TITLE: Two Ways To Risk

Id give it a try
if it affected only me;
Id fix the wrongs
in my family.

The things Id do
cannot be told.
I am not shy,
Im very bold.

Id be a mix of
women strong
and daring, doing right
and righting wrong.

Id putem down
with karate chops,
their mean behaviors
quickly stop!

Those are risks Id take today.
But God demands
I risk in another way,
what He says is simply, Pray.

Pray and dont act
til a proper time,
then let your words
be wise and kind.

I am the One
Who reaches within
every person to convict
them of sin.

You cant change
wrong from the outside in;
its from the inside out
that they cut off their sin.

I know its very hard for you
inclined as you are to see
things through. But, Gods
servant does not strive with men.

Trust Me. You will, as did Martha
at Lazarus tomb find,
that I have a plan
that never entered your mind!

A simply powerful poem and entry. Good job with the topic. Thank you.

God bless~

I don't read poetry because most of the time I can't make heads or tails of it. Yours on the other hand is outstanding. It was as if you knew me and my attitude. Beautifully done!

I really liked this a lot. I often write poems similar to this. I have no doubt that the Holy Spirit is flowing through my pen. I believe you experienced a similar thing when you wrote down what God said to you.

Some of the lines and rhymes felt a tad forced or awkward but a poem is something that is never finished. I know I'll dig out some I wrote years ago and tweak them a bit.

Your message is beautiful and I think you are so blessed to know that God does speak to your heart. I also admire that you don't keep these words to yourself but want to share them with the world so anyone who reads this will also be touched by God.
