The Mystery

Adventure called

So I ran straight out the door!

My hopes were high

But they all soon hit the floor.

My eyes were bright

Fixed on a view that I’d longed for

Then trouble came running

And I lost the metaphor 

It’s a mystery

What tomorrow will bring

It’s a tug-of-war that can undo my heart

Yet, when I glance back

I know You were in it

For You love us, Lord

From start to finish.

Therefore my Heart is Glad

“I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.”

Psalm 16:8-9

Blessed Assurance

“Christ, as man, did always set his Father’s will and glory before him, as he himself often declares: see John 10:18John 14:31He is at my right hand — To strengthen, protect, assist, and comfort me. And this assistance of God was necessary to Christ as man. I shall not be moved — Either from the discharge of my duty, or from the attainment of that glory and happiness which are prepared for me. Though archers shoot grievously at me, and both men and devils seek my destruction, and God sets himself against me as an enemy; yet I am assured, he will deliver me from all my distresses.”

  2. Losing the metaphor.
    I’ve done that before.

    Tried to use a window like a door.
    Fell from the second floor.

    I don’t quite have your touch….
    Great poem, and I love the scriptures you use to make it.
    Blessings.

    1. Thank you. 😁 I knew you were a Christian, Gavin. I think you said something about prayer way back on one of my posts. I didn’t know the bit about cornbread. 😀 Cornbread is good. Being born again is good too. 😄 Hope your week is amazing friend! ❤
