As promised, here’s one of the poems I’ve been working on and am excited to share what I have here! At least now I have something, I feel, so I’m excited to get back to writing since I’m feeling inspired again! Without further ado, here is the first of two! This one concerns major life changes,
Within These Setbacks
What’s going on with me lately is something of a mystery-
That is, all manners of past and forgiven sins are hounding me.
They seem to be possessing my being- yes, they’re consuming me lately!
“God, I thought I made peace with my past, so what happened,” I ask?
But I find I have hope and His presence in all things, even in life’s setbacks.
Yes, Lord, within these setbacks I’m finding Your peace
And within these setbacks I’ve found You’ll never leave me
In spite of what the evil one has told me I’m to believe.
Within these setbacks and the questions that follow unceasingly
You haven’t condemned me for asking them; rather, You hear me speak!
Lord, I’m ready, then, to break the chains of my selfish miseries
And ready to push back against the setbacks, then to be redeemed!
Remind me of Your life, death, and rising again and carry me
That I may see naught more as I live than Your purpose for me.
Setbacks be gone! I’m ready!
Take my life, Lord, and use all I’ve been, am, and will be
To Your glory alone, For Your Name Only.
Let it be. I’m ready!
