In the pouring rain many miles from home
Stuck on the side of the road with a tire blown
Out in the darkness on lonely stretch of country road
There in the distance I saw lights with a welcoming glow
I sat there for a moment but knew I had to venture out
The rain pounding my windshield and the wind whipping about
I pushed the car door with all the strength I could muster.
The wind pushing me back with a gale forced bluster.
I managed to squeeze out into the howling rainy night
And started my journey to the house with the warm glowing light
As the wind pushed me along and the rain made it hard to see
I had made it! Oh what a beautiful wonderful sight before me.
I knocked on the door but nobody answered so I knocked again
But still no answer so I opened the door said hello as i walked in
I went from room to room looking to see where they could be.
I open a door and with wide eyed wonder there before me.
A room full of mirrors reflecting the warm glowing light
Something was taking me over as I stared at this wondrous sight
The mirrors radiating light began to surround and draw me in
A gentle loving pull with peace I couldn’t even start or begin
To explain this awesome love and peace I felt inside my soul
I started to jump for joy and dance around the room out of control.
As I passed the mirrors in dancing delight something caught my eye
It was a figure of a man with holes in his hands and a wound in his side
As soon as I saw him I fell to my knees and bowed my head and cried
He began to speak to me about his love and why he was crucified.
I exclaimed “He is my resurrected King who died for me and covered my sins”
He said I have been written in the Lambs book of life and now your life truly begins
Thank you Lord for your blood you shed to wash me clean as the driven snow
Then he vanished but I knew he was still with me and never would let me go.
The rain has stopped and the sun is shining brighter than I have ever seen or known
So, I go outside to take the long walk back to fix the tire that was blown
But there it was parked out front with four new tires and fresh coat of paint
Then I realized your love is so vast no one could contain it or hold it in restraints
For you will never leave me nor forsake me and no one can take me from your loving hand
You are my salvation, my comforter and the solid rock of foundation on which I stand.
