Why am I bothered? (poems of admonition, By Daisy McLean) Winter 2022

Dear God and Father! Send your Holy Spirit. My spirit needs an uplift in your Holy Presence my God, my Creator.

My task in your sight must be impeccable. This I know for sure Oh God.

Help me Jesus to remain strong in the wilderness.

Help me to seek and remain in You and the Father always.


Your word tells me in 2 Timothy 1:7 that God has given me a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Yet, why am I bothered?


Why am I bothered when someone hurts me or my loved ones intentionally or unintentionally and expects me to live and deal with it?

Why am I bothered when someone rubs off their bitterness and insecurity on me or my loved ones?

Why am I bothered when I meet someone who tries to convince me it is wrong to be kind, respectable and loving, because it is a sign of weakness?

Why am I bothered and why do I even waste my time in arguments when the enemy of our souls attacks my faith and trust in God, through the ones who were trained to hate God’s ways?

Why am I bothered, why am I so bothered?...


Hold me and my loved ones close to you Oh God, my beloved Father.

Through the strength you have given to me in Jesus uplift my soul, give me a sound mind and a fearless heart. This and other necessities I haven’t spot, I am placing in your hands. In Jesus Holy Name. Amen!
