A Roundabout For Christ - Poem by Luke Easter

I want to be wherever God needs me,
Whenever and however I have to be,
Not what I feel or can and cannot see,
Only bringing glory to The Holy Trinity.

Even if there’s pain and suffering in that place,
I’ll make it through for sufficient is His grace,
No matter how many trials & tribulations I’ll have to face,
On the cross at Cavalry my Savior set the pace.

God is the Author and Finisher of our faith,
Go to Him with defeat already written on your face?
Jesus came as an example of our Creator’s very best,
Why would you go back to God with anything less?

A reason why many answers to prayers are never received?
People do not thank the Lord for what the Word says to believe,
Since we are new creatures born through the Blood of Christ,
There’s no longer a need for the insecurity of our former life.

Sure Christ Jesus was the only perfect One to walk the earth,
We now have that right through the creation of our new birth,
Certainly it does not mean we will always get everything right,
2nd Corinthians 5: 7, that’s why we walk by faith & not by sight.

You are not paranoid because in poetry we seek perfection,
It’s just a way of thanking Jesus for the Crucifixion & Resurrection,
Always aim to seek His love and endless perfection,
Otherwise we will only experience defeat and rejection.

It is not the will of God for us to be down and out,
However, if you go to Him with a whisper instead of a shout,
Check in the dictionary for the meanings of “Roundabout”,
Now, ever heard the saying “Who let the dogs out”?

Computers have a tools button for checking spelling and grammar,
So later on you won’t feel like beating your head with a hammer,
You are not digging a ditch just to rearrange a pile of dirt,
Before posting anything you write, have another check your work.

If someone you never knew gave their life for your redemption & sins,
Only for the hope of always being together in the Kingdom, Amen,
Do you say “I’ll praise & give thanks soon as I see you when”?
Why not start thanking our Lord & Savior now instead of then?

How should I thank Jesus before I will ever see?
The same as He’s already done for you and me,
Stop being filled with innuendo, excuses and unwarranted prose,
You’ll never get anything from God asking as a second hand rose.
