Jesus

Week 1                                                                                                                           Stay Awake

On Matthew 16:27

                Come In Glory

What will I say when He comes and asks me?
What will be first on my mind?
How will I know the answer of me,
after seeking the who of He these years.
Some days I know Him intimately, and
Some days I forget.
Like voices of ones gone home,
I know His voice when I hear it,
and yet I often listen no more.
I know Him so humble.
Will I recognize Him in His glory?
Today I prepare my words.
But mostly I will try to listen,
breathing softly, mind quiet.
Emmanuel!

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
