A wonderful refuge and shelter is found in the Lord Jesus Christ,
as expressed in my poem “Where Shall I Go?” above.
“Whom have I in heaven but thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee”
For yesterday ..
I thank You, Lord.
There were years that seemed
just like a dream.
There were life-changing scenes.
But I’ve come to know
that You allowed me to go
through that maze,
those difficult days,
You were there always.
You helped me grow,
You kept me strong –
like a tree amidst the storms.
You had hopes for me
when the future I couldn’t see.
When I despaired,
so misty was the view
until I saw You,
looking down from heaven –
showing You care.
Nothing compares with Your love.
You saw my heart and
picked me up.
I owe everything to You.
For all You’ve done for me,
Lord, I thank You.
