5-24-14 Go To The Lord (a Sonnet)

Each day awaits just like a hungry beast

To drag you down and gorge upon your soul.

Go to your knees, don’t let the devil feast,

Go to the Lord, His love will keep you whole.

Temptation calls a thousand times a day

To lure you from the light into its hole.

The Holy Spirit draws you close to say:

Go to the Lord, His love will keep you whole.

There comes those moments when you’re scared and lost

When doubt consumes and seems to take control.

Remember these few words whate’er the cost:

The Lord is with me, His love keeps me whole.

Before the weight of sin can take its toll

Go to the Lord, His love will keep you whole.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:

he shall preserve thy soul.

Psalm 121:7
