Remembering the bereaved of Charleston, 2015.
Dearest Friends, I wrote this poem in 2012, but revised it recently on behalf of the dear family, friends and loved ones of the dear souls who lost their lives in the terrible massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston recently. In times of grief, it can be very hard for many to cope. This poem is in support of the bereaved and any who may have suffered the loss of loved ones in terrible tragedies such as this.
Though the media spotlight may be gone, thoughts of you remain in our hearts
~ GOD BLESS YOU ALL ~

A day is coming, take heart, dear friend
A day when trouble at last shall end
When Christ shall gather together His own
To be with Him ever in heaven’s sweet home
When sorrowful tears He will wipe all away
When pain shall cease in that endless day
When loved ones again will see one another
Fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers
Aunts and uncles, daughters and sons
Grands and greats, everyone!
Where there will no more be clouds of the night
Where Christ, the heavenly Lamb, is the light
Where joy and gladness forever will reign
When Jesus our Saviour shall come back again
Keep walking with Jesus and never give in
Each day, He’ll give you the grace to win
That day is coming. Look up and be strong
Hold on to the end, for it won’t be long!

Week by week, month by month, year by year, trouble everywhere is increasing. Scripture is being fulfilled before our eyes. But amidst the darkness of this world, the light of hope in Christ is shining. Be encouraged dear believers – a change is coming. God’s Word shall not pass away.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation:but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“..if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”. (John 14:3)

**** God Bless You !! ****
If waves of sadness flood your soul,
take courage friend.
When nothing seems to help console
it’s not the end.
The One Who holds your hand today
will be there tomorrow.
He’ll make the darkness light and He
will lift your sorrow.
When you feel that the prayers you pray
are just a token.
The Lord will still be listening to
the words unspoken.
His everlasting love for you
will never wane.
He longs to mend your broken heart.
He knows your pain.
Though time has swiftly moved along,
there’s hope anew.
The Lord will never let you go,
He cares for you.
When you are all alone, remember
He is there.
Reach out and call His precious Name
for He is near.
“O Jesus, precious Jesus – Lord
I need you now.
O let Your waves of peace flow over
I come just as I am for I know
You are Love.
My help comes from You Lord of earth
and heaven above.
O lift my soul that I may joy
in You again.
I’m trusting in You Lord, for You’re
my greatest Friend”
(Psalm 121:1-2; Psalm 139: 1-17; John 8:12)
