Call Me!


This is our journey,
Not yours alone.
So call me,
To take it with you.
Prophets proclaimed,
We belong together.

When darkness invade
Your mind and soul,
When sorrow defeat
Your happiness and hope,
Call me, you know
I'm your Redeemer.

When loosing is the only
Option for you,
When crying is your song,
When laughing hurts you,
Call me, i'll comfort you,
And wipe your tears away.

When friends and relatives
Cause you pain,
When flowers stinks,
Call me, i'll give you
The love rose with nice scent.

When your eager is hesitation,
When hatred is your love,
When violence is your peace,
Call me, i'll plant the seeds
Of peace and love in your soul
And water them with ambitions.

This is our journey.
Call me, so we can
Begin it together,
And explore the world
Of peace and ertenal life.

Believe in me,
For i am your saviour.
Call me anytime.
I'll be there, right by your side.
Call me.

    What a beautiful rendering of our Savior's love and His longing to be in our lives. This poem is faith building and God sent advice. So often we feel a lone when, as you know, all we have to do is call. Thank you so much for sharing. May God bless you always. (Report) Reply

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
