The Dilemma

A Poem By Johanna // 4/17/2010

When faced with a decision

Of difficult degrees,

I tried to solve it on my own,

And so pride drove me to my knees.


My heart was weak and sad,

And in my indecision

I bowed my sinful head and asked

For God to be my vision.


I waited hours, days, and weeks,

But just when hope was lost,

He answered me and gave me peace

To follow Him and pay the cost.


Now I shall never doubt Him

For He has spake to me

The words that never shall grow dim -

"I always shall be with thee."



awesome!!! Johanna, well done!

Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

Thank you

I wrote this last year when I was having a difficult time choosing between a year-long serving opportunity and going to youth group and other such things.  I truly wanted to do what God wanted me to do, but it was so difficult when His will seemed to go against what I wanted.  Now, when I look back, I see that God really did know what was best for me.  I am caught up in making the same decision this year, but I'm fairly certain that I will end up serving again.  And this time, I am not hesitating!
