“JUST THINKING…” September 12, 2015

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts; and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”  Psalms 139:23,24

I share the following poem with you from one of my mom’s books. -anita


The thoughts I think may seem my own,

But unleashed by my lips, to the wind are sown.

Some thoughts I think I long to say,

But to loose them from my heart, I find no easy way.

When they well up inside, they I seem to hide,

Lest others mistake the thoughts I spake,

And taking them, twist them, making hearts to break.

Dear Lord, make my thoughts all they ought to be.

And help me dear Lord, that others may see,

What will lift up, and bless, ever pointing them to Thee.


“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”  Psalms 19:14
