Commit These Works


Proverbs 16:3

Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.


If I’m honest with myself then this truth I can’t ignore

I don’t think I’ve ever done this before

‘cause if I had then these words would flow more free

but as it is this poem threatened to get the best of me

all the ones previous to this found easy ways to  rhyme

but this one was much harder and took a longer time

I have to throw up my arms and admit that I just don’t know

and any words I could manufacture would be just for show

so the best thing to do rather than lie

is just to buckle down and give it a try

I’m tired of being shaken and swayed

of starting over and being delayed

in the past all my works have been committed to me

but if I’m to be established then this cannot be

it is Your glory I want to have in view

so breaking free from the past I commit these works to you
