Just One More (poem by me)

Let’s have a drink or maybe two,
I notice this habit sticks to me
But not to you
I shake it off
Now it’s stuck like glue.

What will my family say?
I’ve disappointed them again,
How can I face God and pray?
I used to speak with Him so open.

Savior, save me from this spinning circle,
Relief, regret, repent, repeat,
Help, I’m merely mortal,
Today I’ll rise up, overcome, and defeat.

Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death. —Psalm 68:20

*This poem is not actually about my own struggle. Yet, it is easy for us (as Christians) to relate to this vicious cycle since we all must wrestle with our flesh against sin.  May we all press onward to the goal of Jesus Christ together. I pray the Lord helps you to overcome whatever you are battling today! (If you were interested in my own testimony of deliverance, you read it in a blog HERE.)

Love Can Last (poem by me)

A marriage
is an old covered bridge
two people embark on together

taking shelter with promises of forever
but darkness ensues and threatens their endeavor
will creaky planks give way and collapse?

in time the darkness will pass
love can last.

There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.—Proverbs 30:18-19

Trouble (poem by me)

My problem is chilling,
Big as the Chrysler building,
It’s not just anxiety,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

It hangs in focus,
Everyone must notice,
They joke politely,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

My stomach feels queasy,
My thoughts are uneasy,
Rescue is unlikely,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

A stone falls from the sky,
I begin to wonder why,
A slingshot is handed to me,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him. —1Samuel 17:50
