Taste and See How Good The Lord Is

Struggles ebb and flow like the ocean tides.
They wane and wax like the glorious moon;
Deliberately devours the psyche, if allowed
There is truth to be known, worth more than gold… 
We are not Masters of our destiny; we are not in control. 


The day of discovery comes; when we’re lost at sea 
When panic overrides the mind and the brain liquefies;
Caught in a rip tide, seized; and should we fight, we’d lose
We resign to God’s will; andare carried towards the shore
The lesson learned...it’s not by our own strength that we live
~*~

Psalm 34:8…”O Taste and see how good the Lord is; 
                                          blessed is the man who trusts in him”.

    Smile ˜ I absolutely agree with the fact that yes, everything is in Our Beautiful Fathers Holy Hands * So as I have reiterated afore from the pages of salvation that, what is it that the clay should say, why have You made me this way? ˜ And what is fear, my dear sweet beautiful Annalise, to those the faithful * Did Stephen have fear in his heart as he was being stoned to death ˜ Smile, no, yet he rejoiced as praying His Father to forgive they ˜ I love Your Beauties faith & I love You, always & forever; John!:) ˜
