I wanted much to write a song,

but the words would never come along.

The only ones that came to mind,

was a chorus from another time.


It said exactly what I thought –

words that someone else had wrought.

Our minds can eat us up at times –

convinces our demise –

but all along the downward turn

is fueled by nothing more than lies.


I read a Psalm the other day

where David’s mind was quite a mess.

He finally stopped and went to God –

God showed him what he’d missed –

enough to put him back on track;

enough to lift him from his pit.


So then the words from long ago

that tells us where to turn;

when life has pressed us in the dirt;

oh, that we would learn.


“Oh, what peace we often forfeit,

Oh, what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer.”
