Put the Phone Down Joseph

December 22, 2020



 

Put the phone down Joseph, infant Jesus crawls your floor.

Put the phone down Joseph, incarnation don’t ignore.

Put the phone down Joseph, fight against distracted worry.

Put the phone down Joseph, time is lost in fear and hurry.

 

Put the phone down Joseph, stop scrolling endless news.

Put the phone down Joseph, Rome is cruel to guiltless Jews.

Put the phone down Joseph, sorrows rise of Caesar’s reign.

Put the phone down Joseph, Pharisees betray again.

 

Put the phone down Joseph, do not try to get away.

Put the phone down Joseph, rest your heart and hear it pray.

Put the phone down Joseph, news of this world will keep.

Put the phone down Joseph, rock your baby Son to sleep.

 

Put the phone down Joseph, though you carry such great weight.

Put the phone down Joseph, this child is your true mandate.

Put the phone down Joseph, grow your heart and make His glad.

Put the phone down Joseph, your son needs a present dad.

  1. Oh my, Sooo good. Not surprising, as it comes from one of the biggest hearts I’ve encountered in my faith journey. May the Father father many through you, beginning with the ones currently on your knees, before He calls you home.

    Wow!!!! Yes!
