This poem is pretty self explanatory. I wrote it in 2007.
Does your life feel like a complete mess?
Are you in a constant state of distress?
Is your life filled with pain?
Do all your efforts seem to be in vain?
Does the path you travel seem to be a dead end road?
Are lifes pressures crushing you under their heavy load?
Are you at the poing you need hep t make it through?
But not sure where to turn or what to do?
I know how you feel, I’ve been there before
Every direction seems to be blocked by an unopened door
I can share with you my friend how I learned to make it through
Your rewards will be endless if you heed my advice to you.
Learning to let God carry your load, letting Him have control
Displacing obstacles, allowing His love to permeate your soul
Granting God access inside, He reciprocates and starts to provide
Unlimited love and strength to sustain you during life’s unpredictable ride
Ephesians tells us Christ’s love surpasses all knowledge
Filling us with the fullness of God
What He can do is exceedingly and abundantly above
All we ask or think, according to the power that works in us
We were created for His pleasure to share His love we cannot measure
But afforded us free will, a single requirement to fulfill
To reap the bounty of His grace and one day gaze upon His face
We must ask Christ to abide in our heart, taking His rightful place
Once you’ve taken this step, you’ll see how God takes hold
Changing you into his child saved by grace, from the sinner of old
He carries your burdens while down life’s path you trod
Once you relinquish control by letting go and by letting God
