You Can Steal

You can steal my happiness
But you can’t steal my joy

You can take my trust away
But faith you can’t destroy

You can take my job today
But not my purpose be

You can make me miserable
But God loves you and me

Even if it’s comes to death
And you kill my body

Still I know that I can rest
In life eternally

My words are bold and I will fail
Through struggles to endure

Let me dwell upon this truth
Gods’ faith in me secure

  1. This reminds me of somethings that Dallas Willard wrote. His definition of joy was “a pervasive sense of well-being.” He also said that, in the kingdom of God, “this world is a perfectly safe place for us to be.”

  2. Daryl, this poem deserves careful, thoughtful meditation. I’m going to print it and put it on my fridge to read numerous times. I want my mind to marinate in the truths. Praise God that in Christ we are secure!

    Thank you for sharing your gift of writing. God bless you.
