With God's help

I hear the train coming down the tracks,
breaking the silent sound of a lonesome attack.
I stood awaiting the endless break,
of what I thought was a give and take.

I thought with time that life would give,
the reason for wanting the reason to live.
The night was dark, as the sound approached
this little light growing as a shining small broach.

I felt the power of this massive machine,
I knew it could break this endless dream.
As I stood awaiting the endless break,
again of what I thought was a give and take.

Then I heard a small still voice,
one I knew yet thought was gone,
I felt this need to loudly rejoice,
to sing a familiar song.

I stepped back from the moment of needing to break,
the reason of what I thought was a give and take.
My voice beamed out as the train did near;
*”Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep
and to break my heart? For I am not ready
to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem
for the name of the Lord Jesus.”

I pondered for what seemed hours on end.
What did I mean when my speaking began?
Was this a verse I had rehearsed?
Was this something my mother had spoken?
Was there a chain that I knew needed to be broken?

I stood back from the lonesome attack,
as the train hurdled passed me and down the track.
To break this endless cycle of pain unknown,
I spoke the only true words I had known.
*About putting on the full armor of God,
of keeping the gospel of peace, with your feet well shod.
The armor of peace is the armor of God.

I knew then and there for my life’s sake,
The endless attack God did help me to break.

* Acts 21:13 & Ephesians 6:13-19

God is our helper and Christ has set us free from the fear of death. For us believers "to live is Christ, to die is gain"
