POEM

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

That many of us hate!

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!
