Just an ordinary day, a poem.
Are you lonely tonight?
Some greet you with what’s new? You reply,
same old thing, with a sigh.
Some talk of pain and sorrow,
little hope for tomorrow.
The beggar sits there with a face of despair.
As you pass by, his eyes say, do you care?
Jesus, a man of sorrows was he, he came to heal
the broken hearted you and me.
He gave a gift to a blind man to see,
Rebuked the self-righteous Pharisee.
A woman of the streets, her tears washed his feet.
She the Pharisees did despise. They said: “shame on him”,
how can he look in her eyes.
Jesus said, how can you say such?
Those forgiven many sins, love much.
This ordinary day dear friend, I pray Jesus has come your way.
He sees your hurt and pain and asks, can I visit you again?
I saw you in your despair, I want to help you, I care.
He went to a party many years ago, tax collectors and sinners
were there, I know.
He said they like you, needed me, this I knew.
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, *
a real man, what were you thinking?
Not a wine bibber or gluten as the wicked say,
he is the perfect man, sinless, by the way!
Jesus loves the broken and lonely, out of many, he has come for you only.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest Matthew 11:28 NASB.
His ways are not our ways, He chooses a beggar, a harlot, rejects a King and a Pharisee.
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong 1-Corinthians 1:27 NASB.
*The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Luke 7:34 NASB.
