One day I had a little fret
A worry wanna-be
Its goal in life to become fear
And to discourage me
Until I took it to my God
And laid it at His feet
In my prayer I asked for peace
Release from fret’s deceit
I thanked God for His answer then
Knowing He is faithful
I saw fret flee away from me
And my day was peaceful

Those little worries can undercut us if we don’t know where to go for help. And He’s always online!
Very sweet little poem with a sing song quality 😉
Oh so true.. God only knows and feels
True.. humans make the guilt..
the greed.. the jealousy..
the pride.. the envy..
attempt at Separation..
little do they know
THAT is all
in losing.. but
and Light or GOD
as GOD rules wITh US
and not against US when
TRULY LIGHT AS FREE.:)
God can definitely take those frets in our life away…if only we would lay them at His feet!
Frets are for guitars. Nice one!
That’s awesome! I’m going to remember that one. Peace, Linda
