Flash Friday 55: The Crosses We Bear

Like solid rock on shifting sand
faith is tested
demons wrested
we protested
hanging on to selfishness

Worldly things cause our
ego thrusting
instead of trusting
and readjusting
attitudes toward higher will

Maybe the moral of this
simple story
is take inventory
and behold the Glory
God has in store

“Thy will, not mine, anymore”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Time got away from me this week...many activities gearing up for Spring Break and Easter. I wish I had time to spend on this more but it is what it is and is my free flow verse (with a bit of rhyme) for the day. Have a great Friday!

"ego thrusting
instead of trusting"

5 words that speak volumes—within a 55 that expresses so much. Great work.
