DayBreaks for 04/19/12 – Must I Always Be

Must I always be...your Thomas?

 I found this poem and I thought it might bless you today.  There is freedom in being honest with Jesus about both the good and bad:

“Let me meet you on the mountain, Lord, Just once.

You wouldn’t have to burn a whole bush.

Just a few smoking branches

And I would surely be …your Moses.

 

“Let me meet you on the water, Lord, Just once.

It wouldn’t have to be on White Rock Lake.

Just on a puddle after the annual Dallas rain

And I would surely be…your Peter.

 

“Let me meet you on the road, Lord, Just once.

You wouldn’t have to blind me on North Central Expressway.

Just a few bright lights on the way to chapel

And I would surely be…your Paul.

 

“Let me meet you, Lord, Just once.

Anywhere. Anytime.

Just meeting you in the Word is so hard sometimes

Must I always be…your Thomas?” – Norman Shirk, April 10, 1981, KQ (Dallas Seminary)

PRAYER: Thank you for understanding our faith and doubt, failings and triumphs, our hopes and wishes versus the reality of our shortcomings!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
