This is the second poem I wrote during a poetry workshop at the Oregon Christian Writers’ conference last Saturday.
Lord, I’ve heard that You are light
then wonder why I close my eyes
and walk in darkness
as if I were deep in a cavern
without a headlamp or even a match
Stumbling, stubbing my toe on a rock
in plain sight if only I’d look
with the eyes of faith You’ve given me
But I don’t
I choose to stumble instead
and then complain about the pain
of a broken toe or a bruised ego
How long, O Lord, will I walk in darkness?
You are my headlamp in this dark cavern of life
brighter than a million, billion matches
and I long to see
the way, Your way
Help me find Your light
So heart felt and Psalm like , Linda! Thank you for sharing your work here and ministering to us. God bless you!
