Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

D is for Doubt

Doubt don’t got to dominate.
Doubt don’t got to rule.
Doubt is not the potentate.
Doubt is but a tool.

Doubt will help you measure
Your discipline and depth,
Your devotion to your treasure,
The fullness and the breadth.

Don’t follow doubt’s creation
To let it weigh you down.
With dogged determination
Defend your solid ground.

When doubt dangles its discordance,  
Deal doubt a diligence blow.
Depose doubt’s clanging dissonance.
Go to what you know.

Dedicate yourself to deepness.
Truth and triumph will console.
Your decision for completeness,
will guide you to your goal.

  1. Great topic for today's letter! Doubt is such a powerful force, one I've unfortunately battled quite a bit lately, and can cause so much harm. Your poem is very uplifting, well done!

  2. First I want to thank you again for your encouragement on my post...and then I came to read yours and it was exactly what I needed because "Doubt" reared it's ugly head when I read the "other" comment. I hope you read my "E" post because you inspired it. God bless.

  3. It can really be a horrible thing doubt. I think God wants us to reach our full potential and we certainly can't do that if we are constantly questioning everything in our lives. Trust in The Lord and do not lean on your own understanding,

  4. I agree, Jen. I think that we need to take our doubts right back to the Lord.
