My Journey - Poem by Mary Ryan

My life in Christ has started, my journey’s just begun
My old life is ended, my wandering is all done
There are so many things I’ll do for Him, to show Him that I care
My life, my time, my money—with others I will share
I’ll talk to others of His love each and everyday
And for the lost ones I will earnestly pray
It seems that all I’ve promised just doesn’t all get done
Others can do so much better so must I be the one?
I know today is Sunday but it shouldn’t matter much
To miss church and instead attend a party brunch
My friends are lost so I’ll tell them of salvation free
Or maybe not in case they laugh at me
The years they pass so quickly, where do they all go?
I realize for God I have not much to show
I pledge to God—I’ll devote to Him each and everyday
“My time and talents—Yours to use in any way”
Now my time on Earth is ending, my race is nearly run
I realize my journey’s just begun
So in my shame I stand and weep
For my time, the wasted ways I’d keep
No trophies for Christ do I lay down
No jewels I’ve earned for my own crown
I feel so unworthy to be called your own
AS I kneel in sadness before the throne
“I’m sorry, Lord, for being not the one you hoped I’d be
If in my blindness I could only see
The things I’ve done, the lies I’ve told
And changed my ways before I’m old”
But it’s too late to change it all
For now in Heaven I stand in Your great hall

(The second poem I wrote)
