Authority On My Shoulders


I was relaxing at home the other
afternoon, one of my hands was
at the back of my head, my feet
were on the coffee table, eyes
closed and sipping my favorite
beverage
the ringing doorbell startled me
invading my peace

I summoned the person on the
otherside of the door to come in
I hardly recognised my cousin
because of the pain drawn all over
his face

Without hesitation he began to
unpack what had happened
earlier that day
his wife had been involved in a road accident and was in intensive
care

The news tried to amputate the
limbs of my faith but after a while
I gained my composure and cast
authority on my shoulders

We matched to the hospital and I
flung the door of the ward open
and thundered to the enemy to
release his hands off her and he
succumbed to the authority given
to me by Christ Jesus and a couple
of hours later she released from
the hospital fit and strong
Authority is still on my shoulders

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
