Godís timing is not mine
I fear losing my mind
As I wait for His decision
It is not up to me to question

For God knows whatís best
As always itís a test
Will I pass or fail
I feel every inch of that nail

Godís Son took my sin
Itís up to me to look to Him
My mind obsesses about fear
If Iíd only let go to know Heís near

God will always hold the key
To His Son who sets me free
And to that mansion of mine up there
That I will own in time thatís fair

God only asks of me to pray
Look to the cross for salvation today
I might not have another second
To accept Christ and be reckoned

God holds me to my belief
In Jesus Christ to my relief
So in prayer I relinquish my obsession
For itís not up to me to question

Penetrating poetry with so many valuable pertinent points. Thank you for this meaningful poem. Thank you.

God BLess~

"Feel every inch of that nail." That's a connecting line for every reader who feels it with you. He took those nails for you and for me, and for all who will look to Him in faith.

This is outstanding. It choked me up. I feel like you had somehow entered my mind at first. If you touch not even one more person (not that that is evenly remotely likely) know that today in this moment in time you made a huge difference in my heart and I can't thank you enough for it. God bless.
