My Peace

My Peace

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)

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)

Don’t Give Up

DON'T GIVE UP

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”
(NASB)

God bless you !

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!

I’ll Be There

I'll Be There

In all of life, whatever we may be going through, as believers,
the Lord promised He will never leave us or forsake us.
Through His Holy Spirit, He promised to abide with us for ever

Rest In The Lord

Truly My Soul


God’s word is sure for us today,

amidst the storms of life.
He says within our hearts “Be still”
with words of hope and light.
We cannot see tomorrow –
or know what He has planned,
but we can know His peace within
when led by His dear hands.

In humbleness before Him, as
we seek to do His will,
His light upon our pathway keeps
on shining brighter still.
He bids us rest from worry –
He tells us not to fret.
All evil He will banish –
we’ll see His power yet.

His eyes are on the righteous and
He listens to their cry.
We only need to trust Him for
His word He can’t deny.
His word is full of healing –
He’ll take away your pain,
restoring all that you have lost;
you will come through again.

He’ll blow upon the waters and
will cause them soon to flee.
Just hold onto His promises;
keep waiting patiently.
This world is full of struggles –
each day may be a test,
but “Come to Me…” our Saviour says
“and I will give you rest”.

Steadfast Love

file7641289771555

I love you, my child, in the morning.
My love is not quelled by the night.
I love you when you’re in the valley,
or scaling the highest of heights.

I love you when flowers are blooming.
I love you in showers of rain.
I love you when winter is looming
and when summer comes again.

Though sometimes your skies have been grey
or you have been misunderstood,
My love has been present always;
My thoughts towards you are good.

You may have felt strong in the good times
and then have felt weak in the bad.
Perhaps you have tried but failed,
then felt all alone and sad.

You may feel that I’m far away
or wonder if I hear your prayers.
My heart is so touched by your longings.
Each day, I bottle your tears.

I love you, for you’re My creation.
I think about you every day.
I long to bring life and salvation –
to guide you and show you the way.

I long to pour fresh living water
that flows out in life-giving streams;
to arise upon you with My glory,
for then you will dream new dreams.

I’ll not force My way into your heart.
I come through an open door.
I long to bring untold blessings
of life and of peace evermore.
