What's The Best Way? - Poem by Denis Martindale

At first, I didn't have a clue... what words were best to write...
I prayed like other poets do... Please God, grant me insight...
And inspiration borne of grace... that I may feast once more...
Just see my heart and not my face... the me You know for sure...
And only then to guide my thoughts... like Psalmists long ago...
I'll pick and choose, like one who sorts... to make the verses grow...
Without the doubts of what to share... so nothing halts the course...
Yet adding edits here and there... the words to reinforce...

I know not what awaits me still... and yet I know You, Lord...
I seek what's best to serve Your will... so wise words aren't ignored...
Yours are the gifts of prophecy... praise and celebration...
It's up to You, not up to me... Please bless revelation...
For as a man, I've lived this long... I've seen so many things...
I'm old and yet I once was strong... I know what true joy brings...
All my sorrows made me think twice... yet still You held my hand...
So I'd remember Paradise... and all my God has planned...

GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU BLESS GOD!
DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR HIM...
