THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE (poem)

March 30, 2021

Don’t believe the little lie 
That says you’re nothing more
Than all the sum of your mistakes
That landed at your shore

The tide rolls in , the tide rolls out
And hope just disappears
Emotions seem to swallow us
The same thing year after year

But don’t you know this very thing
The Lord God gave you wings
They’re hidden by the cloudiness
The lies the enemy brings

He gave you wings to lift you up
To rise above the lies
The kingdom of God is there for you
By faith if you will try

To move your eyes toward what He said
The path that He has laid
He’s planted hidden treasures
For you to be arrayed

Dressed in robes of righteousness
Provided by His Son
He waits for you to call to Him
The battle He has won

He waits for us to choose Him
That’s how it must be done
And when you do the cloud will lift
When you can see His son

Hope will arise as you seek Him out
He will not disappoint 
He is alive this you will see
Your head He will anoint

This life is where we choose the path
That we will walk upon
God is a loving Father
Our perceptions have been wrong

Like I said the father of lies
Satan is his name
Has followed you since you were born
To distract you is his game

But deadly is the game he plays
Our eyes must choose to see
Listen to the words of God
That lead us to be free

Open up and talk to Him
He’s waiting for your call
Try a little faith and then
A little light will fall

He’s known you from the beginning
You were the thought in His heart
Though you may see another thing
Like a caterpillar from the start

Your cocoon is inside of Him
If you will choose to trust
When you come forth and His plan is done
You are a piece of art

Will you trust a little bit
A tiny little ray
Let that hope turn heavenward
For You there’s a brand new day

Dare to try, please think it through
What have you to lose
Lift up your eyes beyond the clouds
He’s waiting for you to choose.
