Tag Archives: Uplifting poems of comfort and hope

Sometimes

 We all go through difficult days of testing, when our faith is tried. Perhaps we don’t always come out on top. I’ve had many of those! But I’m so glad for the precious word of God that never fails and is always there to encourage and uplift. I’m so glad that it’s not about me, it’s all about Jesus. Just as parents, if our children falter, we don’t disown them, they are still our children. In the same way, if we falter, we are still God’s children. He still loves us. We only need to bring our need before Him.  and allow Him to be enthroned in our hearts again .. to  be our focus. Thank You Jesus for your unfathomable love. I wrote this poem in 2015 and …well, I recently had to read it again, for myself!!

~ Sometimes ~

Sometimes we live by feelings
And thoughts we often think
Sometimes we lose sight of the Master
Like Peter, we start to sink
Sometimes we’re plagued with worry
And thrown in disarray
Sometimes disorientated,
When trials come our way.

Sometimes misunderstood,
When trying to do what’s right,
We realise that the battle
Of faith is a spiritual fight
But God is saying “Arise
and shine for your Light has come
Don’t see with natural eyes
LOOK UP and see my Son

Remember, I am with you
My Spirit dwells within
There is no need to fear
In Me, you’ll always win
Just speak the words I gave you
Don’t ever be dismayed
My words of life will save you
I heard the prayers you prayed

Though you may go through trials
No storm can stop my love
In Me, You will have peace
The peace that’s from above
I love you in the sunshine
I love you in the rain
Keep trusting Me, dear child
I’ll help you stand again”

Dark days can never hide Him
His power and love break through
The sun cannot outshine Him
He’s faithful, pure and true
When “sometimes” comes around again
To throw your soul off track
Look up, for the Lord will help you
To take your victory back.

“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)
