No Excuses

There's no excuse for things I've done

that you may (or not) have seen,

and there's no-where I might run

to flee the man that I have been,

who  favoured cruelty and dim sloth

over faith and diligence,

who counted industry as loss,

and sits now in the deep silence

of a place so far from God

and far from lost and absent friends,

waiting only for the rod,

for that is how this journey ends...

but Lo! He comes to sit with me,

His nail-pierced hand rests on my knee.

Yep, five minutes, for Five Minute Friday, keyword excuse.

  1. Some of my best prayers are felt when simply I envision Jesus sitting next to me in the silence.
    I'm so happy to see your post this morning. Sending love and prayers, as always

    1. Karen, yes, exactly...He is there.

      Thank you so much for the [prayers; love back!

  2. Amen, Andrew. We are never, ever alone ...

    Praise God.

    1. Linda, it's such a comfort, never to be alone!
