A poem of comfort … based on the words of Jesus in John 14:27, John 16:33 and Matthew 28:20. Time is rolling along fast. Things are happening everywhere, just as the Lord forewarned. The darkness is increasing, but let’s arise and shine! Let’s hold onto the words of our Saviour, Jesus, the Prince of Peace, in this world of tribulation. Be encouraged, dear friend. He promised all who believe that He would never leave us or forsake us. Precious Lord .. fill our hearts with Your peace ~ Amen.
~ ~ ~ This poem, and many more poems of encouragement, are published in my 2nd book of poetry “COMFORT & HOPE” available from Amazon (ISBN-10: 1500139696)
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”
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 ~
