My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free:

The Selection

at the end
when temporal ends
and eternity begins
when judgement
has to be made for
those who
have not encountered Me
having kept their hearts
to themselves without
any thought of Me
many have questioned
what will happen to
these wayward souls
opinions one way
or the other are surmised
but no one really knows
except Me
I continually offer
New Life
Grace to repent and
turn to Me
time runs out
no one knows the
day or the hour
except Me
hoping for a
change of heart
My Love is
never held back
I allow difficult
circumstances  to
present opportunities for
coming Home but
some never accept
what am I to do?
it comes down to
one question for
each to answer
which brings each
face to face
with their own choice of
how they have already
determined for themselves
eternity's reward
by asking:
throughout your life
whom have you
freely chosen to
love and adore?
who was always first
in your heart?
for now and eternity
I shall permit you to
possess what you have
always selected to be
your all-
alone in the darkness
but then again
since you are reading this-
there is still time...

-Who is first in your life?
-How do you show that?
-What needs to change in your life to grow in holiness?
-Where can you get support to change?
-How can you help those close to you to put Jesus first?
-How can you love Jesus more openly?
