In Moments of Despair

Remind me today who I am

after the storm has passed-

for I have forgotten

and lost my way, fog has

clouded  my path.


Remind me today who I am

I know still the way I go

but long for a faithful companion

familiar with this kind of woe.


Remind me today who I am

I’ll stop here a moment to rest

passing the time, while I wait,

counting the moments blessed.


Remind me today who I am

judge me not,  sincerely,  I plead;

for I am a fellow traveler-

your judgment is not what I need.


Remind me today who I am

until my memory re-learns

the promises I once held dear

of His glorious return.


The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:4-5

    Very well said message in your poem. I really am drawn to the fourth stanza. We all need to learn to accept people as they are unless they ask for our thoughts or ideas.

    Prayers are with you; looking forward to what the Lord has planned for you. I invite you to join me on WordPress for a blog site that is centered on reminding God’s children of their legacy in the kingdom.
