Wandering One

Wandering One
Seeking shelter from confusion and fear

Where are you going?
What do you long for?
Whom do you trust?

Come, Seeker. Come with me
I will show you the way home

I know the Way because He has found me
Found me when I was the Wandering One
He has washed me
Washed me in His soul-cleansing blood
Washed me and carried me home

Come, Seeker. Come with me
There is no other place
Come, find shelter here
Rest here now, in the shadow of the cross
Let its shade protect you from the scorching heat
The scorching heat of your sin and shame
Lay it down
Lay it all down

Come, Seeker. Come, Sinner
There is room at the table for you
Eat freely of the Bread of Life,
Broken for you
No. No, dear one
You are not enough
It is okay
Christ is Enough.
You must feast on Him
Partake in His suffering
He suffered for you
Partake in His dying
He died for you
YOU!

Come, Seeker. Come, Sinner
Come, Wandering One
Come home
Christ will give you a new name:
Beloved One.

 

 

 

About Julia

Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. My name is Julia. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, and most recently, a writer. Above all, I am a daughter of the King. I am constantly amazed at God's goodness in my life; undeserved and unlimited. Come sit and visit awhile. The teapot's always on the stove.
