Ready or Not, Here He Comes!

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Am I living daily
With this thought fresh in mind:
If Jesus came back right now,
What would He, indeed, find?
 
Would He be pleased to find me
Down on my knees in prayer?
Or would I be caught up in
Some anxious thought or care?
 
Would He find my hands busy
At tasks that bless His name,
Instead of one more round of
My favorite, mindless game?
 
And would He find my mind fixed
And dwelling on His love?
Or would it be myself that
He’d find me thinking of?
 
He promised that He’d come back;
It could be any day.
What am I doing right now?
He could find me that way…
 
“Watch therefore,
for you know neither the day nor the hour
in which the Son of Man is coming.”
Matthew 25:13 NKJV
