The Holy Spirit says “Go!”

This servant acts very slow…

Why does he miss

Spiritual bliss,

When he’s feeling low?

He thinks he can compare

Himself with others there…

Folks in the past

Whose performance fast

Meant they were ALWAYS THERE!

It’s hard for him to breathe,

Does he felt with that he deceives?

Focused on him

Is that a sin,

Something for which needs reprieve?

Scripture says that’s so

And that he ought to go…

Praise his Lord

Being restored,

Wherever that week he may go.

His healing seems his  affair,

His personal choices there…


Making the scene

Without even cutting his hair.

His struggle is within,

A daily choice not to give in….

To Malaise

That betrays

All he’s trying to win.

His friends are all praying

In God’s Love he’ll be staying…

Day by day

Choosing the Way

Providing Hope, not dismaying!

This guy isn’t really a beauty,

He’s a man who sometimes shirks duty…

His depression is real

Effectively concealed,

Making decisions a little loopy.

Self-care a big bugaboo,

Neglecting helpful things to do…

Mega dry skin–

Lotioning has been

Something he rarely will do.

Some things like book delivery

Or consigned selling that he…

Asked about months ago

Move rather slow,

But the stuff moves occasionally.

If he hits a mental brick wall,

Not much will get done at all…

His model train

Needs work again,

But his strategy is to stall.

He is, however investing

In additions that sound interesting…

Like J. Paul Getty

He’s getting ready,

But the bank card really needs resting!

Often putting off the doctor,

His wife has to encourage and proctor…

His taking care

Of his needs there,

At times he’s been so mad he could have clocked her!

(But didn’t)
