Poetry: Gift Inside : I deal in hope

I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Gift Inside

Problems never seem to arrive nicely packaged,
Dealt with.
No. They arrive in groups
Delivered like blows–
That flow–one after the other.

If there were a way to
Leave them unopened,
I would…
Often not an option.
But I found
One sound solution…

Hand each package off to Jesus.
Let him
Help handle
The unwanted,
Not so desirable “Gift inside”
And abide in Him.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
