I have another poem to share with you. I wrote this a few days ago and I have only shared it with my closest friend. I have been thinking about this poem regularly since I wrote it and today I felt the need to share it with my lovely bloggy friends.
I feel that as an Aspie with dyslexia my differences could sometimes be seen as obstacles. Sometimes the things I can’t do get me down. Also the ways of others and how I am treated can really hurt me a lot. Finding ways through low times is very important for me, as it is very easy to get stuck and not want to climb back out of the pit.
One of the stories that I find very inspiring is the story of David and Goliath. I just love the thought that this young guy, who looks after sheep. A guy who writes poems, Psalms and sings to God while playing along on his harp. Could actually stand against and defeat a nine foot giant of a man, who stands in full armour with weapons. David did this with a smooth stone from a sling shot.
David trusted God and knew God would guide the stone. David also knew what his talents were, even though he was the youngest son he didn’t let what others thought of him (including his own brothers) rock his belief in his own abilities or shake his faith in God. He was quite a feisty young man with plenty of passion for what he believed in.
You can read this story HERE. It is quite short, and very inspiring.
Anyway here is my poem.
Love and hugs. xx 🙂
God will guide the stone
Come close my little one, for you I sent my Son
And I know sometimes it’s hard to trust in me
But I will never leave, I send comfort, I don’t deceive
You have within you my truth to set you free.
Don’t listen to the lies, my word has made you wise
So you can fight, not let the enemy win
The victory I will send, I am your Father and your friend
I gave my Son, He took away your sin
Just trust I’ll guide the stone, and bring you safely home
Your Goliath to me is just a grain of sand
Be like David sing me psalms, I will deliver you from all harm
I have all your days within my very hand
