TRAPS AND SNARES…by Carl Gooch

Traps and Snares
(Inspired by Micah 7:7)
{But as for me, I will look to the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation;
my God will hear me.}
I know I can’t make it on my own,
So I kneel before God’s throne.
To Him I take my cries and pleas,
For I know that my God hears me.
In my daily prayers and meditation,
God has revealed He is my salvation.
I will trust in Him both day and night,
His promises are proven just and right.
I do not tremble before the lion,
Nor do the wicked find me crying.
Though my enemies surround me,
My Lord is my shield that protects me.
The pain and insults are temporary,
But the love of God lasts eternally.
The world has nothing that compares,
It only offers glitter, traps and snares.
