About this Christian Poet:
Melissa is a poet from Red Oak, Iowa. She is a devoted Christian, a mother of a youth minister and a student, and is a travel writer. "A Personal Psalm" is her first venture into the realm of poetry and she is delighted to have the opportunity to share it with the world.

A Personal Psalm

I may drown, My Lord, as the waters of travail rise and
Encompass my neck,
Lap at my chin,
And lick at my lips.

I may look helplessly around, O God, seeing the destruction of
Tectonic ripples,
Rampaging movements of land,
And furious flooding waters.

And yet I tread, Almighty Savior, with Your ever-present gifts of
Impenetrable shelter,
Titanic strength,
And the absolute courage of Faith.
