Reaching Still Today

As humble child, God came to earth;

the offspring of a virgin birth.

His condescension shows our worth.

 

*****

 

He looked ahead and saw our need. Yes, He saw you and I.

This God-man born at Bethlehem, His purpose was to die.

Oh, the depth and height of His love! It oft’ times makes me cry.

 

****

 

He is reaching still today

to those who have lost their way;

to hearts filled with deep dismay.

 

****

 

Pray for those so blind,

that they may soon find

Jesus, good and kind.

 

****

 

Souls with hope so dim

can be led to Him

and filled to the brim.

  1. Beautiful, Carol! Praise the Lord that His hand is still out-stretched and longing to bring His lost ones home.

    Have a Merry Christmas and a new year full of God’s rich blessings!

    Hi Scotti. Thank God He is still reaching after lost humanity. I hope you and your family have a beautiful Christmas and a very Happy New Year. 🙂

  2. Carol,
    Finally, I’m on vacation from teaching my home school . . . and I could catch up on your blogging! I think I had to go all the way back to your pictures of Hawaii to get up to speed. As always, I am amazed at your poetic words (lava flows like miles of brownies . . .) and your Christmas baking! Wish we were there to eat some of those goodies! Thrilled to see your church built in more ways than one!
    Love,
    Kristin
