawing her near to His feet
To be purified
This repentance is messy, never neat
Painful … as we shed skin
Peeling back layers
A washing with His blood … cleansing our sin
Rebuke and pray for the naysayers
Those who refuse to believe
Jesus died, a total sacrifice
Resurrected the Lion, never again to leave
Those who don’t recognize the price
Are risking their souls
Outside the gate, sent to darkness to take its toll
To me this plague poses a soul emergency!
So forgive me as I come forth with His messages in urgency
All praise and honor and glory
To the author and finisher of our eternal story
Such bounty from heaven through this past week. A prayer meeting connecting five women across the miles. A time of fasting and sharing wisdom thereafter with believers, again across the miles. Sunday school online and church service online.
This poem is a birth of all of the above.
The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who on Him in truth (Psalm 145:18).
I pray you call on Jesus today.
He only wants you closer. No matter what weight you are carrying, He will take it.
Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30).
There is a comfort only Jesus can provide.
Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you (2 Thessalonians 3:16).
