Watching

“Watch therefore for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”  Matthew  25:13

When someone has told us they will give us a ride, we watch and wait for them to come.

Lord Jesus, thank You for promising to come again and pick us up for the ride of our lives.  May our excitement as we watch for You draw many others to start looking too.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Waiting For Our Ride

Watching, waiting
greatly anticipating
knowing what we see now
is not all there is.

For there will be a day
when all this passes away
and we’ll live together forever
as His.

  1. Oh no, you made me laugh with this one.
    I’m still dazed with the ride from Darren’s site
    and haven’t forgotten yet your blooper pick up story
    and here you are talking about ride!

    But on the other hand I’m glad you did.
    The words spoke to me, “for there will be a day
    when all this passes away and we’ll live together forever as His”. Now convince me that you are not my angel?
    Hello halo! 🙂

  2. I so thought of you and my oops when I wrote this! God is just too funny at times, the way He orchestrates our blogs and stories and laughter! Angel status is a little high up for me. ha! But thank you for always making my day, getting me to smile and remember to have fun!

  3. Deb, You may not be an angel, but you are definitely one of His saints! You made me smile thinking of “the ride of our lives.” Oh, what a ride that will be! 🙂 I absolutely love this poem, too. It flows just perfectly and is filled with truth, just like Him. Peace, Linda

  4. Sometimes my weird humor leaks out here! ha! Glad it made you smile though! And praying your day flows with His truth and peace too!

  5. This post and poem made me look at that verse with a different perspective.

    Even though I know that Christians are cherished and kept, that verse has had a habit of making me frown, because it was quoted constantly in some of the churches I attended as a youth, and they did not smile much when they quoted it…I still have so much baggage.

    Thank you so much for reminding me that when that day comes it will be a day of rejoicing. 🙂

    Love,

    Theresa

  6. I’m so sorry about the hurts from the past. 😦 If this blessed you in anyway, I am blessed too. I may take too many liberties with verses in my desire to encourage! eeekkk!

    Brilliant – so true

    We peek out of the window,
    Wait for car noises outside,
    We wonder when? when? when?
    We get ready to be picked up.
    We hop in the car happily.

    a really unique touch to (as Theresa said) an often grumply quoted verse.

    thank you

  8. You can edit audio files with audacity.

  9. Thank you for the sweet poem! 🙂 So, while we’re talking about watching and waiting, how’s that blog coming along? when, when? 🙂 greatly anticipating!

  10. Only time will end the wait
    Not by some twist of fate
    But by our Father’s love
    When Jesus comes back
    From His Throne above
    In Him, we won’t lack

    And that’s a simple poem.

  11. Thank you so much Nor, for blessing us with a comment and a poem, all in one! 🙂 Trusting His timing and His love!

  12. what poem?

    That’s good though. I’m transforming from blah blah writer into a more pretty style. I’m gonna be blogging in the land of what they call “mommy blogs” – they are the ones that touch the heart. And poetry? I guess I’m picking that up by reading people like you. I love the simple, short, unique sight you have – and write with.

    I bought the domains. I’m figuring out WordPress, and all the while still transforming my writing – by reading. So two weeks maybe?

    One blog on really really deep looks into scripture

    The other on nothing but Corinthians 13:4-7 – just love

    I tremble at the thought of just one blog – and as a brilliant response to that – I’ve decided on two. I alternate between – let’s go right now – and maybe this isn’t such a good idea at all. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Me of little faith.

  13. Thank you for the info!
