Jesus Said So

There was nobody
You could talk to

You were sorrowed –
you didn’t have luck

Defeated and rejected,
you thought you had no worth

Yet, now, you are with me

Be bold and step out
It’s all right
If you stumble, I will catch you

Do you know how much I love you?
I laid down my life for you
so you can live eternally

Jesus said so

There was no hope
you couldn’t find anything to hold on

You thought it was over
your loss was too big

In the whirl of “Why?”
You thought you were going down
into the darkness

Yet, now you are with me
Be bold and hold your chin up
It’s all right

I will carry your burden

Do you know how much I love you?
I laid down my life for you
so you can live eternally,

Jesus said so

Like an ugly duckling
becoming a beautiful swan,
Crawling caterpillar
becoming a flying butterfly
Jesus, who can change hopeless to hope, said
“Come and follow me.”

  1. A poem from the heart – in the midst of the “whirl of why” you’ve helped us focus on the more important things – thank you
