I have started several posts and even have 11 in the “draft” or unpublished phase. It’s just not their time to be posted yet. As I was sitting with my family..I felt the urge to write the poem below. I used to write poetry a lot, but it has been a long time.
My hope is that the poem below will make you really think. Really seek HIM. Really look within and ask yourself…
“I am living for HIM or for me?”
“Do my actions match up with my words?”
“Do I need to BE STILL and SEEK HIS FACE more?”
“Am I giving HIM my all?”
What if…we smiled at a passing stranger and that one small act changed the course of their day?
What if…we took the time to just listen more?
Would we hear something more than before?
What if…we took more time to spend with God and pray?
Would we make more of a difference with our day?
What if…we gave more of ourselves..to the sick and the poor?
What if…we heeded HIS call to help and to serve, when HE called…not after we went the wrong way?
Would we be able to pass them by anymore?
Would we realize the blessings we had missed along the way?
What if we trusted HIM like never before?
Would we step out into the unknown and feel safe?
What if we gave all we had…like HE gave for us?
Would we be able to show more grace?
What if… we loved like HE loves…with a merciful heart?
Would we be making our world be a better place?
What if…we forgave those who once held a place in our hearts?
Would we feel joy and peace in its place?
What if we learned to BE STILL and SEEK HIS FACE first?
Would we keep living our lives “our way” ?
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) ~ if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Psalm 105:4 ~ Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
The time to seek HIM is now.
Until Next Time,
