How long, before I see your face? A poem

How long, before I see your face?

In the night I was looking for you,

And I couldn’t find you.

I was searching everywhere,

And you were nowhere to be found.

I was longing for you,

Desperate for you…

I wanted to see you,

To bow at your feet and adore you!

I wanted to go into your holy place

To worship you,

But you were nowhere to be found…

You seemed far away,

Yet I knew you were near.

Then I remembered:

You are within me Lord!

I long for you so much!

I weep and yearn for your presence,

Where I shall find such joy and peace.

I love you so much!

I cry out to you Lord!

How long – before I see your face?

  1. If you are longing and yearning to follow Jesus, you should appreciate this poem.

    The message of The 11 (“The narrow gate”)

    “The eleven disciples went to Galilee”
    “Where Jesus had told them to go”
    They heard His voice and obeyed His will
    Despite uncertainty down below

    Jesus spoke to them at length
    He wasn’t really a Tweeter
    Only 3 of them wrote Scripture
    Matthew John and Peter

    “Feed my sheep” said Jesus, for though
    “Heaven and earth will pass away”
    I have the words of eternal life and
    “My words will never pass away”

    “Enter through the narrow gate”
    The voice of Jesus through the eleven
    Believe in Jesus “through their message”
    And “eat from the tree of life” in heaven

    Jesus commissioned the eleven
    With “everything I have commanded you”
    “Teaching THEM to obey” Jesus
    And “THEM” means me and you !

    “The command given by our Lord and Savior”
    Is not a Pharisee speaking alone
    It came rather “through your apostles”
    Matthew Peter and John

    If a Pharisee boasts proudly
    Those men added nothing to my message
    He doesn’t speak for Jesus
    His words are nothing more than garbage

    All “quotes” in “quotation marks” are from the writings of the Apostles Matthew John and Peter in the Bible, mostly the “Red Letter” words of Jesus. [Matthew, John, Revelation, 2 Peter – NIV]
