Poem - Highways & Byways

Updated: Mar 18

By Tim Arnott 2018 - From the picture of a tractor he felt God gave him at the baptismal service at the Riverside

I see this tractor moving forward Along a defined clear track It's got no reverse gear So there's no looking back

And attached to the cab are these headlights Shining and searching around Looking in all directions Light piercing the darkest ground

And as the light shines into the highways There are harvesting tools either side They're part of this beautiful tractor Reaching the byways far and wide

For there's a harvest time beginning Listen and look all around There's a sound of God's kingdom advancing A time when many lost will be found

A church stepping in to heaven’s calling Concerned with nothing but the ways of the King Surrendered and abandoned to the Father Aligned with his kingdom in everything

For he's sending us into fields so ready Each one of us strategically placed In the highways and the byways of our nation Overflowing with his love and grace

And there's something incredible about this tractor Unseen by many around But it's crucial to heaven’s purposes Reaching the darkest places of our town

And it's begun and it's now God has spoken A call again to partner with him A fresh start, a fresh season, an opportunity To give him again our everything
