Renew and Restore

Finding a clear path

To do what is right and just

Is the path I want

~

Get understanding

Make it your priority

Otherwise you’ll find yourself

Living in darkness

Not knowing which way to go

Filled with fear and judgment

~

Guard your mouth and tongue

You’ll avoid calamity

Be clear on what you focus

A secret to know

Whatever that focus is

Will only grow much larger   *       

~

Give thought to your ways

Your feelings can deceive you

Fear will rob your life

Bitterness is a cancer

That will spread through your body

~

Seek wisdom and clear insight

When desperate, come to God

One who loves without limit

Has power to rescue

~

Insight never comes

Before you choose who you’ll trust

You must use your mind

Decide who is trustworthy

Then have the courage to act

~

Anxiety kills

Is blinding and harmful

A doorway to death

~

“Do not be afraid”

Three hundred and sixty-five times

Spoken by your God

This is a voice of promise

That renews and restores life
