Uphold Me


cropped-file8371286030197-morning.jpg

Uphold me, dear Lord
Guide my feet, lest I fall
Help me never to stumble
And never to stall.
Please help me to trust
In Your goodness alone
Lord help me each day
Not to walk on my own.

For there is no fault Lord
Or failure in You
And there is no limit
To what You can do.
Please wrap me, enfold me
O Lord in your arms ~
Blow storms away, Lord
Let the tempest be calm.

Let peace reign within
When anxious thoughts rise
So I may press on
For that heavenly prize.
Enthroned in my heart
Each moment, each day
Be glorified now and
Forever I pray.

Amen…

A prayer poem from my forthcoming book
“A Closer Walk On The Journey With God”

Hold On

Though beautiful Spring is on the horizon, in some parts of the world it may be dark Winter. Life may be like that too. I pray this poem of encouragement may bless someone …..

HOLD ON

God bless you

You Made It This Far

Autumn morning Oct 06 2013_1014 (1)
You made it this far
though the road was rough,
though trials you faced
seemed more than enough.

Though some days were lonely
and all looked bleak,
you trusted the Saviour
to guide your feet.

At times when it seemed
you could go on no longer,
His word came through and
helped you to be stronger.

He was beside you,
the Star in your night;
so true and so faithful,
Whose burden is light.

He promised to be with you,
right to the end.
Keep trusting in Jesus,
Your Saviour and Friend!

Potter

On our journey with the Lord, it’s easy to forget that all things work together for good to them that love Him (Romans 8:28), which means God can use anything, any situation, anyone to help us become all that He created us to be. We are “God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10 NIV). Nothing we go through is wasted therefore. As we put our trust in Him and allow Him to work in us, though things may take a while to take shape –  it’s win win in the end as we have the encouraging words of scripture that remind us that  “the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more to the perfect day”. (Proverbs 4:18 AKJV)

jar

Thank You, Lord,
for Your arms of love
all around us,
shaping us
for heaven
above.
On solid ground
You keep our feet
as we walk life’s street.
As a potter works with clay,
every day, You’re working to
melt and mold us, till Your perfect
will unfolds; refining, till at last we’re
shining, as gold. Help us, Lord, to
understand. Let this piece of clay, I pray,
be a useful vessel in Your hand,
surrendered and transformed
by Your pure and
holy love.

Where Shall I Go?

Where Shall I Go

 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”
(Psalm 73:25)
