Places Where I’ve Been

I have not been to Israel

Or seen its Holy sites

Nor to the Sea of Galilee

Where Christ taught wrong from right

But His voice that calmed the storm

Has spoken in my mind

And those hands that healed the sick

Have gently taken mine

Then He called me to Himself

And He Said this is the Way

Sins forgiven

Hope renewed

He walks with me today!

A Holy Land Tour

Though my wife and I have been blessed to travel a bit when we were younger, we have always wanted to see the Holy Land. These days most of our traveling outside of going to church revolves around the doctor, the gym and the grocery store and I am wondering if we will ever see more than just photographs. No boo-hooing going on here because I know that going to Jerusalem is inevitably on our Lord’s travel destination for us whether in this life or the next. With that thought in mind here is a little poem I wrote a couple of years back which I revised a bit and I pray it may bless your day:

 

The Places Where I’ve been

I have not been to Israel

Or seen its Holy sites

Nor to the Sea of Galilee

Where You taught us wrong from right

But Your voice that calmed the storm

Has spoken in my mind

And Your hands that healed the sick

Have gently taken mine

Then You called me to Yourself

And You Said You were The Way

Forgave my sin

Renewed my Hope

And walked with me today!
