To simply make light of another one’s plight
Is like leaving them out in the rain
But from 0-10, we’re told to say “When”
So the doctor can find the pain
While one may get by, another may cry
Not everyone is the same
The soul is a place where we all need grace
Again and again and again
One soul may carry a load today
And then shed that load tomorrow
But what of the one who beneath the same
Also carries a load of sorrow
Some may be feeble, some may be strong
Some may be slow, or may speed
God knows how much each person can bear
And can help at our point of need
He knows our fears .. He bottles our tears
And encourages us to be strong
Forever to put our trust in Him
Believing it won’t be long
So whatever it is, whether great or small
Let’s listen with hearts of love
For “Blessed are the merciful” Jesus said
For they’ll have the same from above
Jesus said: Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy” (Matthew 5:7)
One person’s sufferings may look light to another,
and in their eyes be minimised,
but who knows the whole picture? Only God.
He knows the capacity ~ because He made the container.
He offers hope to help us cope.
Who wants to be a candle, that shines in a lowly place? Who wants to be in the shadows, where nobody knows your face?
Ploughing behind the scenes – and sowing seeds of love? Such a heart is precious to our heavenly Father above.
Who will keep on giving their best for no return, to help someone keep living, though long-lost love they yearn?
There are so many people who may have been ignored, who need to know that they are loved – it’s precious to our Lord.
While stars on high above us in celestial realms do glow, remember, it’s because of dark surroundings that they show.
Now every soul is precious – and needs to know we care. When seeds of love have blown their way, they’ll spread them everywhere.
So let us not be weary in doing well, dear friends. The season yet will come if we hold steadfast to the end.
As blossoms follow sunshine and also showers of rain, we’ll reap if we keep sowing seeds of love – again and again.
