Heed the Warnings ?

Warning

Philippians 4:6-7
New Living Translation (NLT)

6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.


Warnings

Beware!
There she blows!
Storm’s a’coming!
Look out below!
Timber!
Cigarette smoking can be dangerous to your health!
Buckle up!
Look both ways before crossing!
Don’t drink and drive!
Don’t text and drive!
Don’t talk on the phone and drive!
Don’t forget to brush your teeth!
Don’t feed the bears!
Don’t speed!
Don’t drive too slow!
Stop!
Go!
Yield!

Without all these warnings
And even many more,
Would our destruction
Come for sure?

Would the world stop spinning?
Would the universe come unglued?
What if we all stopped worrying
And enjoyed our lives anew?

Perhaps we wouldn’t need
A cigarette or a drink,
If we laid down our troubles
And took some time to think,

We could ponder all the beauty
In the world to be found,
We might even have a meal
With our families all around,

We could even hug our spouses
Maybe gently hold their hand,
And relish our time together
When we thought each other so grand,

If we could just stop for a moment
Before our days begin,
And be thankful for our blessings
That seem to never end,

Most of all the warnings
Are things we could avoid,
If we merely weren’t in such a rush
And so totally annoyed

Father,

Bless each and everyone with Your presence. Fill us with Your peace and free us all from fear. You are with us…what shall we fear?

    • It’s nice that you’d comment
      And spend some of your time
      Reading my posts
      Reading my rhymes

      It’s nicer yet that with a rhyme
      You’d choose to respond
      So I’ll do the same
      And with a “Thank you” correspond
