Awake

Awake to a new sunlit day

Filled with an aura of hope

After sleeping off the memories and pain

Of trying to climb a slippery slope.

How I have attempted to claw and arise

Out the valley of hurt and disappointment

And so finally view the aqua-marine sky

And be robed in new hopefulness.

Standing to be washed and bathed

In the shimmering warm sunshine;

Wrapped tightly in the streaming rays

Of gentle hope and peacefulness.

Though the day be filled with tasks

That I must dutifully complete,

I can still stop and rest at long last

In the sunlit blanket of warmth and peace.

So I will hold my head up high

To wonderingly and wistfully gaze

Into the neon blue sky

Of this glorious new day.

And then my heart may be content

By the many sweet blessings

That the Lord has lovingly sent

To instill my soul with peace and harmony.

Keep on Believing

039

I awoke this morning filled with many worries and wishing all my troubles away.

I prayed to my Lord but didn’t really believe he would answer me today.

It was a long day ahead of me and I rolled out of bed so very reluctantly.

I ate a little breakfast and turned on some news.

Although storms and wind are predicted, the sky is a brilliant blue!

It was a sign of hope that God had left for me

if only I’d stop doubting and just believe.

I made my way to work helping people throughout the day

While all the time worrying and wishing my own troubles away.

I longingly check my mailbox at my work office

Hoping for some correspondence to ease my troubles a bit

But nothing is there so I continue the day with worries to bear

I help a few more people trying to ease their worries and woes

Get one problem solved, but a few more to go!

My day is almost complete, have just one more person to meet.

She has a complex dilemma and so we devise a plausible plan

To satisfy her worries and restore hopefulness once again.

Back to the office I go still troubling over my own woes

I check my mailbox one more time searching hard to see

Lo, a yellow piece of mail; ah, I then knew the Lord had answered me.

Why do I continue to worry so much; why do I not fully believe?

For the Lord is always listening and quietly watching over me.

And I’m reminded that he gives me plenty of reasons

To not doubt him but just keep on believing.
