TITLE: Snickers Bar Faith

I had only coffee for breakfast,
It got me up and awake.
But what You had for me Lord you say,
Was a Denver omelette and a steak!

For snack I grabbed a granola bar,
"Hey, it could be a worse choice," I wavered.
But You had sweet melons with berries and cheese,
I missed all those mouth-watering flavors.

I skipped right over lunch today,
So busy and oh so rushed.
Your Spirit even reminded me;
Why do I feel like slush?

I'll munch that Big Snickers bar.
The protein will surely satisfy.
Until I can have some dinner,
Because now, I just got to fly.

I hit the mattress, close my eyes,
And start to unwind and pray.
But somehow I feel I missed
A delicious banquet on Your menu today.

Is that my Spirit rumbling?
A bad attitude is starting to show.
I need to sit at your feet Lord
And take in sustenance to grow.

Just bits and bites of Snickers bars
Might get me through a day.
But in reality I am really famished, Lord;
...And it makes it hard to pray.

So, awake to His plate of Fullness;
Take in his fresh Truth in Word,
Smell the aromas of His promises
In quiet time, discipline and observe.

Every day we need a balance
To maintain a Spirit divine,
Savour every course He offers you.
There are unlimited refills, and no long line.


I Peter 2:2-3
...like newborn babes long for the pure milk of the Word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.

This poem speaks the truth loud and clear. You managed to put a wonderful reminder into a soothing but urgent verse. Well done.

Nice take on my favorite candy bar.

What a delightful poem. It spoke directly to my heart. I'm one to settle for less than what the Lord delights in giving me. Well done.
