Poetry Moment: What a Woman!
Thursday, October 09, 2008
A heart of immeasurable aptitude still able to give when there is nothing left
Always considering the needs of others, before she does for herself
Daily prayer for her family, her friends, and her enemies as well
Willing to give it another try even after she has failed
Crying out to the Father on those nights she feels broken, battered, and abused
Asking God to lead her down the right path, where she needs to be used
A broken heart, a shattered dream, but still she manages to strive
The scars of her wounds are clearly visible, impossible for her to hide
Yet she's fearless, clearly a woman of faith, because God is ordering her steps
For she knows that being a woman of God she is surely kept
She will never surrender to the hands of the enemy, she will never give in to smite
For she is familiar with the miracles of God, many are performed in her life
Through wind, rain, trials and tribulations she will never fret
For she knows that "God" is not through with her yet
