Mountains

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 8/28/2016

Again I'm confus'd, bewilder'd and torn;
I feel like a Sampson shaven and shorn.
Betrayed by my fears and wond'ring "What next?"
I'm taken, again, right back to this text;
"...My peace give I unto you," Jesus said,
"...Not as this world gives," His men Spirit-led.
They were radical and strange yet trusting,
Whereas I'm radic'lly strange, and doubting.
"...Faith like a mustard seed..." can move mountains;
Yet my shoulders carry the mountainous plains.
"My yoke is easy and my burden light,"
I cast all on Him to hold with His might.

This is beautiful, honest,

This is beautiful, honest, and true.
You are encouraging through what you write, and I really see that you put your prayers into poetry.
Whatever you're going through, don't give up and use it to help you truly depend on only God -- that's what He wants from us -- complete dependence on Him, spending alone time with Him even through our not-as-rough times. He will bless those who love Him that much. :)

Thank you.

Thank you so much, Meghan. :) I had to read over your comment a couple of times and really just savor it. Thank you again.
God is good. He's teaching me that He is enough.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬

This is encouragingly profound...a lot of depth, in this.
I love the Word strewn throughout it, and I especially love the ending. Stay strong in Him, my friend x

Thank you!! Two songs I've found extremely encouraging/convicting are "Don't Want to Live for Me" by Moriah Peters and "All I Have is Christ" by Sovereign Grace. :)
