Maybe It’s You!

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Jesus said He’s coming back;
So far, it’s not come true.
“So what’s He waiting for?” you ask.
Perhaps, my friend, it’s you!
He isn’t wanting anyone
To perish, in the end.
But He won’t force Himself on you.
It is your choice, my friend.
And in His mercy He is waiting;
But, my friend, how long?
You’ve heard His voice; You’ve seen His grace.
His call to you is strong.
He’s anxious to come claim His bride.
It’s what He longs to do.
But He’s still waiting for someone.
My friend…maybe it’s you!
“They will say, ‘Where is this ‘coming’ he promised?
Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on
as it has since the beginning of creation.’
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise,
as some understand slowness.
Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:4,9 NIV
