An Original Work / January 29, 2019
Do you ever get down in the dumps?
You’ve certainly taken your lumps.
Discouragement’s settling in.
You wonder if you’ll ever win.
Time seems to not be your best friend.
You wonder if this will e’er end.
Will you ever see the light of day?
You cry, and you hope, and you pray.
But, time then goes on with no change.
You wish it would all rearrange.
You wonder, is this all you’ll see.
A miracle’s not meant to be?
Things keep going on as they were.
True change, of which you can’t be sure,
Elusive seems to you right now.
So, humbly, on your knees you bow.
You have no control of this, see? –
This working of your enemy.
For, God has permitted it now,
That one day, all would to him bow.
He prophesied these days would come.
When evil would reign over some;
When we would be hated, for sure,
And we would be called to endure.
So, don’t let discouragement in.
One day, this all will have an end.
God’s purpose for all will take place,
And we’ll see Him then face to face.
So, trust Him now with everything.
Your offerings now to Him bring.
Believe that your life’s in his care,
And do not give up in despair.
