Sitting at the feet of Jesus

Sitting at the feet of Jesus As I view the days soon coming All is new for Him to reign I’ve been taken up to Heaven It’s as perfect as it began When at last I’m found in Glory I will see Him face to face I pray for a Crown so golden To offer Him, I’ve won the race. I will sing His constant praises All His promises has kept Now a mansion I shall dwell in Walk on streets of gold each step Spending all eternity near My Creator God at last Knowing all my sins and grief Are forever, in the past. If my loved one’s I behold there Amidst His splendors rays That may be icing on the cake Another blessing all my days So give me rest till you return May Your words now gladly share Guide the lost unto Your Spirit He may open hearts so bare. May God bless your heart at you've read these words. oldbuck

A tender look into the heart of the matter. To be in Heaven, to know our God. To put all our sins and pains behind us... a beautiful sentiment and peace-filling vision. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Jesse: I don't see myself as a "religious" person or a Jesus freak, but I have asked Christ to control my life. He still has a lot of work to do, but I feel "He's gaining." I self published a book of 40 rhymes called: Rhyming my religious thoughts to help make sense of the sacred. It's been out a couple years and only a handful have actually bought any, but it's a great "tract". Thanks again for sharing your thoughts with all of us on the soup. oldbuck

We are so fortunate to have a God that has done so much for us. I have a son, no way I could have had him on that cross. Nice poem and God bless you.

Rob: I often compare it to a parent sending their son or daughter into the military. But they know we are praying for their safe return. Christ demonstrated he wasn't sure of his outcome in the garden when he prayed. . . not as I will but as you will. Thank you for your comment and blessing. oldbuck

Laura: It always comforts me to hear of one that supports the idea of "A Savior". We need to continue to have concern for those that don't. I realize this isn't a "religious" site but is a place all should feel free to share their inner thoughts through writings and comments. thanks again Laura. oldbuck

Gwen: It was written as verses for a song but I don't write music so someone else will need to do that part. :o) oldbuck
