Glued to calendar-marked days --- drawing nigh alerted that without wings, time does fly… I just exclaimed an ambivalent sigh since this year is about to say good bye. Recalling deadline angst of gruesome woes that once attacked my soul with panic blows… how I yearned for sweet calmness to enclose keeping me safe from chaotic rush-flows. Engulfed with schedule, encircled in red being gripped by own “achievementless” dread… I confessed lack of wit to plan ahead admitting slothful and vain leisure tread. Resolving to savour treasured moment and leave legacy of life’s fulfillment… I prayed for God’s wondrous empowerment staying joyous in His blest engagement. To overcome struggles along life’s race competing with self for perfection trace I relied on Christ’s firm uplifting brace experiencing --- in each pursuit --- His grace. Oh, my heart, then assured with victory bounced back from pain of failure’s misery through the Saviour’s second chances’ dowry to yield love-propped accomplishment story. Hence, I still persist to do utmost best trusting the Lord* amidst trial or test reaping good success of service harvest… while putting my all with last minute zest.
