Hi, friend! Today I’m sharing a poem I wrote a few months ago: A Confused Heart.
I wrote this poem when I was experiencing a season of confusion and lack of direction. Similar to David in the psalms, I find that when I put my emotions to words and express those to God, it helps me to process my feelings and turn to God in praise.
Please check out my other poems, if you find that Christian poetry is a way that God speaks to your heart.
So here goes:
A Confused Heart
Tangled in a web of emotion
My heart drowns in the turbulent ocean
Of confusing thoughts and feelings
Of contradictory desires and meanings
O that I could return to simplicity
O that I could relinquish my iniquity
Of doubting instead of trusting
Of wavering instead of persisting
Of fighting instead of yielding
Lord, set me free from the mire of despair
Lord, lift me out of this dark lair
Then I will see Your light once more
And praise You Lord like times before
That’s it! If this poem blessed you, pin it!
