SAINTS OF TOMORROW
He walked straight up to my door
And he rang my bell
But he was not at all welcome
Because he had something to sell!
My reaction at first was to say,
“ I want nothing from you!”
And to shut the door quickly
As I usually do!
Then he talked about living
As Christians today
And that fewer and fewer people
Are now living that way.
From then on no more was mentioned
Of what he had to sell
We were now just two Christians
Who were getting on well!
This made me consider
That we don’t really know
The people through whom Jesus
Has chosen to show
The way to enter His Kingdom
To those that they meet,
Whether they’re home or at work,
Or out in the street.
Now it may seem quite obvious
To you and to me
Who the Saints of tomorrow
Are going to be!
But let us think more carefully
Before it’s too late,
They may be the people

HERE AM I LORD PRAYER POEM 2018
Here I am Lord, come to me
Let me be still and simply be.
Let my busy mind be still,
Focussed only on Your will,
Emptied of the selfish I
To pride and anger let me die.
When I'm afraid and want to know.
The ifs and buts and why it's so
And what the future holds for me
And what I'm going on to be,
Just whisper, “That's not for you to know,
Trust in Me and let it go!”
And flood me with Your healing peace
That stays with me and does not cease,
And I will close my eyes in prayer
Content to know that You are there.
In the silence I am free,
And thank You Lord, for loving me!
