Dear Friends …

“In my distress, I called upon the Lord, and cried to my God for help;
He heard my voice out of His temple,
and my cry for help before Him came into His ears”
(Psalm 18:6 NASB)
This, and more uplifting poems of comfort
can be found in my book
“Comfort & Hope”
available from Amazon.
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!

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……

May all my tomorrows stay there
I need to get through today.
O why should I take on their worries
that never may be anyway?
Why lose the peace that I have now
and strength that I need to survive?
New mercies are mine every morning.
By God’s grace alone do I thrive.
I’ll pen my worries now swiftly
and bring them to Him in prayer.
Today is tomorrow’s history
so I’ll leave my tomorrows there.
