    Default FINALLY TOLD

    I MET YOU LONG AGO.
    YOU TOLD ME THEN YOU KNEW THE LORD.
    THEN TALKED OF THINGS THAT WERE NOT OF HIM.
    I TRIED TO TELL YOU time and AGAIN
    THAT WAS NOT THE WAY OF HEAVEN.
    YOU OVERRULED. iT IS YOUR WAY TO
    GET THE LAST WORD IN.
    ONE MORE THING TO SAY.
    I LOVED YOU SO I JUST LISTENED

    until today.

    Today I stopped and poured out salt
    leaving an open wound in trepidation

    You ignored my pleas.
    ignored the warnings.

    I finally let go.
    Feelings of foreboding

    My thoughts ran wild,
    "She may never speak to me again"
    "Too much salt"
    "Did I let any light in?"

    God said quietly only one thing.
    "I'm so glad you finally told her".

    A parable i once read went something like this:

    If you saw a man standing on a ledge, would you try to save his life?
    What if you saw a man on the verge of hell? Is there a difference?
    Don't walk by and cringe or laugh or point or smile.
    Walk up to them and talk awhile.

    They may need you more than you could ever know.

    love this. Much wisdom.
    Php 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.


    Php 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
