Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 11/18/2012

Head on over to Proverbial Thought for your daily dose of wisdom!

It might be hard to guess (*sarcasm*), but the poem today was written during a period in my life when I was coming back to God and is based on the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

It is amazing to think that God not only waits on us to come to Him, but He runs after us to hold us in His arms.

embraced me

i ran away
was stolen from You
by my choices
by my life
by the one who could
me

yet

       as i ran back to You
You ran up to me
You sought me the whole time
not waiting for me
to come back
and when we met
Your eyes filled with Love
Your voice filled with gratitude
that i came home
but most importantly
You embraced me
took me as i was
Your arms were filled
with me

You never want to let me go

Taken from deeper words of God from a simple man of God by daniel m  klem, page 202.
