Dr. KP Yohannan Blog - Gospel for Asia

Dr. KP Yohannan in prayer in Wills Point, Texas.

I opened the door
to my wardrobe
to get a shirt
that matched my suit.

Among the expensive
bright lovely clothes
an old shirt peeked through
that was faded and used.

Gray and old
collar torn
holes everywhere
stitches out.

It has been there for
twenty years
hung unused for
all these years.

I stood still
with the closet open
memories going back
to the early seventies.

In North India
with a few clothes
living with a team
working for God.

This was my best shirt
during those years
now it is old
without any use.

I still keep it
among the rest
to remind me daily
of those early years.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits.”
—Psalm 103:2, Bible
