The rustling in the trees

The birds excitement mounts

The plants lift up their leaves to announce

The coming of the King

       King Jesus,

       King Jesus

       Is HERE!

The white clouds cushion each step

As the King comes for those who heard the shepherd’s CALL

In His Presence love falls

In excitement they shout, King Jesus, King Jesus is HERE!

     They bow to the one who cared enough

To come from heaven to earth to save

and pay a debt they couldn’t repay

A whispered silence crescendos to majestic heights

        King Jesus, King Jesus Is HERE!

   Now heaven’s hall was finally complete

With ALL who had called Jesus Lord of Lords

Each person took their rightful place

As King Jesus walked through that majestic hall

welcoming each one

They then cried King Jesus, King Jesus Came for Us!

I am a novice writer and painter who loves to be creative. I love singing but can't sing without a hymnal, except for children's songs. I love to make up my own songs and love the old hymns. I love to garden and got that love from my Mom and Dad who taught be everything I know from planting to harvesting to canning. I'm happy gardening, walking with my pug, JD Sir Winston Churchill, painting, and crafting. I love to spend Saturday's sitting in my rocker going through a bible study. I love working with elementary school aged children and seeing them use their creative gifts. I have taught Sunday school for a number of years and taught in the public schools for 18 years. I might say I'm retired but I spend most of my time subbing and enjoy it immensely. The kids spark my own creativeness.

8 thoughts on “KING JESUS

  1. Rena, nice poem to still the mind and reflect on Jesus and His return to earth and hopefully to the daily lives of many that may have missed their path.
    I was reading Psalm 41:1-4 in a thoughtful way this am following the reading of poem and my heart blanketed these words from my ❤️
    “The skies are gray
    The 💕 hearts are dark
    The mind is torn
    The result is -0
    A divided mind
    Receives only from the 🖤”
    James 1:6-8

    The study from this Psalm challenged me to think long and hard about what keeps the poor down and work to help them. Which brings me full ⭕️ in our Beatitude studies, blessed, happy are the merciful. Ps 41:1 instructs us to have regard for the weak and the Lord will deliver them in times of trouble.

    What about ‘Stormy Daniels’ and her story as told on 60 mins just last night? A beautiful lady with a young child very weak compared to the billions and powers of this 🌎….Do I laugh, scorn and blow away like a withered leaf? Or, do I search my ❤️ How to help those in need? Do I want Psalm 41, verses 3-4 to be my reward?

    Rena’s poem says, “ They bow to the one who cared enough…To come from heaven to earth to save and pay a debt they couldn’t repay…”

    Let us pray and blanket in our hearts those in need. Thank you for listening to my secret longing for those in need.

    1. “Let us pray and blanket those in need”

      So much need, so many helping and praying voices, so much serving in love.
      As I walked the halls of a rehab facility, their was so much need, it made you want to cry. The ones we talked with seemed happy to hear us speak a kind and caring word or to note their efforts to move as it looked like a painful ordeal. The woman we went to see couldn’t speak and had had brain surgery with a stroke during the surgery. She only could speak with her eyes and her husband stood by her side since November 1 not hearing I love you . He spoke of his journey through this and he weld up in tears. The last woman I spoke of was not poor in spirit, she and her husband cherished every prayer which is their only hope. If I could have stayed I would have prayed for all, each individually. I did not know their situation but their was no one visiting them when I was there.

      What about the orphans who have no homes, or the families dealing with opioid or other addictions, or pregnant women who making a decision to abort or not.

  2. The images of your poem, Rena, brought to mind a verse from the hymn, “This is My Father’s World” which says:
    “All nature sings, and round me rings The music of the spheres.”
    And your poem words, “King Jesus, King Jesus Is HERE” reminds me of a portion of the Lord’s prayer when we ask, “your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…”

  3. Rena your poem causes one to think on that day when our Lord will return. The Bible is certainly clear about His return……..”Matthew 24:36 ‘But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

    42 ‘Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”🙏

    1. Reflecting on more of God’s Word………🙏

      “John 14 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)

      Jesus comforts his disciples
      14 ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.’

      Jesus the way to the Father
      5 Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’

      6 Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.’”

      1. I have been reading Randy Alcorn’s book on heaven for kids. He has an adult book on heaven but he has simplified the scriptural version of heaven for kids in a very teachable way.

        Tammy’s post starts your journey to want to know more about eternity and heaven. As Thomas asked in above scripture, “so how can we know the way.?”

    2. 44 So you must be ready ……
      I’m studying Roman’s in Bible Study Fellowship. One of the questions came from Roman’s 13: 11-12 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. so let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. In the children’s lesson at BSF I’ll be teaching on being ready for Jesus’s return and how we need to let our light shine for Jesus and then we’ll sing, This Little Light of Mine, I’m going to let it shine…
      I’ll end with “Go tell about Jesus everywhere you go.”
