Lord, Send Me

A Chiffon Laced Gown

One day, in my mind's eye Jesus and I went for a walk together. What follows, is the poem inspiration titled, A Chiffon Laced Gown.

A chiffon laced gown and matching hat
With accessories
Was what I wore to meet the Lord
For we had a date at three

He was already there when I arrived
He was waiting patiently
He looked at me and whispered sweet
You look so lov-e-ly

But he wasn’t looking at my clothes
He was looking inside of me
And I heard him say “When I see the blood”
I will pass over thee

He gently took my hand in His
We walked along the path
That led into the garden
And then I heard Him ask

Do you know why I asked you here?
No, Lord, was my reply
Then I heard Him breathe a sigh
And tears came in His eyes

The hour is late there's no time to delay
Listen Beloved to all that I say
Proclaim this message loud and clear
To all who will listen to all who will hear

I am looking for children
Who are to themselves
Willing to die
To lay their ambitions, desires, aside

To bear in their bodies
The marks of the cross
Withstand the heat of the fire
As I burn off the dross

To count all their gains
As though they were loss
To stand true to my calling
Regardless of cost

Be willing to wait
For heaven's rewards
And even in dark times
Still call me Lord

It will not be easy
But with you I'll be
But I need you to say
Here I am Lord, send me!

May we as children of The Most High, reckon ourselves dead and alive unto Jesus Christ.

We are told in Galatians 2:20, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
