For those who have difficulty in finding a Christian fellowship: My poem





I dedicate this little poem for our dear brothers and sisters in Christ who cannot find any fellowship under some difficult and painful circumstances. May our gracious Father encourage you this very day. In Jesus' name. Amen.


A tiny sheep.
A loving sheep.

crouching on the
bare ground, all alone.


Joyous laughter
cozy home
and evening meal out there.


Here I lay down,
on the bare ground,

under the evening sky.

――――

"My beloved sheep,
look up your eyes."

Lo,
here is a warm look.

The look which gazes upon you
 tenderly and mercifully.

"My child,
O my homeless child,

Raise up your eyes, and look on Me,
Look into my Heart, dear.

Here you shall find your home.
------Your eternal home."

    1. Amen. Thank you for your suggestion, Sanae. This is our joint wish and prayer that those who have been hurt in their previous church would be supported by His divine Hands. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  2. And might I add: there are also those who are isolated WITHIN their churches. This poem was beautiful and soothing. Our home is found in our Lord Jesus Christ, and He will take care of us, though we may be lonely and forsaken by those around us--yes! Thank you for the encouragement, Kinuko!

    1. Dear Jessica. Oh,yes, that's a hard point indeed--feeling isolated within their churches. This is my sincere prayer that our dear sisters who have felt this way would be strengthened and comforted today!
