Wondering mind; can’t concentrate.
Good grief, how’d I ever get this way?
Flitting thoughts, uneasiness; what a state!
Is there no place of rest today?
Try to settle, afghan on my lap.
Bible open and tea on my table.
Deep breath. Closed eyes. Pretended nap.
Suddenly hear: Fear not! In Me you are able.
Eyes open, focus on God’s Holy word.
It says “Be strong and of good courage.”
Peace pours forth from His mighty sword.
Now, I wonder why I had been worried!
