Unemployed Jesus

Jesus was unemployed
So he had lots of time to pray
If he had a job like me
He’d have a busier day

He could spend a lot of time
Bending down in regular prayers
He had no mortgage due
No earthbound heavy cares

He could lay in bed ‘til late
Take a nap mid-afternoon
He could tell the world to wait
When delayed say ‘I’ll be there soon’

Yes the Savior had much time
Seems too much time was on his hands
If I make his agenda mine
I will begin to understand

It is not the things I do
Not the jobs and busy tasks
It’s being close to Him
Is all my Father asks

John 11:21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

Mt 14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
