You Didn't Notice I Wasn't There?

You Didn't Notice I Wasn't There?


I haven't been around.

 And you don't even know it.

You said you loved me.

 And can't even show it.


Remember the story of the

100 sheep, that Christ shared?

I'm a lost soul.  No one has

 even looked or cared.


You're so wrapped up into

 church and many "things."

No wonder why you "don't have

 the time for anything."


What does the parable of the

lost sheep mean to you?

What... For Christ' sake... 

Are you going to do?


Are you going to look for

 those of us left behind?

To be on a Godly mission. 

To seek, save and to find?


Are you thankful that Jesus

 left the 99 to seek you out?

Being a part of God's family is

what the cross is about.


To seek and save...  Must be

your godly intention.

So that the lost may know of

God's plan of redemption!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
