Topic: Up and Down (04/02/09)

TITLE: WHICH WAY WILL YOU CHOOSE?

The way that I choose to view my life
Is almost entirely up to me.
When the cup of my life seems empty,
It should really be half full to me!

Our Savior is ready to lift us up,
While Satan tries to tear our life down.
Jesus seeks to give us a sweet smile,
As Satan tries to make us wear a frown!

When Satan attacks, our life is half empty
As Christ bears us up, itís more than half full!
Itís all where we seek when we feel cast down.
Seek Christ, and get in there, and then help pull.

We often try to walk on our own,
Allowing Satan to have full sway.
Calling upon Jesus, reading Godís word;
Will cast all earthly cares far away!

So, when earthly trials seem to press us down;
Weíll cast all our cares at Jesusí feet;
Determined to reach up, instead of down,
Not being satisfied in a life of defeat!

Cute! And true.

Lots of uses of the topic here--it would also have worked for empty/full.

This would benefit from some closer attention to consistent meter, and to more complex rhyming.

It's a light and sweet poem, suitable for a bulletin insert, perhaps.
