This afternoon I dug into the Pilgrim Scribblings archives and pulled out this poem. Walking alone with Jesus can change your perspective, your day and your lifetime. Try it!
No one in the forest
But my Lord and me;
Walking in the coolness
'Neath the shady trees.
Hand in hand with Jesus
As we walk along;
Troubled when I started
Now I have a song.
Lonely, tired, discouraged
Are you that today?
Take a walk with Jesus
On the narrow way.
Let His arms enfold you
As you journey home;
He will guide you safely
Never more to roam.
He's the Gentle Shepherd
You, the wand'ring lamb;
Walking home with Jesus
He's the great "I AM"!

LOVED the ending on that poem -- He's the GREAT - I AM -ReplyDelete
when first saved , staying in a flop house for short while, I couldn't wait to get up into my little room and pray -- God's presence was so real -- be nice to renew our "FIRST LOVE" --
There is lots of gold in your archives.
I have read so many of your poems and I think that you should collect them all up and put them into s book!!
This poem almost makes me think of that great hymn that George Beverly Shea used to sing so well, "I Come To The Garden Alone"
"I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet that the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I'd stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me is falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None ever has ever known.
Can't you just see the similarity Poet David Fisher?
