Jesus Skinned His Knees for Me

Jesus Skinned His Knees for Me

I tripped on a step in church today,
It took me by surprise.
I fell to the floor with lightning speed
Quickly I did rise.

I skinned my knee and then it started,
The throbbing and the pain.
I sat there thinking how it hurt
But didn't Jesus experience the same?

The road to Calvary was long,
He traveled it for me.
The cross was heavy as He fell
And willingly skinned His knees.

Thank you God, I see it now,
I thought I understood.
I'm thankful for this lesson, small,
It all was meant for good.

Author's note: I believe some things that happen to us are for our good and God's glory. Even if it hurts. Ouch! It sure made me think.

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
