My Writing

 

BESET

 

Never quite caught up.

No time for rest,

So much depends on me.

Frustration, anger

Squabbling kids,

Rushing here and there

Daylight hours far too few,

Why am I

So easily beset

By all that I must do?

 

Bills piling high,

Doctor bills, necessities,

Washer down, vacuum worn out,

Despair over disability,

Inability to cope with issues,

Abortion, euthanasia, crime.

Who am I to make a difference

For my myself and my family?

 

In the midst of my angry confusion,

I hear His quiet, gentle voice,

"Trust in me, my child.

Rest in me, and let ME

Guide your way.

Nothing is too difficult for me.

You trust me for your eternal destiny,

Can you not, also

Trust me for your daily needs?"

 

Bowing, I give it all to Him,

My life, My health,

My schedule, My family,

My questions, my fears,

My frustrations, and my doubts.

Let Him reset my priorities.

Trust in His care

I find that He

Supplies... abundantly.

Christmas Comes
2007 Carolyn R Scheidies

Christmas comes
 Not with gifts and glitter and gaiety,
 Not with parties, Santa and trees.

Christmas comes
 To the reverent heart in the quiet of night,
 Illuminated by Christ's holy, sacrificial light.

The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined. Isaiah 9:2
