No Fancy Words  10/29/2018



 



My bank account and wallet are empty



my fridge is nearly empty



It’s been like this for a couple



of weeks, before I get paid.



 



Help me to lean on You



to trust you; know you’re there 



during these recurring difficulties



 



I often feel alone and ugly



quite depressed; these challenges defeat me



 



Lord, let me know you’re there



and that I can talk to you any time, in any way



 



I have chronic pain, and my activities



are often limited, so I spend 



more time in bed than I feel 



comfortable with



 



Christ Jesus, heal me, lift me up, 



letting me know that I can do more 



than I think I can



 



I have so many creative gifts



from you, but I’m often too



down in the dumps to use



them, even knowing they 



will alter my mood



 



Change my heart and spirit



Father God; give me



the push I need 



to fly out of this nest



 



I’m tired of living like this,



Lord, be my helper; that



the Holy Spirit will infect me



with strength; that it will



guide me



 



This is my plea Christ Jesus



Be there for me. Help.

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
