The Call Of The Shepherd - The Rock of Ages




I wanted to be Really Rich
Until I saw the Decay
That was present, and oh, so rampant
Amongst those with whom Wild Riches held Sway

I wanted to be Really Famous
Until I saw the Decay
That was present and oh, so rampant
Amongst those with whom Notoriety held Sway

I really wanted to be Powerful
Until I saw the decay
That was present, and oh, so rampant
Amongst those with whom Earthy Corrupting Power held Sway

I wanted to be Seen
To be Heard
To be Welcomed ... Understood
Until I saw what the Herding Mentality
Did to those Bathing in its Murky Water of Dragon Blood

I came upon a Plain Altar
Made of Undressed Stones and Plain Rocks
Tended by a Gentle Shepherd
Face marred, hands and feet sullied - I stood in shock
He looked at me - His smile ... I saw Glory
He talked with me - His voice ... Slow Water
Flood Raging Checked Welcoming Pure Gold
And I heard The Call of The Ages
Saying: 


"Come To Me! 
Let Me Wash You! 
I Shed My Living, Eternal, 
Saving, Blood for You!"


To say I was shocked ... Understatement!
To say I was horrified ... Let me get away from here!
To say I was sad, happy, afraid, moved, running away ... I walked to Him!
He help out His Arms ... I fitted in The Cleft
I knew no alarm!

Home. 
I felt At Home. 
I felt Comforted.
Redeemed. 
Forgiven. 
Truly Blessed.
Happy. 
So Joyous. 
Triumphant.
My Jesus ... The Shepherd ... of  Eternal Rest!

I no longer felt I wanted The World's Goods
Its Applause
Affirmation
Its Stress
I needed to be with My Jesus
At Home ... with The Eternal ... The King of The Blessed.

I gave The Wants the old "Heave Ho!"
I gave Pressure To Succeed The Seven G's!
Good Gracious! God Is Mine!
Go Graze Green Grass!
And showed The Wicked World
The Front of my Behind!

I need to Live with My Jesus
I need to Worship My God
I need a Gold Crown to Wear in Glory
Where I'll spend enjoy Eternity 
Eternity with My Lord as My Eternal Reward!


I AM THE SALT OF THE EARTH!

I WILL NOT BE TURNED INTO SALT!

I WILL NOT LOOK BACK AT THE WORLD
