I am weary
with my groaning,
and I find
"I was nothin, Lord."
Nothin, at all."
"...Just a piece 'a old, damp newspaper
crumpled up, and smelly from the
garbage, that got tossed into
the rubbish can one night."
"The garbage cans were set out,
along the curb, to be picked up
Monday morning. Their lids were
on pretty tight, at least enough
to keep the smell out. A couple
nats settled on top, though
there weren't too many, being
as it was so cold out."
"Yes, My child."
But, then a funny thing happened."
"What, My precious?"
"Well, a breeze came up,
in the wee hours of the
chilly morning; it stiffened
into a sharp wind, blowing
off the smelly garbage lids.
I had been squashed down, on top
of one of the green plastic bags, so
the wind lifted me right off."
"There I was, all crumpled up,
damp, smelly, dirty, and ragged.
The breeze became a wind,
and kicked me about,
down the street,
and along the sidewalks."
"I skittered along, feeling
desolate, and lost, and
hopeless with nowhere to go.
The sidewalks were cold,
dark, drizzly, and very quiet."
"I was just a crumpled ball
of day old newspaper, so
the wind carried me easily."
"Then, suddenly, just as
it had picked up, the cold wind
died down a bit,
letting me slide miserably
along the cold, damp
to come rest....."
"at Your Feet, Jesus.
at Your Feet."
I am the Lord,
and besides Me,
there is no savior.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
