Sometimes I feel like people just want to shoot at me
just because they don't care to know what He means to me
There's so much happiness that they threw in the trash
because they looked at the wrapping paper and saw "From: Jesus" on the sticker
They took one look and decided He wasn't worth it
when really, He was all they needed to help them through their hurting
I watched them spit on Him so they could say they spit on me, too
I wanted to tell them to stop it, but He told me "Do as I do."
Even though they kicked Him, He loved them so much that He let them walk away
It was their choice and He respected it, even though it meant that He would be in pain to see them go
Sometimes I wonder why I have to be a walking target
but then I realize that He did the same for me so why should I be afraid of it?
Yes, it really hurts to know that someone you love would rather slap you than listen to you speak
and even though it makes me want to cry, I'll let them go, because I won't be able to change their minds
It's up to Jesus to do that in His own time
So what do I do?
I pray and act kind
just hoping someday that they'll accept Him and love Him like I've had the privilege to do for so many years
If you only knew... I wish I could tell you...
but some things are just too wonderful to put into words
Jesus is one of those things.
