MY POEM ON MONDAY 12 OCT 2020….
The prophet Jeremiah,
who was tasked
with delivering a dire message
to a rebellious people,
"But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out
its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes
its leaves are always green.
it has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit."
(Jeremiah 17: 7-8)
Though the odds may be stacked
against us on this earth,
and the anxiety we suffer from wreaks havoc,
we must never underestimate the power of prayer, and the living Word of God.
He is always bigger, always good,
and always close to the brokenhearted....
