The Only Forgotten Son ~

The Only Forgotten Son ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

He wasn’t what they expected,
or what they thought He should be
and so they rejected . . .
what only their human eyes could see.

They couldn’t discern the promise,
for His appearance wasn’t kingly
and so they rejected . . .
what their hearts saw so unclearly.

They uprooted Him for fear,
He’d take the “Life from their tree”
and so they rejected . . .
the only one who would set them free.

They detested His lowliness,
a mere servant among the masses
and so they rejected . . .
the Messiah that rode in on an ass.

He once was despised by the crowds,
He is loathed by hoards today
now He is the Only Forgotten Son . . .
the world has turned away!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:2-3
King James Version

“For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
he hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.

He is despised and rejected of men
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

In The Wilderness of My Soul ~

In The Wilderness Of My Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, in the wilderness of my soul,
there are valleys deep and low
and sometimes I wander in them
not sure the direction I should go.

In my doubt, I meet with despair,
and my thoughts turn to giving up
for in my self-seeking efforts
I don’t see grace raised in Your cup.

In the wilderness of my soul,
there are mountains high and wide
and sometimes I tried to climb them
in the smugness of my pride.

In my own unwavering conceit,
with self-sufficiency in my stride
I can’t reach the mountaintop
without the Holy Spirit as my guide.

In the wilderness of my soul,
there is a path I must prepare
and make it a straightway
so that Your ways, I can declare.

There are a lot of thorns and thistles,
plenty of roadblocks and hurdles too
but, my sins I must get up and over
if I want to get close and near to You.

Lord, there’s a wilderness in my soul,
a vast land of empty spaces
and long roads for me to travel on
with plenty of rough places.

But, I know that I’m on the right path,
and in the end  ~  it will lead to You
for, I’m on the road paved with mercy
and Your  grace to help me through!

Luke 3:4
King James Version

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his
paths straight.”

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
