Poem: Trusting in a Higher Calling

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Summary of Poem

Trusting in a higher calling is about listening to a doctors words when he says you have an illness. Deciding to shut out negative thoughts. Embracing only positive ones for no one can determine the beginning or end. Covering the soul in faith accepting you are no different than you were yesterday.

"Rescue" by Lauren Daigle


"Trusting in a Higher Calling"

Heart racing,
beads of sweat forming on her brow,
feelings of anxiety
consuming her thoughts,
listening to each word the doctor speaks,
a million scenarios playing in her mind.

Seeing disparaging eyes,
hearing “I’m sorry”
like she has a death sentence
lingering over her head,
she slams the door shut to negativity
embracing only positive thoughts.

Living each day of her life
trusting in a higher calling,
for seasons have a pathway
which no man can determine
the beginning, nor the end.

Faith covering her soul
like the quietness in the early morning,
erasing her worries
giving her strength to face each day
understanding she is no different
than she was yesterday.
