Church Service - Poem by Josephine Collett

This is where you will come to meet with Me.
I am everywhere, but if you come
I will be waiting to meet you here.

You see only the surface of the people surrounding you.
They may have clear, smiling faces, but I know
what is lying buried in their hearts

Listen for My voice in the midst of all the words,
Concentrate on Me. I will hear your tiniest whispered prayer
I know the love in your heart when you sing to Me.

I don't care what you look like, or what you're wearing
or what kind of car you drive.
I have all the time in the world to care for you in the stillness.

Don't concern yourself with who knows who and who is busy talking to who.
I am here for you and have brought you here for My purposes.
They may smile and shake your hand for a moment
But I want to take your hands and hold you to Me for a lifetime.

Don't go away with the pain still inside you
I want to meet with you,
and minister to you and
heal your wounded heart.
Don't go away until I
go away with You.

See the sign outside? They made
a mess of it with that complicated name,
when all it really needs to say is
God's church, welcome.
My church, you and me,
Come in.

    Eloquent and full of insight, truly we cannot play church because Christ called us to be the church. (Report) Reply
