Do I Trust

Do I trust Him with my life, or do I create strife.
Do I yield to His love, or act like it’s not enough.
Do I listen for His voice, or seek another choice.
Do I stop, be still and know; or am I too impatient to be slow.
Do I stay in the word, or listen to others I’ve heard.
Do I pray to Him, or just be quiet then.
I have a choice and I know it. He has clearly shown it.
Which way will I go, how much further along the road.
Until finally I lay down my piece of the crown.
The one I try to carry on my head but meanwhile my heart is dead.
Let me lay down my crown and exchange it for a gown.
Turn this heart of stone into a treasure only He can own.
Oh, to just trust that He really only wants the best for us.
To give myself away to Him is the greatest plan.
To let Him take me by the hand and lead me to the promise land.
Trust, trust Him I must, this is the better choice.
To let Him in my heart, to have a reason to rejoice.
Oh to trust Him more and more, is truly making my heart soar.

Clinging to the Beloved {poem}

Beloved, He calls you in the desert – the trials of the flesh.
He pours His love upon you, your spirit He will refresh.
He whispers your name so sweetly, His hand upon your face.
His love is overwhelming, overflowing is His grace.
He will never leave you forsaken, though testing drags endlessly on.
His hand remains upon you, you know where you belong.
Yield your heart to the Beloved, He’ll hold it ever near.
Cling to Him as bedrock, nothing you’ll have to fear.
His heart is ever with you, the two having become one.
His heart is ever steadfast, there is no need to run.
Regardless of your shortfall, ever He is drawing near.
No mistake or default enough to cause Him to steer clear.
Cling to Him ever closer, for steadfast remains He.
True to His beloved – the one He’ll never leave.
