Anything

by Kevin Mundstock

Well,  it had been a little time you see since I have picked up a pencil and tried to write a little poetry.

Ah, but this all came from a phone call one day when Barbra Cyrus asked in a very kind way.  Kevin, I would really like to put one of your poems in the church news letter and without a pause I asked her what would you like the poem to be about?  She said oh, it could be about anything.   I said anything hmm that is interesting let me see what I can do.

I started in my usual way first in thought then I prayed but I must admit nothing came in time except for Barbra’s word echoing in my mind, “It could be about anything”.

Hmmm is there anything I can put down on paper I thought out loud,
To lift someone’s spirit to make them feel proud.
Is there anything that I can say to stir up their soul to let God take total control.
Is there anything I can say that will heal and take their pain away.
Is there anything being done to bring man closer to God’s son.
Is there anything to help you see there is more to living than just reality.
Is there anything I can do to help you realize anything is a part of something too.
If anything is something?  Then how do we play out in the words below
Open up your mind and let your heart follow, then you will know.

And then I pictured my Savior on the cross and the two theives one soul saved one soul lost.  The lost soul mocking The Christ if  you are who they say you are save yourself and us too, if anything I don’t wanna die here so why do you.  The other thief knowing his place rebuked his partner in crime and found the Savior grace.  If anything just in the nick of time.  Anything could have happened that day.  He could have called down legions of Angels to carry him away.  Anything could have happened, the crowd could have figured out their loss but it wasn’t just anything that nailed our Savior to the cross.

I wanted to stop here but just incase someone does not understand.  We are the something and Jesus died to save all of man.  It wasn’t just anything it was something all part of God’s master plan.

So, I didn’t just write about anything however, it has played it’s part.  I wrote this about something or to someone I hope this rythem has impacted your heart.

hang in there because …. were gonna get there.

In Christian Love,
