I need to be delivered from me

I need to be delivered from me
I have fed so much
And now I am overweight
All efforts to shed the weight proved abortive

Oh that it be weight only I am struggling with
I am also laden with parasites
They want to suck life out of me
The battle to rid myself of them is on
I get weary of the battle and I want to give up


Weights and parasites!
They consume my time, mind and body
When will I ever be free of them?
I try to strip but give up too early
I try to run but tire easily
Oh! I want to quit

I hear a voice telling me I can make it
I look and I don’t think so
I hear a voice telling me don’t quit
But what I see discourages me
Oh the spiritual fat and parasites

I need to be delivered from me
But how?

I hear a voice say, “focus”
I ask, focus on what?
I hear a voice say, “You mean focus on whom?”
Hmm… I am listening

Focus on him who had gone before you
Study how he did it
He knew where he headed
He never lost sight of it
Despite the challenges he faced
He never lost sight of where he headed

I hear a voice say, “Focus”
Look away from spiritual fat and parasitic sins
Focus on him at all times
Someday, you will see fat and parasites no more

I need to be delivered from me
I hear a voice say, “Focus’

  4. I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are
    too quick for newbies. May just you please lengthen them a little
    from next time? Thanks for the post.
