Don’t Give Up.

I have a frail heart,
It quits a lot.
I have written it down on my notebook in bold red: ‘BE A FINISHER.
As you well know it is one thing to write down and another to act. I am only very good at one of these things.

I have a frail heart,
It quits a lot.
Yet I am thoroughly dependent on it to make a right decision and stick by it.
At the end of the day, I have lists and lists of ideas I want to take up and not even one is connected to the other.

I have a frail heart and one lingering idea,
I have quit this particular idea a lot of times that if quitting was to be embedded on my forehead, it would burn right through my skull.
I have piled many more ideas on top of this one yet it is the one that remains sure like a seedless tangerine.

I have a frail heart,
It quits a lot and even in knowing this, I count on it more than I count on the Maker of me.
I have a frail heart that can be mended, only when I quit my ways and surrender to those of God who knows me best.

I have a frail heart,
It quits a lot and it may quit every night when I go to bed but I’ll pick up where I left off and keep on in the morning because it is not my frail heart but a mighty God who’s got me.

I have a frail heart,
But that’s not all I have.
I have Jesus Christ.
