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