Monday Memories: No Longer Lost

This poem, written in May of 2019, again brings a message which has been part of some recent devotionals and Bible readings.  May all believers continue to reach out to others with the message of God’s grace and peace.  He never grows weary of gathering the Lost to hear His Word.

Walking down an empty sidewalk all alone

Feeling lost when no one calls his phone

Facing the final sunset of a life

Remembering past sinful strife

Rubbing together his chilly, worn hands

Warming a cold heart of a humbled man

 

Recalling a strong home built brick by brick

Wiping away tears when she became sick

Losing his loving bride to illness

Asking, “Why God, is this meant?”

 

Battling the raging, turbulent cosmic powers

Creating lonely darkness that sadly towers

Living without a daily dose of hope

Trying to understand his life’s scope

 

Reciting scripture as Christ says, “I am with you”

Witnessing the bloody Cross, coming into view

Testing his faith, builds continued endurance

Removing sinful chains at every occurrence

 

Loving us, God guards our hearts and minds

Smiling, the old man knows he has more time

Bringing Salvation, our Savior conquers the Cross

Blessing another life, this man no longer feels lost

    • Karla, I can understand the nature of lost. My own life experienced a period where I encountered such feelings. Thankfully, God never gave up on me. May He continue to bless with grace and peace from Jesus.
