Poem For Inner Peace That Lasts

Poem For Inner Peace That Lasts - Steve Wickham

Why fret over the immoral, they're but a vapor,
They're grass that's often mowed, there's no reason for envy, for they'll soon be cut down,
Trust, delight in and commit yourself to your Higher Power,
And righteousness, justice and equity will soon be yours.
Don't fret for any reason it only brings you undone,
It's only the meek, and those who hope and wait on God who'll end up inheriting the land,
Just know the peace that transcends human understanding,
The Lord laughs at those who go against you, cutting them off... trust him and see.
It's better to have nothing and know God, really it is,
For less is more and more is less in God's economy, as he gives and takes away,
He gives life to his giving set-apart ones, as they live for others,
But the taking selfish others vanish like smoke without an affirming memory.
Fear's only fitting when it's toward God,
Awesome respect for this life, his wonder, plus his provision and care,
The way to keep faith with him is not spending time with the corrupt,
Being prudent regarding who you knock around with is vital.
We're never always right and often we're wrong,
There's nothing wrong with that,
Sometimes when you're wrong you can be handled as if you were right all along,
It's having a commitment to grow all through life that matters.
Trust yourself to the Lord,
And wait patiently for him,
He'll show you the way to wisdom and life for others,
And release you from the hell of self you live in today.
For the hell of self is a trap for all,
Delighting in the Lord however, is the key to a fulfilling life,
Play by his rules of grace and truth,
And godly virtues, joys and pleasures will soon be all yours.
