READY….AIM…(#5 IN A SERIES)

WAITING FOR THE CHAPLAIN

(Tune: “BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES”)

Waiting for the Chaplain,

Do not want to miss her…

Like I did already

When I took a walk!

It’s nearly time for

Her to be coming…

I need some Protestant

Spiritual talk!

Evangelism

This Chaplain’s focus,

When will she take

Time listening to me?

Reading some Scripture,

Getting me prayed for…

When is she coming

Or will she call me?

Don’t have her number

Or time of visit,

Filling the card up

With my comments terse…

She isn’t coming

Maybe she got lost,

Wish I could contact

Her–things are getting worse!

Then at the last minute

The night before I went home,

Chaplain arrives to

See me finally…

With her agenda

My say was limited,

She moved on to others

Evangelistically!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
