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.
