There’s a promise in the Bible for you;
the answer to your heart’s cry,
Dear Friend – if you open its pages
and just read .. you’ll soon see why,
Despite the despair and the darkness,
there is hope for you today,
and it’s found in the Lord Jesus Christ
for all who will call on His Name!
A good place to begin to find out about the love of God
is by reading in the Bible the gospels, found in the New Testament.
(eg. start with St John)

St John 3: 16
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life”

God bless you !
This journey called `life’ has its fair share of struggles, trials and battles. As we all know, the load can be so heavy at times. Now when I’m out shopping with my husband, sorry – HE has to carry the heavy bags, NOT ME! If I do it, I’m putting my back at risk. It’s too much. But there are times, during life’s trials, when it can be so easy to try “managing it” – you know, “getting by”, “coping” with it all. Then one day, suddenly, the load is overwhelming.
Too many times, I have forfeited the peace and rest I could have had in Christ, just by giving Him my “heavy bags” and handing my load over to Him. But the precious loving heart of Jesus, once again, melts mine, as He whispers words of peace within, or speaks through someone, or His word, saying “trust in Me”. His precious love inspires me again and again. Recently, He inspired me with the words of this poem: “Help Me to Lean”. I pray this will bless your heart.
God bless you richly!

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)
“A Day Is Coming” is published in my book

It’s a New Year, a New Day, dear friend. Whatever yesteryear may have brought, take courage …there’s hope in the Lord. The following is a poem of encouragement from my poetry book, Comfort & Hope, and is written like a “letter of love” from the Lord, as an expression of His compassionate heart. Take a quiet moment to read … and let Him speak to your heart…..
Whatever we go through in life, it’s wonderful to know
that the Lord’s heart of love is always open and
His arms are always ready to welcome and embrace us……
The poem above is the first in my second book of inspirational poems

God bless you,
Be strong and of good courage.
Don’t let the sights dismay.
He’ll be there in the battle.
He will not let you stray.
If the Lord our God is for us,
then who can be against?
For He’s our Mighty Fortress;
our Shield and our Defence.
No weapon formed shall prosper;
no judging tongue succeed.
In Christ we are forgiven;
our righteousness is He.
Hold fast to His mighty word,
for greater is He in you
than he that is in the world.
The Lord will see you through.
(Joshua 1:9; Isaiah 54:17; Romans 8:31; 1 John 4:4)
