What to Do

What to do? When with Bills mounting, collectors at the door.
What to do? When you see your wife knowing your illness may be final’ No cure.
What to do? When stress enters your mind.
What to do? When you scream and holler being totally unkind.

What to do? When you have to give up your work as you get sicker.
What to do? When you fall to a predatory loan company your heart hurts, it is your ticker.
What to do? When you see your love of your life getting sick with worry.
What to do? When you don’t know what to say maybe you think you’ll start with sorry.

This is what you can do. Remain strong in marriage you fear as your wife does, God.
This is what you can do. Pray for love, pray for your Fathers spiritual nod.
This is what you can do. Seek the Father with all your heart and soul.
This is what you can do. Fear the Father living by the “Word” of God Jesus will make you whole.

What you do? Both husband and wife took their vows in front of their spiritual Father.
What you do? Know that we are washed in Jesus’ blood a spiritual marriage this much we have gathered.
What you do? As in all decisions “Live by every word of God, fear Him and love will be given.”
What you do? Don’t fret you have your heavenly Father to protect you. 
Together steadfast, guided by the Holy Spirit you’ll enter in Paradise.
God is the Kingdom.

    Oh, Robert...this well-written poem is special, not only because it comes from your inner being but because it tells of your incredible faith, my friend. I noticed that you had not been posting but thought you were just too busy as a lot of us are. Soup Mail. Love, Annalise

    I can really appreciate this poem...knowing the heartache and worry of finding out my dad has cancer and the struggle of treatment and everything that goes along with it. But God is ALWAYS faithful. He works out everything for the good of those who love him! I don't know if this poem is about you, but if it is, I am praying for healing in the name of JESUS for you. Blessings my friend.
