Wasteland

My mind is like a vast wasteland
Just waiting to be filled
With all the things Jesus wants me to know he has planned
So my wisdom can be more skilled.

I try to read my Bible more so I can understand
Just what He went through when He was but a man.
He had to be born to earth to die for me and you.
I wish I had known him then maybe I would know what to do.

Things are not always what they seem to be
It depends on how we look to see
Do we look through our Saviors Eyes?
Or are we ever that wise?

Fill your mind with God and love
And thoughts will come to you from above
Wisdom, grace, comfort, and peace
You will get them all and find release.

Pray each day for loving grace
That you might one day look upon his face
And see the love He has for you
He will fill your mind with loving too.

Don’t let your mind and soul go to waste
That would be in very poor taste.
Let God reside in your heart and mind
Then in the Book of Life you name will be signed.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
