List Poems


Petty Stuff

Sometimes little nagging things 
Can do more to ruin my day 
Than the seemingly BIG things 
That wants to come my way 
I dwell so much on a petty thing 
That my functions all go awry 
I turn into the “fumble fingers”
Nothing works right and I want to cry
My mind wants to plot revenge 
Something that would my anger quiet 
But a little voice inside my heart 
Tells me that would not be right
So now a decision is needed 
I have got to decide who is in control 
Do I want emotions to run my life 
Or God‘s peace to quiet my soul 
So, I decide to fill my mind 
With good thoughts of all God has done 
Praise and worship to Him send 
For the freedom I have from His Son 
Those little petty things have got to go 
I don’t want absorbed in “petty stuff”
I will allow God to reign in me 
For He really does have Grace enough 
Grace sufficient for it all 
BIG, little or in-between 
Whatever comes from me this day 
God’s glory is what must be seen
