REGRETS? revised

by Marijo Phelps  
6/11/2009 / Poetry

My mental list
Of what I did do
Is under the blood
Covered by You.

Troubling me most
Since You set me free
Is the undone list
You had planned for me.

There's the waitress
Not walking in light,
Did you want me to share
With her, that night?

My heart was upset,
A friend let me down,
Were You nudging me
To come around?

I listened to jokes,
But only a few
Though they surely weren't
An honor to You.

Someone gossiped
About my friend,
Did they think I agreed?
Should my silence end?

Those times I argued
Are You talking to me?
Not taking that step
To share liberally.

Satan has lied
Again and again
As I try to die
To the fear of men.

Child, I forgive you
So start a new day
Good choices to make
To start a fresh way

Your life's not over
You've a race to run
You can walk with the best,
Jesus, my Son

Those who don't know Him
Have much to lose,
They need to hear
In order to choose.

I will give you Words
That you need to say,
Courage and wisdom,
To show you the way.

It's not too late
To start anew,
With Holy boldness
In all that you do.

Omissions forgiven,
Ask to be strong,
My Spirit will help you
To right the wrong.

Oh, My Father,
Seeking this gift too,
Your strength and promise
My weakness subdue.

To teach and guide me
To overcome in You
Fresh forgiveness
No sin in review.

How can I thank You
You've covered it still
Stumbled toddler, me
Trying to do Your will.

Exodus 4:12
Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say. (KJV)

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (NIV)

2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (KJV)
