Treasure Island

Bob Gotti

(03/15/1957 / New Jersey)


Small frustrations along the way, can surely darken the light of day,
The Light we have within our life; Light we get through Jesus Christ.
Frustrations can supplant within, that Light of Christ with darker sin.
Creating big things from what is small, can cause men to trip or fall.

For a bitter root can have a start, causing us to sin within our heart,
Soon you’re filled with some grief, where there once was all peace.
That peace that you receive within, when you put your trust in Him.
God’s Peace that will not depart, if you trust Him with all your heart.

Frustration is just one more ploy, from Satan to rob you of your joy,
A joy that’s built upon God’s Grace, to lift you up any time or place.
In frustration you’ll be overcome, unless you rely upon God’s Son,
The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who died to give men New Life.

Trust the God of your Salvation, to guard you from life’s frustration,
Christ will guard your heart and mind, leaving frustration far behind.
He’ll lead you beside waters still, to help you to trust in God’s Will,
But not because you understand, but you trust in The Son of Man.

All of your concerns, big and small, give to Christ, who’s Lord of all.
God’s victory you can achieve, through Christ when you do believe.
Your problems to Him just release, and He will fill you with a peace,
And with His Light along the way, He’ll light your path night and day.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
