“Did I not tell you that if you believed
you would see the glory of God?” 
 John 11:40

My Dad had the opportunity to speak at Woodmont Hills Church in the fall.  One thing he spoke about was John 11, the story of Lazarus’ death, and his sisters.  This poem is one of the fruits of his preparation. 

Mary and Martha
Their hope did not come
When they wanted Him to come
They were grieving and broken
Jesus disappointed them
He did not come when they called
He did come with a surprise
With power and love
He came to them right on time
To teach them new things of God
They knew He was their good Friend
They knew He was God
“Your brother will rise to life”
His presence revealed this truth
He wept when He saw Mary
He knew her name well
Yes, He knows your name
He also weeps for you now
He knows your story and your grief
He is here for you
He asked for Mary
She heard Martha whispering
“The teacher is calling you”
To come and see Him
He is calling you
Do you hear His whispering
His voice can be heard
Use both heart and mind
And focus on His story
