Don’t be surprised

When the trouble comes your way

Everyone will get their turn

That you can count on


 It is just the way life is

 The question that must be asked

 Will I be ready


 The circumstances

 Will rob you of all your joy

 If you will let it


There’s a difference

 Between mind and the spirit

 When the mind rules things

 We only see half

 When mind and spirit combine

One has the power to see


I’ve had addictions

That have captured my mind here

Only by the Spirit’s love

Have I been able To overcome the deep hurt

Find power to love


There’s a process

Important to understand

In birthing real love


There’s transformation

 That takes place in the human

 When you engage the Spirit

 As well as the mind

 Adding determination

 To know what’s really the truth


 I want to know what it means

 To trust God with all my heart

 To surrender all of me

 Head, heart and the mind


~ My prayer today!

 Make me bold and stout hearted

Focused and fully present

With compassion and firmness

Led by your Spirit

(based on The Psalmist 138:3)

    This reminds me of one of my favorite verses:
    “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
    I find comfort in this verse: we do, indeed, live in a broken, troubled world. But there is hope.
