Christ’s Return- My Aching Wait


Hello there again dear readers! I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to post articles for a few days this week… I may have to change the “one post per two days” practice of mine to ” a post per 3-4 days” as now I’m returning to my studies and I’m becoming a lot more busy than before. But I’ll never stop posting.. of course not! Oh, and I request all readers to take part in this poll:

I was planning on starting a series of related subjects this time, but I’ve decided to postpone that to the next time. Right now I’d like to share a poem I wrote a while ago. I wrote it with feelings deep from my heart so I thought I’d share it with my dear readers.

It’s a poem I wrote one day when I couldn’t stand the wait for Christ’s return. I was sitting outside, gazing at the sky, clouds floating by lazily…

I started thinking of how Jesus  Christ, the one I love most in this world, will someday come in one of those clouds to take us back home.. then I thought, “why does He take so

long?” My heart got filled with both the excitement of being taken to heaven someday in the rapture, and the feeling of loneliness as I wait and wait and wait.. and out of that chaos of feelings, this poem came to existence: Enjoy! 🙂

Your Return

When, my Lord, shall You return,
When , to calm my heart in burn?

For, ages, I have searched the skies,
And tears, I shed from aching eyes.

At every thunder roaring high, 
I hope to see the face of Thine.

At every lightning gleaming by,
I hope to meet You in the skies!

For, like a child away from home, 
And like a leaf amidst the storm,

I seek the path I lost, the way
That leads me home when I'm astray.
