Just a tiny step

1. Christ is just
A tiny step away.

2. He lives within us all,
And waits, each day,

3. For us to talk with him
In constant prayer,

4. Seek him in all,
And find him everywhere.

5. Christ is just
A tiny step away.

6. He lives within us all,
And waits, each day,

7. For us to hear his voice,
To learn, and grow,

8. Then love him in others,
Everywhere we go.

  • This is so true Ruth, our Lord and His Father are only one step away. We like the prodigal must make the first move, each day seeking our Father. Thank you for your valuable gift of poetry and the encouragement it brings, may you know His blessings today.

    • Thank you so much, Alan. It was my turn at the hospital this am – to plan for a lymph node biopsy soon. John isn’t very well, but we are coping fine. Many thanks for your blessings.
