Why Delay?

Since He is always listening
With tender love and care
Since ceaseless grace He’s offering
In pain, He’s always there

Since He is always powerful
To save, and heal, and free
Since He gives hope so wonderful
And plants His peace in me

Why delay ’til strength is gone
To pray for help and might?
Why delay ’til all is wrong
To pray for joy and light?

Why not seek and trust my King?
I fail when I’m alone
Why do I delay to bring
My plea before His throne?

I am a nineteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!


  1. Well said, Faith!!! Why do we not ask? I think human nature is such that we try to do too many things in our own strength. Your poem says it very well!!

    Also, I LOVE the updated photo for your blog. You look lovely, peaceful and mature! Purple is a great color on you!!

    1. Thank you! I was just thinking about you today, and how we hope to see you later this year. Mom was telling me and SR about the time when you were 16 and came to visit her at college. 🙂
