“A Thousand Worries”

This is a fabulous poem, prayer, reminder from a lovely woman–Kelly, you’re speaking my heart, and everybody’s who I talked to today–thank you Muchly!!!

TBD {To be determined}

For every drop of trust, I hold a thousand worries
I have a thousand wants, a thousand needs
I bring to You
while making my own plans to get them done.
Thinking the peace comes from the thing received, achieved,
rather than You,
my flimsy patience begs me hasten
encouraging my DIY plans to control my own fate.
But fate proves a heavy load
for my fragile hands, which now,
I see, hold a thousand worries once more.

So I come again, Lord,
making known my request.
You’re not just my backup plan;
You’re my peace.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

– Philippians 4:6-7

Whispered:  “Will this sparkled light be enough?

Will it make the nights less scary, and winter warmer?

Will it keep me safe? Dear Lord, You hear me ~ please make it so.”
