The grace of today

I used to constantly dwell on the past or worry about the future. I did not trust in the Lord enough to place my life in His gentle hands. Here is a poem I wrote about forgetting to live in the present.

Tripping down the path of time
I stumbled into yesterday's graveyard
Buried broken dreams in her scarred belly
Watered her ancient soil with my sorrow
Forgetting today in my haste
I tumbled forward into tomorrow


  1. What a beautiful gift from God you have in writing poems. I had to read it twice and then it so touched my spirit. Wow!

    For 2 days now a little Litany kept coming through my mind after a prayer meeting Thursday Night. So it is not a poem but it speaks to me so much about the spiritual battle we are in. God bless you!

  2. Thank you, Linda. I go on your blog everyday and I read what you wrote about the spiritual battlefield and I loved it.You are very special to God and He brings you to my mind alot for some reason, so please know that you have a friend cheering you on.
