Persistent - Visitor's Poem

by Phyllis Strong
(Georgia, USA)

I’d rather make several mistakes
than not to have tried at all.
I’d rather help the poor in need
than for people to beckon my call.

I’d rather try to climb a mountain
than to be content in a valley all day.
I’d rather do without my wants
than to charge-up a debt I can’t pay.

I’d rather have one friend I can trust
than to have ten phony friends.
I want to be a friend you can trust;
on whom you can depend.

I’d rather step out on faith
than to live in the “wish I would.”
I’d rather be able to give generously;
than to say “I wish I could.”

I’d rather trust God at His word
than not to trust Him at all.
I want to do what glorifies Him;
walking in my call.

The toll road to success is long and bumpy;
I’ll try my best to succeed.
Lord when I’m weary and want to give-up
Please send the helper I need.

©Phyllis Strong
