Lost Creativity - A Christian Poem
I left my creativity somewhere,
And can't remember just where.
Was it at work?
Did it slide under my desk, a shy, slithery snake?
Or did I drop it in the garden
Between the eager lettuce and the prim parsley?
Maybe it was on the road--
Went spinning off like a loose hubcap.
No, none of those,
And it didn't morph into a UFO
And sail to one of William Shatner's worlds.
No, I remember now.
The Lord said he had a fresh supply for me.
He sounded eager to show it to me,
But I got busy and forgot to pick it up.
Because of the LORD's faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end.
They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!
--Lamentations 2:22,23, CSB
You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and don't receive because you ask wrongly, so that you may spend it on your desires for pleasure.
--James 4:2-3 CSB
