You go to church and feel His love
All is well in heaven above.
Then Monday comes.
Then Monday comes

The problems you face on the first work day
Seems to last forever and won’t go away.
For Monday’s here.
For Monday’s here.

The real world’s there staring you in the face
How you going to manage without God’s grace.
For Monday’s here.
Is God near?

Relax and trust God, He can take you through
Give Him your trust in what you do.
For Monday’s here.
But God is near.

Is your peace deep enough for the real world now
Can you trust Him enough to not have a cow.
For Monday’s here.
And God is near.

Let His peace settle over you in the quiet of your life
Open faith’s door and let out the strife.
He waits at the door.
Go open the door.

Now don’t you feel better since you’ve talked to God?
The stress level’s down, you can feel it in the bod.
For He’s with you now.
So now you know how.

    It started out to be light hearted but something happened along the way.

    I love the peaks and glimpses into the lives of others with the facades lowered, allowed inside to take a look at your trials, and thereby our own, Love the way the poem guided you, and not you it. You let the poem write itself unfolding yourself to its art, relating who you are: exposed. And what happens washes over us, for the “us” is always unchanged there inside us made in his image, and what is made is made beautiful.

    We think we are alone and no one else has the difficulties we have. I love your words. Thank you Master Martin.

    Inspiring … my own story is similar. Thank you! A good friend once told me….leave your problems on the altar and let God do the rest. No need to pick them up again. And with that I have found peace. Your poem expresses the same adage.

    It was written with a RAP tune going through my head. And I REALLY dislike RAP. As I have told my kids when they were listening to the radio… that sounds like Certified RAP. Enough of that.
    The title came from a message on Sunday morning. My pastor spent a week at a retreat center and the Nun in charge of him ask during that time, this question. By the time I left the service, I run the sound and hear it twice, this was written.

    I am very happy you like it. I ask myself this question often. And if not, why not. Let it go and get on with life. It is too short and getting shorter.
