Seeking a Cure but Looking in the Wrong Direction

Seeking a cure but looking in the wrong direction,

He was a man who faced a ton of rejection

And clearly required a major course correction,

For his entire life’s routine was up for reelection.

 

He decided to go with the flow. It was the only way

For him to get his miracle. He thought, “I will obey.”

They said, “Timing is everything; you must get in the groove.

If you wish to be healed, my friend, then you had better move.”

 

He saw the healing line was long. If he could not butt in,

Then once again he would be forced to take it on the chin.

Although it wasn’t fair because he couldn’t move that fast,

He knew that once he got his healing he would have a blast.

 

Seeking a cure but looking in the wrong direction,

He was a man who faced a ton of rejection

And clearly required a major course correction,

For his entire life’s routine was up for reelection.

 

And so, he did his very best to find somebody kind

To move him to the number one position where he’d find

The perfect place to enter in and catch a magic wave

Of miracle vibrations that would make his limbs behave.

 

Then every part of him would be made whole. He’d walk for sure.

Yet someone always beat him to the punch. He found no cure.

Days turned into weeks, then months. The years became a blur.

And still he languished there. How much longer must he endure?

 

Seeking a cure but looking in the wrong direction,

He was a man who faced a ton of rejection

And clearly required a major course correction.

But as alone as he felt, he could not escape detection.

 

When Jesus came along, he thought he’d finally found a tool

In the form of two strong arms to throw him in the pool.

Instead, the Master told him to pick up his bed and walk.

The man was made whole right away and folks began to talk.

 

The crippled man did not require a pool to be made well.

He didn’t have to wade through crowds or ring somebody’s bell.

One word from Jesus was enough to heal him through and through.

And I believe He wants to do the same for me and you.

 

That’s because we’ve all jumped in the pool of wrong direction,

But Jesus took our punishment and suffered our rejection.

He wants to give each one of us a major course correction.

 

For, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6)

Story found in the gospel of John chapter 5
