When I Can’t Do It

As we face life each day, we need strength from above. We need the Lord to guide us, to direct our paths, to show us the way – His way …..

When I JUST can’t seem to do it Lord
I know that You can – in me
I thank You that all the things I lack
In YOU, O Lord, I see

As I journey along this heavenly path
No matter what test I face
It’s not about might, nor even power
But patiently running the race

I look at You and it’s possible
New faith begins to rise!
Then I reflect and wonder why
I looked through earthly eyes

Deep down in me, my heart says, “Yes”
When flesh would rather say, “No”
At times You want me, Lord, to wait
When it seems I’m raring to go

I thank You Lord for love that sees
Beyond this fleshly veil
When it seems I can’t, in You I can
Through love that never fails

  1. How may we obtain prints of individual poems. like “My Peace”? The print would make a nice gift for bookmarks.

    1. Dear Franklin

      I must apologise greatly for having not replied to your query. I discovered it quite late and, as you will see, I have not been blogging for some time due to an extremely busy year which left me little time. Thanks for your interest and kind comments on my poem, My Peace. I hope to make this and other poems available soon on Amazon. I will let you know when this is available. In the meantime, you are welcome to print and laminate the poem if you wish. (I would appreciate the inclusion of a link to my blog http://www.christineheart2heart.com.

      Kind regards and God bless you
      Christine
