Faith- A Poem
When I can’t see the end of a dream
Or when the future is full of things unseen
I keep myself awake at night
And try to figure out what’s right.
Surely, if I make my lists and plans
I can come up with a scheme most grand.
Funny how it usually works
My plans make everything so much worse.
My thoughts alone are not good guides.
My feelings always go awry.
New plan: I won’t plan so much I’ll pray.
New plan: I won’t tell; I will obey.
I can’t see the end of the road
And honestly, I don’t know where to go.
I don’t like the change that’s coming.
I’m afraid of the course I’m plotting.
What will the future hold for me?
What mischief will life make for me?
“Trust” one word seeps into my mind.
“Don’t think just trust in Me and find
Courage to walk a road unknown
And faith that you are not alone.”
To have courage is to do something in the midst of fear.
To have faith is to trust when things are just unclear.
Both are choices you must make
If a life well-lived is what’s at stake.
When the future is untold
Let His guidance make us bold.
When the road to take seems too steep
Have faith that His plans for you will keep.
Faith is the things in which we hope.
Without faith we will not grow.
We’ll be turning circles round and round.
No matter what we’ll gain no ground.
We repeat our mistakes again and again.
We say we believe but that’s pretend.
Blessed are those who do not see
But choose instead to just believe.
