Encouraging Words

Heb. 10:25 “... let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Lost and Found

by Lawrence Peter Medici

While traveling within my mind,
I stopped to see what I could find,
In a place called “Lost and Found,”
Where lives lay scattered all around.

Just as I entered through the gate,
I saw the Section labeled “Hate,”
Where people who are sad and lost,
Pay in fear the highest cost.

And down the road, to my dismay,
I saw the games that people play,
No longer needed by those few,
Who know what greed and lies can do.

Then to the right, I saw the sign:
“BROKEN HEARTS,” and I saw mine,
But on it was a tag marked “CLAIMED!”
And Jesus was the buyer named.

I picked my heart up off the ground,
And heard it sing the sweetest sound,
So folks could hear from miles around,
“I once was Lost, but now I’m Found!”
