Click clock…The same as tick-tock… BOOM ! The clock begins and out the gate, not knowing where I have my fate. I look down at the track trying to find The Lane, wanting to avoid any such pain. Moving to greed, but I see these are not freed. Transitioning to malice, I see in this there is no palace. Continuing down the circle changing to anger, but now rest has become my stranger. Heading to lust and all that is there are shadows and dust.
“But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.” — 2 Peter 3:8-10
A Comforting Voice Calls
I visited vanity, but in that, I only found insanity. Running harder, growing scared there is no right; I won’t believe it if the others are right, then why I do feel so wrong?
Caught up in this terrible storm that won’t end; these thoughts make my mind warp and bend. Wait, what is that? A comforting voice calls out, “trust in me, and I will take away all your sin.” My clothes become dirty and ruined. Can this be forgiven? Not me, but yet the voice cries out, “I am.” Heading closer, the dirt piles up, I can take this no longer. I yell out, “I TRUST IN YOU. I cannot run this race.” I stop to see; You are now laying with me. You have come to where I am, giving me the foundation on which to stand.
From Doubt to Faith
Lifting up and out, but yet something in me wants to doubt. The race has been my whole life, how can it be that you take away all my strife? Rest in You is what I find; repentance is something that does not bind. No longer running towards something but now running for something. Decisions to tame and the thoughts of my mind are becoming the same. Making things obedient to you, please take over all I do. Great rest to give you my best.
My best for you is what I desire; Lord, let me never lose this fire. Burn through my loins, capture every thought, for this battle was fought. I surrender all to You, and in You, I find no shame. Please help me have words that show Your love, and I want others to feel this from above.
Christ is Leading You From Doubt to Faith
The days I have little to do is most when You need my mind to rest in You. Preparing me for the battle ahead, I go in armored because I can no longer be dead. Ready to take on whatever this world throws at me because I know Satan is there trying to change the truth in which I see. Let me not stand in pride but take this humbly in stride. I understand that it is Christ that will suffice. No mountain stands in your way when Christ is leading the way!
