Empty Worry

From Psalm 37:39:  “The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their refuge in the time of trouble.”

Evil creeps into lives

Subtle in its motives

Fueling empty worry

Steaming locomotive


Walking endless circles

Worry filling each breath

Joy fading like parched grass

Hope withers into death


Come to God, trusting Him

Angels watching over

During times of trouble

Peace-filled, greenest clover


Lord’s refuge, hope reborn

Worry dims, mercy’s peace

Love sharing His goodness

Grace solves each puzzle piece


Walking God’s righteous road

His comfort soothes each soul

Empty worry exchanged

Forgiveness makes us whole
