A Quest For Truth

When struggles are present
Will I remember Your name?
Do I focus on all that eludes
Or trust with unwavering faith?

When tears are shed
And fear rears its head,
Do I foster those thoughts
Or believe You instead?

A little discomfort may be good for the soul
To make me think and help me grow.
But, will I continue to walk in Your ways
Or be tempted by sin and worldly games?

Mistakes will be made, many lessons learned
As I fight to do it on my own accord.
May I realize then MY works are forlorn
For, the fruits of the spirit are heavens reward!

So I pray, I plead, then I beg no more
My faith in You has been restored.
To walk in the flesh, I cannot win
All alone I am carnal sin.

Please Father…
Forgive my lapse in faith
I cling to You my saving grace!

    I Like Mark 9:23,24
    23Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

    24And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

    Beautiful…how awesome it is to know that God loves us and is willing to forgive us, even when we don’t deserve it. “All alone I am carnal sin.” very powerful verse.


    • Jessie Jeanine Says:

      Thank you Shenine and it’s so wonderful to meet you :) I agree that it’s extremely wonderful ~ the trick for us is to learn how to forgive one another just as graciously. Blessings!

  4. granbee Says:

    Wonderfully soulful poem to express the doubts we all have about ourselves to be held firmly by His Saving Grace!


    • Jessie Jeanine Says:

      Love how you worded that granbee :) It brings to mind that contrary to what I may have been taught (and am still advised at times) I prefer to write in the 1st person, but not because it’s all about me. I do so hoping that when each person reads it, they will be able to relate and personalize it better for themselves. Is it working? =D God Bless!

    This makes me think of the many elderly I work with; those who fear the onset of Alzheimer’s. I often tell them, “you may forget the people and things around you, but God will never forget you.”

    Keep the Faith!


    • Jessie Jeanine Says:

      What a wonderful thing to tell them my friend ~ don’t ever stop! I worked for many years with hospice and senior care, so I remember times like that too. I can’t think of anything more gracious, loving or complete to tell them than what you are and bless your heart for such a Christ like response :)
