I Am Not Sure I Want to Hear
Scott L. Barton
I am not sure I want to hear
This word about a cross so dear
To Jesus' very heart and soul
He says that it should be my goal.
He says, behind him I should get,
Which means to follow him; and yet
I have too much to do, to give
My life, as if it's true he lives.
How can it be, when life's so brief,
And filled with heartache, pain and grief,
The Lord would still invite me where
He goes? I wish he'd not compare
His life to how I'd rather keep
All things, including those who sleep.
And yet, if I can lose my grip,
Perhaps his life might me equip.
Who do I say this Jesus is?
Can I by love show I am his?
To Pray for
Our NHS as they continue to care for us, despite staff shortages
Those who battle addictions daily.
For those affected by the major earthquake in Mexico
