I have to wonder
As I ponder
Which is more important to me.
To disappoint the me inside
Or to cause disappointment to those outside.
It’s easier to forgive I think
Causing sadness to those I link.
Then cause a wound deep within,
For all I see then is my own sin.
So often that way so I find
It’s myself it’s hardest to mind.
Forgiving others easy be,
Even if they disappoint me.
So easy then to extend grace,
Why for me the about-face?
Shouldst though not myself extend,
the same willing helping hand?
I’ve yet to determine why I’m so,
All I see is that God knows.
Perfect thought he calls me be,
I know he me through Jesus see.
Thusly even though bad I am,
God indeed the great I AM.
Says to me, Child Mine,
of the great one divine.
Disappoint in self I stand
Still I would hold God’s hand.
Five minute Friday is here again! I’ve napped most the night away but managed to wake up in time to FMF this week. Disappoint is the word given us by the illustrious Miss Kate.
