The Book


I do love books
Passion, heroes, horror, suspense
            insights and wisdom
So much you can get from
            opening up a book
Just pick your theme
            the book shelves are full
From what to do, to how to do it,
            to who I am
yet there is one book
            I find it too often left to
            collect dust
Your book,
God’s word,
my bible.
Surprisingly full of so much
            wisdom and strength
            for my life
Yet I often don’t take the time
            to read it.

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness
and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Matthew 6:33

Lord help me to seek your will, through prayer, devotion and Bible study
