For me, Lord?

One comment

But first he must suffer greatly and be rejected by this generation. (Luke 17:25)

The foundation of our Christian education teaches us that Jesus Christ suffered and died for our sins. Our faith and the mercy of God flows from this reality. Below is a short poetic mediation based on Luke 17:25.

For me, Lord?

For me, Lord? 

Why me, Lord? 

My soul darkens and hardens in my sin,

My will waivers with a cold still wind, 

How could I reject Your love? 

My actions reveal more than they should,

The actions of my will reject you, Lord?

And yet, Lord you love me still! 

When will I learn Lord? 

You suffered and died for me that I may live. 

Bend my desires to Your holy Plan.

Off to confession again to reshape this man.

God is good.

God is Love. 

JMJ, pray for us,

Jay
