Topic: Bullies (08/09/04)

TITLE: Giants in our life
By Norma OGrady

A hateful disposition,
Gives bullies ambition,
To frighten into submission,
With troublesome imposition,

Inducing fear into another
Inferiority begins to smother
Intimidated by threats
Results do upset

Attempts to assault
Offensive insults
Threatening to do harm
Feeling sudden alarm

You don't want to succumb
And let the bullies overcome
With authority you must demand
You have to take a stand

This I understand fully
There have always been bullies
David had Goliath to defeat
Gods guidance David did entreat

This is how the story goes
Goliath was a giant to his foes
Soldiers in the army of King Saul
Were terrified of fighting this formidable giant so tall,


King Saul knew the future looked grim
David knew that God would help him
I will go against this heathen man
David knew God had a plan

Breathing a quick prayer
David placed one of the smooth stones in his sling
He drew back his hand and slung the stone through the air
Into the forehead of the giant it did ping,

The giant fell face down onto the ground
Can you imagine that sound
Denting his brow deeply
Goliaths head he did then amputee

God watches over and protects
Those who love Him He won't neglect
His promises he wil keep
Like a shepherd protects his flocks of sheep.

On the Father we must cling
Faith in God can help us to do things
That we otherwise do not have the strength, talent or training to do.
Your enemy He will subdue

When bullies start to trouble you
Remember God is loyal and true
Lift you heart to Him in Prayer
For all your burden's He will bear

all that's left to say is "amen!" well done.
Norma OGrady08/16/04
I feel that almost everyone has been bullied at one time or another in their life. Be it by a sister, brother, cousin, anyone can be a bullie it has no barrier as to age, race, color, or creed.
But I also AMEN the fact God is faithful to help us fight our battles and in some he fight's them for us,,we need not lift a finger. Praise God. He is so wonderful and worthy of our praises.
Yeshua bless

Great job, Norma, as always. It amazes me you can take every challenge and turn out a these great poems.
Kenny Paul Clarkson08/17/04
Just wondering how long it takes you to compose such detailed poems?

You obviously have a great gift.
Norma OGrady08/17/04
Usually, I can write them in a few days.
The Holy Spirit guides my thoughts and I write what the Spirit gives me.
Any gift I have come's from God.
I want God to get the glory.
Yeshua bless you
