TITLE: THE HARVEST IS READY

THIS IS YOUR PERSONAL INVITATION:

Jesus said to feed His sheep no matter where they are:

Some of us travel to other countries, some of us not verY far.I encourage you to look around for they are crying at our own front door. Frightened and all alone trying desperately to battle this
war. Imagine, just for a
moment, being locked somewhere inside discouraged and defeated, and
not a soul in whom to confide. Then a knock comes upon your door,
and a ray of sunshine appears. Triumphantly the Son of God erases
every fear.
This is a call to the body to remember the sheep out of the fold. The ones who have yet come to know Him, and the ones for
whom faith has waxed cold.
The harvest is certainly ready, the fields as white as the snow. The question is, and always remains: Which one of us will go?

Interesting structure. I couldn't figure out if that was an error that occured when the text was imported, or if you meant to structure the piece that way. Also, I detected some rhymes...if this is a poem, then the structure unfortunately detracts from the presentation.

Nice message, though. Nothing like a little trumpet blast every now and again to wake those that shouldn't be sleeping.

Thanks for posting it.

Yep Jesus said to pray for workers in the Harvest...the Harvest is plentiful. OUr pastor always says if I paid you $1000. could you witness?

I like your poem, Mary, but I agree with Dave, that it needs re-structuring. :)
