God Brings You To This

It wasn’t the best.
It was just good enough.

My thoughts were all muffled,
the words came out rough.

No other way to end a journal
than to mix it up with a bit of humble.

I don’t profess to be more than I am.
God knows my life is a jungle.

If I were to be any better than this
I certainly wouldn’t be living in doubt.

So here I sit in this current madness.
My voice is silent, but I need to shout.

Why work those vocal chords to a frenzy?
Get myself sick from unknown ending.

I might as well let God take the reins.
He always finds a way for the mending.

Others doubt and worry or ignore.
I am trying to be open so I don’t miss the door.

God brings me to the opportunity.
He will give me the gift of so much more.

I find myself at peace right now.
The numbers will find a way I guess.

We are living in numbers and that isn’t what life is.
When you give it all away, God brings you to this.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.

Words well said Cindy………so often it is at the end of ‘self’ that we find God. Life sure does bring us to places where it becomes a challenge to believe that “all things work together for good…..” (Rom 8:28). “all things”…..not just all good things. Letting God take the reins, hmm…..perhaps a hint to the “good” that comes from difficult circumstances? Thank you for sharing.
