Praise Always

Deep inside the earth
Is built up power
Released by the volcanos 
That ultimately devour. 

Just like our past
With frustration
Building up inside
With agitation.

Causing us to react at times
When our thinking
Was in the wrong direction;
Not having an inkling.

Instead of thinking 
Of good going our way
That builds momentum
Throughout the day.

Gaining an edge
To staying on track instead
As we go along the path
And step ahead.

    If you stand up to problems with optimism and ask God to help, you will overcome them. Be freed from pessimism and read today’s poem to begin your day stepping ahead on the journey with confidence.

  2. Indeed. May we stay on track. May we step ahead.

    Blessings.
