Coffee for Your Heart- A Knock at the Door

 By Susie


My thoughts

Come knocking


In clothes familiar

At my mind’s door

Acting like my friends

And making me

Feel comfortable,

And so I welcome them in,

And they settle down

At the table

To have tea with me,

Then the thoughts

Start preaching you see,

Telling me lies

I so easily believe,

Making me afraid

Then empty they leave.


There is a knocking again

This time it’s you.

You come on in

And unpack your truth.

You tell me I am precious,

That my life has a plan,

That I am valued


Forgiven and then,

You help

To clean up

The mess.

You dust

Each corner

And teach me

What’s best.

With wise counsel

You protect

My wandering heart,

And kindly remind me

That we will never,

ever be apart.


The last thing you do

Before you tuck me in to sleep

Is hang a sign on the door

For my thoughts to read


“This home is guarded

By the Father in love-

No thought may enter here

Unless approved by His word.”


 2 Corinthians 10:5


“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

  1. Lovely words; dusting needs to be done here today. You bring to mind my dear friend Mary. She would say “When troubling thoughts knock on the door, I answer but say, “Thoughts, meet Jesus.”” She loved poetry and would definitely have enjoyed your writing and art.
