Ready

I’m getting a little tired of the world as it is today
I’m ready for Jesus to come back and run things His way.
I know it will be so much better than it is now
The reason I know is He gave us His vow.

I know He will come back when His time is right
But I am impatient to see Him, maybe tonight?
No one knows exactly when that will be
But the sooner the better as far as I can see

God has given us some good things to enjoy
Until He returns bringing His joy,
Things of this world don’t mean much to me
I can take it or leave it that’s up to me.

Things seem to get worse with each passing day
Lord help me to know exactly what I should say,
I know there are things that I don’t understand
But I really expect its part of Your grand plan.

We are merely mortals trying to understand
A power so much greater than anything on land,
It’s hard to explain sometimes to those who do not know
That You are the very best hope for a world full of woe.

Lord, when you call me to come home
I want you to know I will never roam,
I’m ready when you call me to Heaven above
Where I know your world is filled with your love.

Help me be a witness to those who need you most
And give me the opportunity to help be your host,
All I want to do God is glorify your name
So I can teach others how to do the same.

I want to spend my time left in your service
Not to make anyone nervous,
Just so they will know that time may be short
But you have provided the passport.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
