In Doubt

Oh Lord, I pray with all my might
That things will turn and go just right
I sit and fret of what will become
Sometimes lose faith and barely hang on.

I tell myself, why are you in doubt
Ask the Lord, ask  the Lord I shout
I should look to the brightness of day
To take all my problems away.

I should not let the darkness within
Precious moments do not come again
Waste of negativity on the mind
Life is passing a moment at a time.

For tomorrow is not promised to any one
We learn of love and joy as we go along
Trials and tribulations will come each day
We are blessed and must trust in His way.

    I love the drift of this well written poem. Read "Midnight Brings The Dawn" on my page and you'll know why. They seem to be written from the same ink bottle..... Great Job.... Jake

    The last stanza is so powerful, Phyllis. For tomorrow is not promised to any one.........wisdom in that line, remembering it is something we need to do..........and trust in His way.
