The Cross In My Pocket

I carry a Cross in my pocket
A simple reminder to me
Of the fact that I am a Christian
No matter where I may be.

This little Cross is not magic
Nor is it a good luck charm
It isn't meant to protect me
From every physical harm.

It's not for identification
For all the world to see
It simply is an understanding
Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket
To bring out a coin or key
The Cross is there to remind me
Of the price he paid for me.

It reminds me too, to be thankful
For the blessings day by day
And to strive to serve Him better
In all that I do and say.

It's also a daily reminder
Of the peace and comfort I share
With all who know my Master
And give themselves to His care.

So I carry a Cross in my pocket
Reminding me, no one but me
That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life
If only I let Him be.

~ Verna Thomas ~
