A snow storm may be in the forecast of your future days.
Icy cold stares, mean words coated within a frozen haze.
Can you weather it? Are you sure you can be strong?
To be hurt by someone you’ve loved for so long?
What about a torrential rain threatening to flood your streets?
Bills, past due coming down in heavy sheets,
pounding at your checkbook’s door, demanding your every dime.
Will there be enough money, will there be enough time?
What about when you hear the winds of change blowing into town?
Unexpected death, anxiety, fear, threatening to blow you down.
Will you be able to bend with the wind and not break?
Or will those winds blow strong pulling up your stake?
Do any of you think on these fears?
Entertain these thoughts Satan whispers in our ears?
Am I the only one who momentarily freezes in fright,
while the deciever has me in his sight?
Then as if snapping out of a trance, my head pops up!
Remembering, I know the Peacespeaker and He fills my cup.
His love can thaw any icy stare.
His mercy will teach words can be spoken with care.
Guiding us to cast our nets on the other side of the boat.
To show us that with Him, our finances can stay afloat.
He can say to the winds, “Peace, be still”
Erase doubt, anxiety and fear…not by our might but by His will.
I was sharing with another blogger Biblebloggergirl about how I asked you all for a title to a poem a while back. I thought I’d do it again. I have a few ideas for this one but would love to get your input. See if you see what I see in this little poem I put together. So comment what you think it should be titled and I’ll announce the winner (who wins absolutely nothing but a bit of notoriety) in a day or two.
