All I Need

All I Need

A Poem by Faith Anderson

Sometimes when we are curious about choosing to sin and we are tempted, it becomes much easier to go through with it, and oftentimes it can be a trigger for it. Only God can help stop our fall.

i tiptoe near the hole
i lean forward to see how long it goes

how dark it is

could i use a match to light my way?

i could tumble down and say it was an accident

but will i break my body at the bottom?

or will i keep falling until my body gives in?

swirling in the murky waters of my mind
before i can even decide,
the ground beneath me gives way
and i crumble in

down the hole i go

spiraling with nothing to grasp or catch 
nothing to stop my fall

until i feel You rush to my aid
and You raise me up

like the feet of a deer,
I am on solid ground again.

I no longer look for the match to light my way
for You are right in front of me.
