When Things are NOT What They Seem
Text: Matthew 9:37-38
He (Jesus) said to His disciples: "The harvest is so great, but the works are so few. So pray to the Lord Who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send out more workers for His field." New Living Testament
There once was a man from a town
Who married a girl from the city
She thought it was love, but he didn't know how
On his mind was babysitting!
She choked at the nights spent alone
She gagged on the smell when he's home
Alcohol steeped, but she didn't peep
She was raised in a no-fly zone.
She decided to try Alanon
Used for when tied to a drinker
He brought home a gun & put to her head
He really belonged in the clinker.
She left the next day for a (Woman's) Shelter
Her body and one case of clothes
Picked up at a store, she could not face more
Heart froze and mind full of lows.
She stayed there a week, maybe more
Her child with family and friends
She found an apartment close to her job
While he struggled to make amends.
He tried an AA meeting
& told her he was surprised
It's not what I thought, they showed me a lot
& now he thought he was wise.
He begged her come home
She countered . Be mine?
He answer the oath - how do I know?
I just live one day at a time.
Things are not as they seem
She told him Jesus the same
Oh, try Him and see, what you can be
He refused and that is a shame.
What think YOU, my friend?
Since this life will end . . .
Try thinking ahead, don't wait until death
The decision is now, do you not comprehend?
The moral of the story is things are not always what they seem. Just as the husband misunderstood the purpose of AA . . many think Christianity is a crutch or the Bible is not true. But . . God so loved the world . . . and Jesus died for you. (John 3:16)
For those who have already tasted of the Normal Christian Life . . . pray for workers . . or will YOU be a worker for Jesus?
