Why Was He Here ?

I have come around to thinking
what Jesus was meant to do
He wasn’t put on earth
just to die for me and you.

He was put here so he would know
what the women and men
Would have to one day go through.
Then He would be coming back again.

He was put upon the earth to understand
That He was the one who was now in command
He will hold you in his arms
And keep you from all alarms.

He wanted to do good while he was still here
No matter what he did it was always sincere
He knew that he would die upon the cross
And that it would be our great loss.

Not having Him among us is not bad
Although sometimes it makes me sad
Now He knows I take faith in his word
Even if it’s read and not just heard.

My God is near to me
And sometimes he lets me see
Just a little glimpse at Heaven
So I know that’s where I want to be.

He knew He wouldn’t be here in person
So he sent us the Holy Ghost
To be our companion and mentor
When we needed him the most.

For that I am truly grateful
So I try to be most faithful
For those who don’t know God
They better find Him or they will be flawed.

You need to get your mind right with Him
So He can fill your life to the brim
And you can sing His hymn
While you are waiting for him.

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.
