I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry Voice of Experience

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13

Dad said, “How can you stand on the promises of God
while sitting on the premises?”
Well, I’ve been sitting on my rear too long—
giving up, doing nothing but vegetating.
I am standing up.
I am re-capturing my dreams
and creating new ones.
I am reaching for all God has for me,
no longer content with the status quo,
or believing the lie that this is all there is.
God has more for me.
I am claiming His promises
and that begins with renewed hope.

Help me, Lord, be confident not in myself, but in your plan and purpose for my life. Amen.
