MY NEIGHBORS

MY NEIGHBORS

Your neighbors are headed somewhere
How many of you know where?
Your neighbors are headed somewhere
How many of you really even care?

Now somewhere is not just anywhere
There really is a Heaven and a Hell,
And if your neighbors got what you deserved
You know where they would dwell

LORD I know You heard my neighbor say:
He really does not want to hear.
“Anything,” but YOU LORD
He’s made that perfectly clear

Excuses, LORD for not witnessing
You know that I have many
And ideas for reaching my neighbors,
LORD, You know I don’t have any

I have been praying for You to send someone
To reach my lonely neighbors
For You told me in Your Word, LORD
That I should pray for laborers

Me LORD?

Yes LORD!
I know I sang that song
“I’ll Go Where You Want Me To Go”
But LORD, “NEXT DOOR?”
Well OK, LORD, if You’ll go with me

LATER….
“Just now I ask you to be my personal Savior
And to forgive me of my sins”

Thank You, LORD, for my neighbor’s salvation!!!
I’d asked You LORD, why You took so long
But I think I already know, “Sorry, LORD”

LORD??
Across the street?

1st thing tomorrow LORD!

NOW?

LORD I was going to put a notch in my “Spiritual Belt.”

LORD??
You Gave The Increase,

I knew it LORD, I was just testing You.
OK, LORD, let’s go !

2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season;
reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

I prefer to call this one a story. One familiar to so many. I enjoyed the read and am thinking of my neighbour across the road who is seeking but afraid to try Jesus. Yes, often the labourer we so often pray for is 'you' and 'I' who see the need and do nothing but pray... Thanks for sharing this one with us. God bless!

Often the laborer that is needed in the field white for harvest is "me"
Thanks for sharing.
Thomas
