Pause for Poetry — A Gentle Reminder

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

A Gentle Reminder

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Too often, Lord,

instead of letting You navigate,

I rush around

trying to orchestrate everything myself.

How blessed I am

that you care enough

to point out my mistakes,

to discipline me, and

to direct my paths.

You gently remind me

that Your yoke is easy

and Your burden is light…

that I don’t have to prove myself,

nor compare myself

to others.

I only need

to please You.
