IRREVOCABLY HIS

Dread of the bed when I fear that I

Cannot sleep as the night before.

Just why this dread?  Should we analyze

Like, projecting the score?

.

.

The thoughts so vital, why I cannot sleep?

Cannot lay them aside until morn!

Challenge my thinking.  Dare me to stop,

Like, bare-footing through the corn!

.

.

Stalks over my head!  Cannot see the end

Of the row that I am in!

But I know there’s an end so why concern,

Contingency to begin.

.

.

There is a beginning and life goes on!

After death in the Spirit.

Real life after death, Spirit eternal!

Irrevocably in it!

.

 .

Imagine this, so long gone will meet

In that happy paradise.

Sure, some may surprise but we will not contest

When they accepted Christ.

.

.

Deliberate with me, one thief on a cross

Next to The Christ that day.

In shear agony, suffering so long!

Is a price they had to pay!

.

.

Yes, His death for ‘our’ sins.  He had to do!

He took there for all!

A thief’s dying request, “Remember me!”

Christs’ answer?  To rise or fall!

.

.

This day with me Paradise fair.

No time to make restitution!

Just, “remember me” like, already there!

Sure, died for the man’s condition!

.

.

And that is why He died, no questions asked

From that thief, He died to save!

Just, “remember me” but a heart-felt cry!

Irrevocably  saved!

.

.

That is why He died!  Why He came!

To die for sinful people.

Then why elaborate on that church with its

Sky-scraping steeple?

.

.

It is personal!  A Spirit decision heard

It before, line upon line!

I am not my own, belong to JESUS!

Make me irrevocably thine!

.
