Here is a poem that I wrote in 2005…
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I am surrounded by a river of confusion:
Trying not to get caught up in the current,
Trying to swim against the flow of doubt,
Drowning in the whirlpool of life.
I am scared about what is coming;
Knowing that in the end it will be alright.
Whatever the outcome of the future;
I can rest in the arms of Christ.
I am amazed by the ultimate conclusion:
That trials and troubles may come to haunt me,
But I reach out for God’s hand of strength,
And He rescues me from the battles I fight.
