IMAGINE

Imagine life is a manuscript that you’re writing day by day
and Jesus Christ is the editor who’ll help you along the way.
Do you think of how the pages might look on that seemingly far off day
and as you go about your business will you try to do it Gods way?

In the morning do you take the time to dedicate the page that you’ll be writing
and ask the Lord to bless your conscious efforts to glorify him
with your words and deeds and to strengthen you for the battles you‘ll be fighting?

Then maybe later on, exhausted in bed at night
are you anxious about what sort of things may come with the morning light?
Will you cry out “Lord, wash my sins away with the precious blood of Christ?”

Do you pray ”Lord if I should die tonight
may this my manuscript of life be acceptable in your sight?”
so that when the pages are finally read by God above
he’ll be pleased with what he reads in the manuscript of your life.

I love the metaphor throughtout this poem!

I wonder if it'd be a tad smoother with a more consistent rhyme scheme and meter. There are threads on those poetic skills in the Forums on this site (link at the top of this page, look for "Jan's Writing Basics).

This poem has a lot going for it, and I'd love to read more from you!

This poem was a reminder that I need to stop and remember why I write and who I am writing for. Perhaps a couple more stanzas would have strengthened it? (I don't know much about poetry, so please take this suggestion with a grain of salt). Thank you for the reminder.
