Living from Crisis to Crisis?

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Are you living from crisis to crisis?
And sprinting from shore to shore?
Are you binding up old entanglements,
Only to trip over more?
Closing up wounds that are seeping,
While new ones are on the way?
Does it seem like the moment you might move ahead,
You get lost in another day?
So where is the rest you were promised;
Where is the peace and joy?
Look there! beneath the trials…
A heart that is not destroyed!
A life with a purpose to serve Him,
With faith that is tried and true.
He’s molded, and fired, and purified
A vessel for service…that’s you!
“But he knoweth the way that I take:
when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
Job 23:10 KJV
