Well my dear blog friend Abigail has started a monthly poetry blogging challenge that I decided to take her offer up on. I write a little bit of poetry and have always liked it, I just often lack motivation and such. But now I will be posting a piece of original poetry the first Monday of every month. I am really excited for this and the chance to practice my poetry. Now I will warn you that I am still learning and it’s not very good yet (in my opinion). But I hope that the Lord will work through my inabilities and that He will get the glory. Soli Deo Gloria!
I hear the words whispered gently to me,
“Surrender my daughter and you will be free”
Why do I resist and not believe?
When it’s been you all along that’s carried me?
I think to myself that you are not big enough
That this belongs to me and no one else
How dare you take away my dreams?
How dare you take away what my life means?
This is who I am
This is life to me
Then you gently whisper words of truth
“Give your life into my hands
I am good and I have a plan
It may be bigger then what you can see
It may be beyond your own reasoning
For there is nothing beyond my reach
I am in control of every last thing
Never fear my daughter
For I love you more then the stars
So trust me with you heart”
I cry out these words tonight,
“You alone are my life!
You alone are my light!
My portion and supply
Until the very day I die”
