You’ll See At Last

You'll See At Last

Thank You Lord that You are with us in the midst of all our trials
Help us to go through .. with eyes of faith and, having done all, to stand!

1 Peter 1:6-8
In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith
the salvation of your souls.

God Bless You!

God of All Comfort

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,
be encouraged;
call upon the Lord.
He truly is

“God of ALL comfort”

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and
God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our affliction
so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God”

(2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NASB)

Help Them Make It Through

Remembering the bereaved of Charleston, 2015.
Help Them Make It Through
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  ~

Help Me to Lean

Dear Friends,

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.

HELP ME TO LEAN

God bless you richly!

Sing Your Song

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.

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!

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)

In The Shadows

 

sunrise on the mountain

There in the shadows
you feel deep within;
there in the shadows,
just call upon Him.

There in the shadows
His light will shine bright,
taking your darkness
and giving you light.

There in the shadows
when no-one is near;
there in the shadows,
He’ll free you from fear.

There in the shadows
is Jesus the Lord,
with love everlasting
that He can afford.

Under the shadow
of His healing wings,
filled with His wonder
and joy you will sing.

There in the secret place
of the most High,
under His shadow
You’ll ever abide.
