Focus Forward - A Poem


Grant time for wounds to heal- -clothed in despair - -
Heal from pain with prayer-in faith and forgiveness
Stand Up and Move On!
Probe yourself for strength
Focus no longer on the past
Consider its lessons- - Time well spent.

Chase purpose and reason
Your way is clearly meant
Seek the truth  of God and His Son
Your back at the wall is no time to stall
God’s word has power
for every hour

God’s face and his mercy
brings everlasting grace.
Your past has no power
only that which you give to it
Faith planted in your soul
Waters the seed
from which you will grow
