A SELFISH HISSY FIT…OR BURN OUT?

She tried her best her way,

He wasn’t ready to play…

Felt he was pushed

Resenting her wish

That he brighten up her way!

He realized he didn’t enjoy,

Hymn-singing when employed…

Supposedly

To break him free,

This tack just made him annoyed!

They were in a dreadful whole,

She said it was his role…

Refusing to pay

Tithe every Sunday,

Their debts took a toll!

He feels it’s her and God,

She says it’s Him with a rod…

Not paying full tithe

Tantamount to a lie,

They have to pay their debts, Oh God!

–Jonathan Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
