Wrestling With Restlessness

Stabilize my heart Oh Lord

I am like water

My thoughts drift

And my feet follow

Suddenly my words change

Then I look and some one else has taken my place

 

Strengthen your hold on me Oh Lord

For weeds grow where fruit should flourish

Soil is dry

Cannot be nourished

Time moves

Weakness grows

 

Settle the storm within me Oh Lord

The wild bronc within

Follows no direction

There is contentment in the even tide

Help me find it

And there abideabide

 

(Followed no prompt but my own)

I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused. Soon to be added is another blog...writings on hope from a biblical perspective. Now it can be seen at purplepandasandotherphenomena.blogspot.com. please feel free to visit.
