Shift

Shift

 

You tell me to trust things just as they are.

While planning appears to bring joy and comfort,

Really it leads to anxiety.

(We aren’t the ones who plan our lives)

 

You say to bring You my weaknesses,

And You will let peace befall me because my

Shifted focus rids me of apprehension.

(We aren’t the ones who plan our lives)

 

You encourage me to trust you, for

Your peace isn’t a luxury, but a necessity

to evail everyday.

(We aren’t the ones who plan our lives)

 

You declare that thankfulness for each

moment from you leads to experiencing

new shades of joy.

(We aren’t the ones who plan our lives)

 

You say I need to accept myself and the life

You have given me; offering alternatives

Doesn’t lead to fulfillment.

(We aren’t the ones who plan our lives)

 

You cry out that following you isn’t

Just the best way – but the only way, for

Your susurrations usher us to Heaven.

(You are the one that plans our lives)
