I’m honoured to be a Guest Blogger on Blogs by Christian Women and today they published my recent article entitled “Love Beyond Limits”. in which I share some of my life experiences. I pray this will be a blessing to someone …… thanks for reading!
Below is a portion of the article (for full article, click on http://wp.me/p4YjKM-aL):
LOVE BEYOND LIMITS
“There’s something so very wonderful about God’s love. It reaches beyond all the restrictions of the human mind that cause people to close doors to one another (and to Him); restrictions that cause people to go so far and no further, and for so many different reasons – status, culture, appearance, belief systems, disability, etc. The love of God even reaches beyond the limitations we place on ourselves because of past experiences – loss, failure, hurts, etc.
I lost my mother at the age of 18 months. My sister and I were in care for almost a decade and during that time she became disabled. Although she was older than me, ……… ” (to see remainder, click on this link http://wp.me/p4YjKM-aL)
I pray this may be an encouragement to someone reading it today.
Love and blessings,
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)

Note: I posted this poem again, as my earlier posting
(which was as an image) was quite small to read
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”
You make me feel special,
You make my heart glad.
You look after me,
my heavenly Dad.
You know what I’m thinking
and hear when I pray.
You speak words of comfort
to guide me each day.
When oft I need someone
to hold up my hands,
You’re always there, Lord –
and You understand.
You show that You care
in the trials I face.
I know I can always
keep trusting Your grace.
You guide my steps, Lord,
as I travel this road.
You give to me rest
as I give you my load.
Dear Father, I’m glad that
to You I belong.
I thank you for blessing
my heart with this song.
