I Take it All to You

When my emotions drift and flare

And I can’t see beyond my sight

I take it all to You in prayer.

 

In times of stress, in great despair,

You are the One who makes it right

When my emotions drift and flare.

 

Identifying day’s nightmare

As doubt or fear creeps, I hold tight

I take it all to You in prayer.

 

My thinking sometimes weaves a snare

Yet You will offer wisdom’s light

When my emotions drift and flare.

 

I box myself inside a square

Your strength allows me to take flight

I take it all to You in prayer.

 

In circumstances dark or fair

You’re with me to my heart’s delight

When my emotions drift and flare

I take it all to You in prayer.

 

But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism, it is unwavering and without hypocrisy. (James 3:17)

  2. Beautiful! I love the freedom I feel in this poem. We can acknowledge the tough feelings and thoughts but we don’t have to be imprisoned by them. Instead, we can bring them to Jesus. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Exactly, Lucas. When we take everything to God, He helps us through it, whether it’s feelings or circumstances. And that is freedom. ❤
