Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

Swimming in the torrents of misery
Swimming in the river of trouble
Swimming in the lake of shame
When will you swim towards Me?

When the waves have you sinking
You thought youโ€™d come up for air
That was just just wishful thinking
You got to swim with the current

Swimming in the pool of sadness
Swimming in the ocean of grief
Swimming in the ripples of anxiety
When will you swim towards Me?

You are waiting on each promise
Will you continue to swim?
Or will admit defeat?
Losing on the whim

Swimming in the gulf of guilt
Swimming in the pond of denial
Swimming in the whirlpool of angst
When will you swim towards Me?

Remember victory is a lighthouse away
Why not swim towards the bay?
A triumphant light guiding the way

      Yes, true, but how many times do we choose the ego over our inner voice or Godโ€™s voice? We need the Father more than we could ever know. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ˜€
