Lost and Found

My life, is mine to live and I will choose how to live it. My path to walk awaits. It lies before me, I can accumulate Good or bad I can become rich or poor As time and circumstance dictate It will not be 'all' my choice (Apart from) giving my life to Jesus, That is a soul’s choice alone. So would I at some point give everything I own away? Will I 'choose' to leave myself utterly helpless? That would not be a good move. And yet when life is ending, All will be removed from my ownership Even 'this my life' I will not be able to operate it anymore And who will possess it? Who searches in life’s lost and found? At closing time? Who will own my destiny? Would it be better To freely give my short human life to Jesus; right now? Or wait until its eternal lease is assigned, and to whom? ©Joe Maverick 27-3-2018

Christ came to do his Fathers's will, I dedicated my life not to Jesus , but to the ONE whose name he said we must honor and obey as he did. Jesus called a faithful and true witness...not witness to himself but to his God and my God. Glad you are comfortable talking about spiritual things.

Bright warm Spring to you dear poet...Yes, I arrive as the weather, unpredictable, yet I arrive...*sm...In your introverted, yet (unreticent) write here, I find you somewhat aloof yet furtively benevolent, truly philanthropic... It truly was the felicity finally finding the you 'mongst versifiers...Ty for sharing with me...Have a wonderful Spring....Much love, james
