Last Resort? No!

 PAD Challenge day 13: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Last (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.

It is mankind’s best defense
Against worry’s vices
Divine-dealt deliv’rance when
Temptation entices
Bulwark bearing us to God
Transport from our sorrow
Warrior in whispers shod
Lifeline all may borrow
Faith and hope-sweet fellowship
Fading fear’s foreshadow
Quiet haven in the grip
Of heart-bleeding battle
Communion with He who knows
The Unknown stilling waiting
Light where darkness bares its woes
…hunger, hurt abating
Soul-aches searing Cup resigned
Rod of trust and courage
Surrender and strength entwined
Worship’s humble homage
Peace in life’s complexities
And as death releases
Confession and Favor’s pleas
When we pray to Jesus
