In His Time…

…there is perfect peace.

Christ Expressed

3 Comments

Not merely in the words you say,
Not only in your deeds confessed,
But in the most unconscious way
Is Christ expressed.

For me ’twas not the truth you taught,
To you so clear, to me so dim;
But when you came to me you brought
A sense of Him.

And from your eyes He beckons me,
And from your heart His love is shed,
Till I lose sight of you and see
The Christ instead.

It’s not too often I meet people that I can say this about, but I can honestly say this poem about my precious Pastor and his wife. Bro. & Sis. Hurst, I’m so glad you are in our lives and I love you and pray for you every day. After all, you watch for our souls.

Hebrews 13:17 – “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”

  2. That’s a great poem to use to give honor to your pastor and his wife. I know that faithful, loyal people fill a pastor’s heart with great joy, so I’m sure you have been a blessing to Bro. and Sis. Hurst as well. God bless you.

    Love,
