COME CLOSER

1200-210-jesus-christ-photo3

Holding my breath in wild anticipation,

I come to you prepared for the best,

You reach out to me with loving arms,

Your enfold me,

You protect,

You cover me,

You fill me with love unending,

Come closer,

Let me see Your scars,

Let me hold the once gentle, yet strong hands,

Pierced by spikes and pinned to a cross,

Release me from the shame I feel,

The feeling of unworthiness,

From the guilt that clings to my soul,

Make me whole again,

Renew my spirit so I can proclaim your love,

A love that resists no one,

Covering iniquities,

Washing away our sins,

Comforting us as we think of them,

Come closer,

So I can hear your words,

Words of comfort and peace,

Words that transcend all comprehension,

Yet so easy they can be understood by all,

You speak and the world changes,

You teach,

You promise,

You profess,

You give hope,

To a dying, shattered world,

A world intended for so much more,

You bled,

You died,

You conquered the evil one,

You rose again,

Defeating death,

Providing eternity,

For ALL people,

Come closer,

You are all I need.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
