Quit?!?

© 2000, 2001, used with permission.

He said to me:

Why don't you quit?
Just consider it,
…well, not really quit
just a little respite
real moderate
and delicate
just for now forget
that old pulpit

And I replied:

Quit?!?
Why? 'cause hard hit?!?
What? and just sit?!?
And take it easy, just a bit?

Quit?!?
Not when cruelly hit!
We won't forget,
God's Holy Writ,
Our survival kit,
And armored outfit!

Quit?!?
We're too legit!
Like M.C. Hammer's hit
we’ve too much grit
and our path is lit
our hearts are knit
for all to wit,
you devilish twit
that into your mitt
you’ll never get
us to fit
or us to split
hence, we admit
we’ll recommit
and resubmit
albeit,
we will not quit!

Quit?!?
Quite opposite!
For you’ll remit
in duplicate

not commensurate,
but triplicate
it’s appropriate
that God’s docket
will not permit
Him to remit
the things you did
and we will get
back every bit
in quadruplicate!

Just up and quit?!?
Inappropriate!
and quite unfit
to just forfeit
my benefit
to transit
to a summit
where I will sit
In love's climate
And you will sit
subordinate,
that’s definite
you hypocrite!

Quit?!?
Not when emotionally hit!
And you know it
so you just get
quickly exit
to your desolate
deserving pit
‘cause when hardest hit
I don’t know, how to
quit!

Wow Jason how totally awesome. I'm going to print that out and give it to every pastor I know. Because any that have been in ministry any time at all certainly have all at least once thought to quit.

Alex Gee is a wonderful man, I'm so glad God blessed all of us with his time, vision, and prayers at Urbana.

I know I am not a minister or anything like that, but I really needed to read that just now. :)
