Lost Soul – a Poem

One of the great things about using WordPress as my blog host is the Blog Surfer and Tag Surfer options.  You can subscribe to other WordPress blogs or you can browse through WordPress blogs that use the same “tags” or topics you like to read about.  I browse through my blog surfer and tag surfer at least once a day and have come across some awesome blogs and some interesting posts.  While tag surfing today, I came across a post with a wonderful poem.  The author, Cathy gave me permission to post her poem here.  I pray that it will touch your spirit as it did mine and encourage each of us to share Jesus with everyone we meet, even when it seems like they aren’t listening.  Thanks Cathy for allowing me to share this with my readers.  Take care and God bless you all,

Lost Soul – A Poem

I wanted only good for you,

Of this you can be sure.

I shared God’s word, so you’d be saved,

My motive, it was pure.

* * *

Upset with me, because I told,

Of heaven, and a hell.

These are the words that Jesus said,

So this is what I tell.

* * *

There is a pain, deep in my heart,

It’s there most every day.

I’ve pled for years, I’m speechless now,

There’s nothing left to say.

* * *

An enemy, I have become,

Because of truth proclaimed.

Good news for all, the Gospel call,

I will not be ashamed.

* * *

Comfort and peace, salvation’s joy,

Could all be yours to keep.

But still you choose, to have blind eyes,

The Lord you will not seek.

* * *

Eternity, without the Lord,

Why is it you don’t fear?

Years, precious few, do swiftly pass,

As day of death draws near.

* * *

The Gospel call, it separates,

Both here, and when we die.

We leave behind, those dearly loved,

And to the Lord draw nigh.

* * *

I wanted only good for you,

There’s still no other goal.

Because the Lord has filled my heart,

With love for your lost soul.

* * *

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

John 3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

John 3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

John 3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

John 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
