He took the little ones on His knee, and blessed them Even me The very Kingdom of Heaven belongs to, ‘Such as these’, He said He talked of seeds and soil, sheep and shepherds, and the wandering soul Revealing His heart to seek them, that none may perish - that was His goal He spoke of bandits and bandages, sickness and death But the wounds he speaks about, only His wounds could heal It was His blood, not mine, that was shed He talked in riddles but truths so deep they were hidden from those who would not know - the hard in heart - the proud But to all who are meek and lowly, and simple as a child - He will reveal himself And He talks of mercy and forgiveness He talks of love So high was His calling, so deep was this love, He reached down and rescued Even me Petrina Kent April 2019
I wrote this poem and immediately doubted it, but I think it holds a powerful truth.
And it’s sinking in. As a four year old he took me on his knee as it were and I followed Him. Simply. Trusting. I submit to this simplicity of heart even though I long to be deep and profound, intellectual and strong. This is as he made me, yet within me he placed the Kingdom of Heaven! Yes.
Now that is profound.
That is deep.
And, that is strong.
And I believe his purposes are being worked through that.
