A poem of encouragement ~ ~ ~
Thank You Lord, precious Jesus, glorious Saviour.
You are more precious than silver or gold!

than he that is in the world”

GOD OF ALL COMFORT
God of all comfort, God of all peace
Send now Your presence ~ bring a release
Wrap me, O Saviour, in Your loving arms
Let Your sweet Spirit bring healing and calm
My broken heart Lord ~ I know You can mend
For You are my Shepherd, My Saviour and Friend!
I need You each hour, each moment, each day
O help me to stand in Your strength, Lord, I pray
I know there’s no limit to what You can do
I’m casting my cares, dearest Lord, upon You
O send now Your presence ~ bring a release
My God of all comfort, my God of all peace
The grace and love of God has brought me through great challenges in my life; times when I could hardly utter words of prayer, just tears; times when I felt weak; times when I felt that I’d failed God just for feeling that way, instead of standing on “victory” ground. God is so loving, merciful and kind. He hears our faintest cry. His comforting presence sustained me. Through Him, I am standing today. Thank You Jesus!! He truly is my Strength, my Comfort and my Fortress. During a difficult season, “God of All Comfort” was one of the prayer poems that the Lord inspired me to write.
Dear Friend, if you are going through trials,
call upon the Lord.
He truly is
the “God of ALL comfort”

Dear Friends, as we journey through life and unforeseen events occur, whether simple or greatly distressing, our faith may be tested – feelings may get in the way – sometimes we may be anxious, but there’s hope …….
As a glimmer of light on a starless night
faith keeps hope alive.
When days seem long and you don’t feel strong,
faith will help you thrive.
Like Winter, Summer, Autumn or Spring,
life brings seasons of change.
As sure as the sun, trials do come,
but friend – don’t think it strange.
Faith sings a song of joy within
for things still yet unseen;
rejoicing in hope, it helps you to win,
so don’t give up your dream.
Hold onto God through faith in Christ
and always sing your song.
The answer will come, just trust in Him,
each day as you journey along.
(Hebrews 11:1; John 15:10; 1 Peter 4:12)

God’s word tells us that
“..this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4).
Through Him, we can still stand. Amen!
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.

Some thoughts for the day:
Dear friends … I just wanted to share with you some thoughts from moments of reflection. While washing the dishes the other day, I stared out the kitchen window and thought about how I used to worry a lot about how people saw me or thought of me. Before I accepted Christ in my life, I used to feel inferior to others. My life circumstances had not been straightforward and this affected my confidence.
When I came to Christ, I felt such peace and assurance. I knew God loved me and felt I was “somebody” in His sight. As time went by, I sometimes worried again about what other Christians thought of me. This may sound silly, but this was my experience. I felt that others were really moving on with God and my progress was slow. But then as my relationship with Jesus grew deeper, through the Holy Spirit, everything changed and I felt greater peace and assurance.
When we see ourselves through our own eyes and think about our shortcomings and weaknesses, or the way we think others see us, we can feel restricted. But when we see ourselves through the eyes of God, receive His love and what His word says about us – we can make that step forward into victorious living, fruitfulness or new beginnings – knowing for sure that we can rely on His strength. Our strength may fail us, His never will.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9a). “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1)
Thank you dear Lord for Your precious love for us. Thank You that You’re always near, ready to supply all that we need and that it’s all about giving You our weaknesses in exchange for Your strength. Help us not to look at ourselves and what we can’t do, but at You and what You can! Amen.
Love and blessings!
