Poetically Speaking by Patty Lynn is made up of a variety of poetic stories from the author's perspective. Some concern themselves with the day-to-day, some with unique experiences but whatever the author's theme, the reader is transported to a different place. She's able to draw you in, make you look at things differently and leave you with a new way to interpret what might be a shared experience. Many times she's funny, sometimes clever, but she'll always leave you better than when you came.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN WORRIES OVERSHADOW YOU?
“For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for
you against your enemies, to give you the victory." Deuteronomy
This life we live is riddled with what we consider worries That sometimes come
infrequently but often come in flurries Of things we never would
expect, the worst kind of surprises. We’re unprepared, why aren’t
we spared, are these what God devises...
To keep us on our toes and
see just how will we respond? Will we first try to handle it, while we should seek His bond… And bring our worries and
our cares and lay them at His feet. Why is it after all this
time we give God a backseat?
We should have learned that
Jesus earned the grace that makes a path Straight to the Father’s
open-door no longer to find wrath. Instead, we find His loving
arms and better yet relief From all our worries and our
fears, He only asks belief…
That He is there, our Lord
and God with all His power and might To fight against our enemies
of sorrow, worry, fright. And since He is, we know
that He will win the victory… Against the unexpected
things that plague us so we see…
That He is who we go to first,
not let those worries fester, But rather count on Him who
says He’s always our protector. He cannot wave a magic wand,
make problems disappear, But He can hold us close to
Him, give comfort when He’s near.
Believe the words He tells
us all, cast all your cares on Him. And all your worries will be
fought, His power will not dim. He loves and wants the best
for you, there’s nothing He can’t do, So bring your worries &
your fears and He will see you through!
