We Forgot


We're so focused on the fire and the burn
That we forget all the stuff we're trying to learn
We forgot about the water that gives rest
Returning us to our brightest and best
We forget about the One who protects and saves
Pulling us from our darkest of caves
We look too hard at the trials we face
Forgetting about His mercy and grace
We get caught in our shame and can't help but cry
And forget that for us He chose to die
We forget that He's God and we simply give in
We forget that with Him against sin we will win

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
