My Response to Christ by Raymond A. Foss
So, pilgrim, what is your response to Christ?
that is a hard question to answer, isn’t it
something to ponder, to lament, in answering
I turned my back, I walked away, I denied Him
for most of my life, though I knew He was there
I wanted my needs, my desires, my wants met
immediately, to be given by the world’s standards
what I needed was simple faith,
of the woman with hemorrhages, the widow
who gave her two coins, all she had, the foreigners,
who believed when the chosen did not
To turn my life over to him, to walk where
I am sent, to believe enough, to trust
Walking today, in a new life I didn’t imagine,
blessed in so many ways
thankful every day
for the gifts heaped upon me
means of grace
all around me
to share the words
He gives me, this is my response
