The Rooster Crowed

Never thought
Never thought
I would be the one
Falling down
Caught in sin
Shamed by everyone
A disappointment
To One and all

Not losing faith
But I lost my way
My strength to stand
Seemed sapped away
Gave way to weakness
Gave in to fear
Let go of all
That I’d held so dear

And then, the rooster crowed!
And Jesus turned
And I remembered
His every word
He looked straight at me
Heart to broken heart
Could He use me now?
Had I gone too far?

Haunted by when the rooster crowed!
And Jesus turned
Then I remembered
His every word
He looked straight at me
Heart to broken heart
Could He use me now?
Had I gone too far?

Then He shared His plan with me
He revealed it graciously

He said, Feed My sheep
Your failure’s not the end
Feed My sheep
It’s you, I want to send
Feed My sheep
Show your love for Me
As I called you from the start
Come, follow Me!

He said, Feed My sheep
Your failure’s not the end
Feed My sheep
It’s you, I want to send
Feed My sheep
Show your love for Me
As I called you from the start
Come, follow Me!

Leave your failures in my hands
And come, follow Me!

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
