Hello, there! I had jotted down the first few lines of this one quite some time ago but could not find a finish till now.
It is easy to despair the state of our world and allow these cares to distract us from the mission we all have as His children. I pray we do not abandon His call to share the gospel, especially in this season where hope and healing are so desperately needed. May these few simple lines stir our hearts…
Why should we be surprised
When lost people act lost?
When their blinded eyes
Don’t recognize Calvary’s cost?
The things they’re doing and saying,
There’s no doubt.
Yet, these heartwrenching things
They are displaying?
It’s often the inclination they know
The most about.
Never to excuse, mind you.
God’s truth is in every bit of creation
Calling out to draw and to woo.
But, believers, I feel I must say,
The burden to share Jesus
Is on us;
The onus is on us to point the way.
And, then, it is for us to stay,
Not to neglect to disciple and to pray,
But, rather, with humbleness of heart
To be a willing part,
Of seeing His filling impart,
Springing new life out of the decay.
May we indeed be about His business, sharing the truth of Jesus with those in need! Blessings and prayers, dear friends! Thanks for reading! ❤
