Fraught with Froth

Froth

Luke 8:17
New Living Translation (NLT)

17 For all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all.


Froth

There is a froth
That we’ve come to adore,
Sitting atop a latte
Makes us want more and more,

As we sit and slowly sip
With friends and family,
It makes us think
“How sweet life can be!”

But there is a fierce froth
That’s quite different indeed,
That’s caused by the waves
As they roll in, then recede,

This churning and swirling
Wreaks havoc on the beach,
Bringing up what’s been hidden
What’s been just out of reach,

Our lives are all filled
With such things hidden away,
That will be revealed by the Light
On some future day,

Perhaps it would be better
Than another latte in hand,
To fall on our knees
And confess while we can,

Then life will be sweeter
Sweeter than any libation,
Because we heeded His warning
And accepted His invitation.

Father,

How quick You are to forgive, if we will but repent. Thank You for Your most generous invitation to life. May all who read this accept it and live.
