God's Gift

If it wasn't for the Lord who walks by my side, even when i'm in sin he's gone along 
for the ride.Thank heaven 2011 i'm here to see, another chance to advance 
and be all i can be. My resolution reduce pollution as i give or take, stand as a man 
for Jesus sake. One day at a time with each step that i climb,give God the glory for 
his story that he laid on the line. I'll do what's right despite what might be just a 
test, i'll do my best and let him handle the rest.

    loved the title and this poem. and so true the Lord loves us, even if we don't deserve it or what we do, when we sin we should always ask for forgiveness, less the mount up on us, that has happen to me a number of times. this was a beautiful write. thank you for reading Go to sleep and for your comment.

    Reducing pollution is an admirable goal, Anthony. But if you can walk with the Lord by your side through 2011, you will be able to surmount the challenges or "tests" thrown before you. I do believe we are given these tests to help us grow. A remarkable poem of faith. Blessings to you throughout the new year. Love, Carolyn

    Excellent ideals that you have established for the new year and may God grant you this resolution..Living right is not easy for that are so many small things that we are faced with each day but one thing for sure if we say that we are sorry and ask his forgiveness he will forgive and restore our fellowship...Your presence at my work lifted my spirits..Sara

    Hi Anthony. Thanks for your visit. Loved this piece. Timed for rap with music oozing from every line. I always compare rap and old time poetry . (Bagpipe Music by Louis Macniece) I tried to work it in a piece called 'Life through the bottom of a Glass'. Have a look , forget about the old fashioned phrasing and let me know what you think. Great write/read. Eamon
