Not Just Yet, Lord

Updated on April 29, 2013

Not Just Yet,Lord

Years ago when I was oh,so young

A Stranger came asking for my heart,

But the world was full of attractions

And I wanted to be free to take my part.

"Not just yet,Lord,"was what I quickly said,

So He sadly left me by myself that day.

But I didn't mind ,the world to me was new.

I was able to explore it ,unhampered any way.

His voice was still,I heard nothing for years,

One day He came with the same sweet plea.

"But not just yet ,Lord ,I'll just wait awhile

There are still so many things to do ,to see."

So I saw the world, the appealing attractions,

But I finally grew tired of all the worldly strife ,

Then I remembered Jesus, the place He offered,

I'm ready now to surrender to Him my life.

Well ,here I am Jesus ,ready to do your will,

I've tried the world but now I am all alone.

Come now and enter with Your sweet peace.

Jesus?Jesus,where are You?Jesus has gone!

Clara Kish


Sometimes we think that we can put off

accepting Jesus when He calls us to

come to Him, Maybe He will come back

to implore us to come with Him but He

does not have to give us any more

chances to accept Him, He can just

bypass us and go to someone who is

ready and willing to live for Him.He

has such a short time left to get all of

those willing to surrender their lives

to Him and will follow Him all the days

of their life.What a terrible thought

that we will never get to Heaven or

see many of our loved ones who

already gone before us, they will

be looking for a face up there that

they will never see.It doesn't have

to end this way,Today is the day to

repent and ask Jesus to forgive you !

      Hello Jackie, I wrote an answer last night but I guess it wiped off of here that happens quite a lot any more with this computer. I have another one on the way and I hope I can make it work , it takes me so long to learn new things ,I got a new phone and still trying to figure it all out.Thank you for your comment and I don't know how much good these poems are doing, Only God knows, He gives me the ideas so they should help getting people to think of what is coming and to be ready .it is good to hear from you . Clara

      Thank you ,Jackie , thank you for your comments, I do not know how much good I am doing on here with these poems. I hoped to touch hearts with them but I do not if anyone has been under conviction because of them . God gives me the poems and I am sure He will know if they are reaching people's hearts. More people seem to be reading them than before , I am sure time is drawing closer to that day.

      Yes I believe it too on that short time. It is thrilling for those of us ready except for the many we know are not ready and feel to accept Jesus means giving up their happiness, and if they only knew! God bless your writings I am sure they do good.

      Thank You ,Blossom, for your comment.We don't want Jesus to ever disappear because He may not come back after so many times of being

      turned away.We would be completely lost and what a sad state that would be. Love,Clara

      It's just as well for us that Jesus never disappears, but is always ready to hear us when we call. Love your poem.

      Hello Karen , Thanks for your comment, yes ,this was written a long while ago and I never tried to do anything with a lot of these until now . I guess maybe there was a reason for that.I never really thought that maybe I was supposed to use them later. I tried to put one on the other night but no matter what I used for a title it would not work ,If it goes through the next time you will know why I had trouble getting it on . Love, Clara

      Hello Faith, I know people that once were saved but have gone back to their old ways, if there was just some way to really touch their hearts again, There will be many brokenhearted ones left behind when they pass on, but how do you really get to them ? I am not very good at talking to people that is why I put my heart in these poems , hoping to be able to reach some of them. Thanks for you nice comments .Love, Clara

      Hello Clara,

      Written long ago but profound in its publishing today. Clara, this is how it is when it is of the Holy Spirit. It does not lose its 'salt' - the flavour is still strong. May many heed the call. God Bless.

      Sadly, I know of many, who tell Him, "not just yet," as they are not ready, but little do they know, there may not even be a tomorrow.

      Profound write! Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
