A Second Touch…a Poem by Funmi Adebayo

Why do you go
“Will I ever be made whole?”
When despite a touch from Me
You still see men
Like trees walking around?

Why do you keep
When I’m still busy
Working out
That very thing you wish?

Why do you go
When in your frantic search
Through the dark
You can’t trace Me?

Jesus …spit into the man’s eyes and placed his hands on him…(and) asked him, “Can you see anything?” The man looked up and said, “I see people. They look like trees walking around.” Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes a second time, and the man saw clearly. His sight was normal again. He could see everything clearly even at a distance.

Mark 8:23-25 (GW)

Whilst My sole desire
Is to hear your voice
Call out to Me-

And all My longing
Is to reach out
And touch you
Over and over
As often as I please…?

My word
Should be
Assurance enough…
For I rejoice over you
With singing!

Give thanks instead
Then ask for
Another touch… and yet another…
And you will be
Whole indeed
Beyond your wildest dreams…
