New Poem entitled "Talking to Jesus"

Greetings, Dear Ones!

    I hope that you all enjoyed the three-day weekend off!

    I have written a new poem entitled Talking to Jesus which pretty much summarizes the kinds of conversations we all have every now and again with our Jesus.

    Not so long ago, I had a conversation with a neighbor who told me that she "quarrels" with Jesus when she asks for help and He "ignores" her requests! I thought she had lost her mind!

    Another time she was complaining about some other problem, and I asked her why she had not prayed about it. She looked me dead in the eye and said: "I am not talking to Him, and He knows why!" Now I was really sure that she had lost her mind!

    In high indignation, I really thought she had not gotten the "memo" which said that the Lord always answers His children's prayer, and the answer could either be: "Yes!" "No!" "Wait!" or, as I coin it "Welcome to the pain!" i.e., My Grace is sufficient for you!

     After much thought, I realized that she was vocalizing what we all do at one time or another, and that she was being honest about her true feelings. She believed the Bible when it said that she was a child of the Heavenly Father, and because He said we may cast our every care on Him because He cares for us. And besides that, our Bible told her that outside of Jesus being Savior, Redeemer, Lord, and King, He was also our very Best Friend which meant that she could say anything to Him, without fear.

    Please have yourself a read, and "hear" her Best Friend's response. Also, if you have ever had yourself one of those "coming to Jesus meetings" with Jesus about your life and living, please drop me a line or two, I would love to hear from you on this topic!

Be well, and be gloriously blessed,
