Lighthouse poetry contest. Prompt: Psalm 31:24 in free verse.
I Am the Lord




Be of good courage”, he told me.

My life is at risk and my future uncertain.

Yet, when have I failed to have courage

or trust my Lord? Never.


Untrue, a voice whispers to me.

You relied on your own thinking,

taking what was not yours, then

tried to hide your sin from Me
.


Be of good courage, he repeated,

and He shall strengthen your heart.”

I have been living in His strength.

Why must I see everything go wrong?


Again, the whisper came. Did you expect to

Choose your grief? You invited these

Consequences—and knew you would

See sorrow. Again you regret your choice
.


All you who hope in the Lord”, Joab finished.

I can only hope in Him and pray He rescue me.

I am weary of suffering and loss and cannot

Save myself. Lord, please grant me mercy.


I will see you safely home again, David.

I set you on that throne and provided all

You possess. I grant My mercy to you;

Yoi remain a man after My heart.


I Am the Lord.



Prompt: PSALM 31:24

Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.
