Stunning Invitation

Took me by surprise

The realization

You really did care

Didn’t just send me on my way.

The tests no longer lonely

Though they still come.

The road no longer pointless

The future without fear.

So what has happened

Changing it all?

Took a long look

At a kind man on a Cross

In the jeering crowd

My face appeared.

But on the other side

Of an empty tomb

He came to me

He really did.

Said that He and the Father

Had known me

Had loved me

From before ever I was.

I took Him up

On the stunning invitation.
