CHRISTIAN POEMS AND DEVOTIONALS FOR THE SEARCHING AND WEARY

    My soul pleads, Jesus carry me home!

  Be Strong And Let Your Heart Take Courage, All You, Who Wait For The Lord,   Psalm 31:24

   POEM CALLED LIFE

Life is like a leaky faucet
  The drops of water keep falling
In their unusual but steady pattern,
  So, comes God's interjections,
Into my busy life events,
  Some wanted, some not.

It's the one's unwanted
  They fill me with no, no, no,
Why me Lord?
  Things were so right
Please Lord, not now,
  Erase it from my life!

Then comes the dawn
  And the reality of things,
Events I can not grasp
   Oh! God help me to weather,
Carry me through sweet Jesus.

Then a calm fills me with peace,
  In the midst of all it's pain
Comes the calm assurance,
  An awesome knowing engulfs me
That you, Lord, understand my pain
  And are there to lead me home.

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY?  The history of the image. This painting in a book on leather, I call Jesus carrying me image.  It is a medieval image over 500 years old. It has the distinction of being my first choice out of all the 1000 medieval images that I discovered two years ago. But I was unable to obtain permission to use it from the French museum that stores it.  Thanks to the young scholar Shelly Patterson studying in Paris, permission was obtained.  The second point of distinction with this image is that the monk who painted it was not painting an image of Jesus but rather Tobias, a man in the Book of Tobias that is found in the Catholic Bible but not the Protestant Bible.  In this book, Jews were held in near slavery by their captives and forbidden from picking up the Jews who died on the street and burying them.  Tobias was known according to the book for gathering dead Jews and carrying them to his home for burial. Thus you know the history of the image. But to me when I saw the image, not knowing from wince it had come, immediately fell in love with it as Jesus carrying us when we are distressed. Even now that I know about the Tobias purpose of the image it still remains a top favorite as Jesus carrying me. So you can see artwork can be intended for one purpose and yet used for another.

SCRIPTURES ABOUT GOD'S THOUGHTS ON LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS
 

2 Cor 6:16 to 7:1 What agreement hath a temple of God with idols? For we are a temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, said the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you, And will be to you a Father, And ye shall be to me sons and daughters, said the Lord Almighty. ASV

Rev 3:15-4:1 "I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, I will spit you out of my mouth! You say, 'I am rich. I have everything I want. I don't need a thing!' And you don't realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. I advise you to buy gold from me — gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. And also buy white garments so you will not be shamed by your nakedness. And buy ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. I am the one who corrects and disciplines everyone I love. Be diligent and turn from your indifference. "Look! Here I stand at the door and knock. If you hear me calling and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal as friends. 21 I will invite everyone who is victorious to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne. 22 Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to the Spirit and understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches." NLT
