Aside

Poem by Jill Lemming

(www.ellenbailey.com)

 

Destructive thoughts within our minds

can keep us in despair …

those doubts and insecurities

are not worth the pain they bear.

 

It’s sad to carry baggage

that causes grief and shame …

and in time we come to realize

we have ourselves to blame.

 

We can choose our way of thinking

and ask God to give us peace …

as we pray for a healthy attitude,

our negative thoughts will cease.

 

These human hearts are fragile

and sometimes we can’t see …

it takes some effort on our part

to find worth and security.

 

Don’t let those demons haunt you

and keep you in the dark …

just know that God, who formed you,

loves you just the way you are.
