It began to astound me, I cry out, oh God help!
Truth has become a catch phrase of Hell!
Man has his face in the gutter with his booze!
Woman is killing herself for the fountain of youth!
Children with no interest in conversation or humanity!
Babies without voices filling up the heavens!
Churches re-phrasing God’s word to suit their situation!
Politician ‘s rumors and counter rumors spew!
Evil’s darkness lies in wait for a chance to consume!
The one in the shackles is the only one free in the room!
It begin to astound me that I must always agree with you
Or be outcast as a biggot or hatemonger or shrew!
So I will trust in the purity and promises of God
Who is good and loving in all his ways!
I will search the horizon both morning and night
for that final wave to break upon the shore
when there will be no dying or crying anymore!
For it is a fool who says there is no God!
Yet I am astounded even more at His ever lasting love!
His mercies are new every morning!
I count each day to be the day of His glory!
May this be the time my faith will be sight!
Was there ever a more astounding day to ponder!
“…but you, oh child of God flee these things and pursue godliness, faith, love patience, gentleness. Fight the Good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were called and have confessed…” 1 Timothy 6:11

I can relate to this, Jill. I’ve allowed myself at times to be distracted by so-called liberal progressive preachers/authors. Now, I always turn to God’s word. This is an excellent poem.
Yes in these end times our discernment will be key in our daily walk as never before. Over fifteen million evangelical women follow women authors, speakers etc on social media and many of those teach incorrect our “re-phrased doctrine.” These are serious times and we need the Holy Spirit’s guidance more than ever to weed through it all. Thank you for your interest in these issues!
Thank you for your guidance. x
Well done, Jill! I love the contrast between the first and second verses. The world IS full of darkness; praise God for his Light!
Thank you Nancy! Appreciate your input!
