My Thoughts Are Not High Enough - Poem by Octavius Johnson

Gotta get going I'm gonna be late, What's my agenda today?
I'm thinking I gotta pay this and I gotta go there.

My thoughts aren't ordered because I know I gotta do that
And My thoughts are over here.
Oh yeah, Thank You Jesus but I can't get to that today.

I'm not even thinking about that but what are you doing over
There when my last thought was that you are brining it over here.
I know, I know yeah trust Jesus but....it ain't time

My thoughts are lining up now let me take a minute here and say Lord order my steps in this day.
Oh Yeah! I got that done by the Grace of God's hand
directing my thinking for that purpose.

Lord as I wake by your gentle touch this morning here in the shelter you provide.
I ask you please guide my every thought and
Bless me to keep you first in whatever I am

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have been in turmoil a lot of my life because of doing what I think is right and all I had to do is Let the Lord I serve guide me. I am in a place now where I know I am alive only by His grace and mercy
