Poems in Philippians

this way that wayConvinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, Philippians 1:25



Do faith and “being sure” live together

How do the two of these collide

My surety changes like the weather

My peace likes to run and hide


How does one become convinced 

Decisions are hard to make

My ideas are fully minced

Not knowing which to take


Listen to the counsel of others

There is wisdom to be found

Thankful for the strength of brothers

To keep my feet to the ground


I’ve narrowed my choice to two

Both options look good to me

Still unsure what to do

The future is clouded to me


Convinced of this you say

“I know which way to go”

I look for God’s peace to stay

It’s presence in my heart must I know


A sure conviction is the key

With a present peace that will abide

Both of these find a home in me

Settled restfully side by side
