Yours for the Journey

unknown

I chose you before the foundation of the world

I formed your inward parts

I knit you together in your mother’s womb

I called you

I heard your call

I saved you

I delivered you

I forgave your sins

I washed you clean

I forgot your sins

 

I placed you into me

I placed me into you

I gave you my Holy Spirit

I will not give you anything more than you can handle

when you rely on me

I am yours; you are mine

 

I want you to walk alongside others

as I walk alongside you

I want you to talk as I talk

listen as I listen

I want you to see me in the least of these

and touch me

and bring me cups of cold water

 

I want you to love as I have loved

forgive as I have forgiven

be merciful as I have shown mercy

give as I have given

I want you to be a peacemaker

But I don’t want you to judge anyone

(I will do that)

 

I want you to take what I whisper in your ear

and shout it from the rooftops

I want you to teach everyone what I have taught you

And baptize everyone in my name

 

You will fall; you will get up

You will suffer as I have

But I will never leave you or forsake you

For I am with you always

even to the end of the age

 

You will die; you will rise again

You will meet me in the air

And I will take you to live with me forever

in a place that I have prepared for you

 

Until then, I remain

Yours for the Journey,

— Jesus
