We Never Suffer Alone

We Never Suffer Alone In troubled times I try to remember I’m not alone in my suffering and pain That in every trial, the Lord’s with us all…. And we need not be fearful, fret or complain. Under heavy burdens, Jesus has shown me That others around me may hurt even more. Like mine, their suffering i...

The Light After the Storm

The Light After the Storm When the storms of life pound me And I think they’re never ending, I feel drenched and heavy laden With dark clouds on me descending. The thunder rolls and lightning flashes And the winds are blowing strong, But I’m reminded the Lord is my Refuge And run to that Shelter in...

God Working Through Me

God Working Through Me A Poet’s Thankful Praise My heart rejoices with praise to God For whatever I do and anything I might say That could be a blessing working through me, To inspire and help others along the way. Unexplainable are the blessings I feel, When the Lord puts a song in my heart, Leadi...

A Plain Old lump of Clay

A Plain Old Lump of Clay Hanging that day on Calvary’s cruel cross, Christ shed His precious blood for me. As He took on Himself my sin and shame, My soul was redeemed and I was set free. I had been lost but now I am found, For Jesus has taken my sin all away. He took hold of my life and began to w...

Full and Running Over

Full and Running Over The problems of life at times are brutal Draining our strength, crushing our hope. We struggle with pain, feeling empty and helpless; There seems no escape, we’re unable to cope. These times when we’re weak and bewildered, Feeling empty and we want to give up, If we trust in t...

Sweet Times of Rest and Renewal

Sweet Times of Rest and Renewal Oh how I love to draw away From the hustle and bustle of life; To a quiet place of renewal and rest Away from pressure, worry and strife. At times I may sit ‘neath a shady tree… Feel the soft breeze as its branches sway; Serenaded by the music of chirping birds Flyin...

Re: What would I do.?

Marigold, this is such a beautiful touching poem and I pray it will touch the hearts of many. I'm sure I'll read it again during this week as we prepare for the resurrection of Jesus our Savior.

God be with you always, Shirley[

When My Burdens Fall Away

When My Burdens Fall Away When weighed down by problems and cares of life, I begin to feel crushed as they’re heavy to bear. But standing on the promise, He’s my power and help, Trials and troubles I take to the Lord in prayer. Many are the tools the devil uses As he tries to rob me of peace and jo...

The Precious Hand of God

The Precious Hand of God I find on life’s journey at times the road Becomes dark and miry like sinking sand; Pulling me down ‘til I can’t go on; Weakened, afraid, I can no longer stand. But from miry clay the Lord lifts me up ‘Til I’m safe on solid ground And trusting His Hand holding me close; I k...

Re: Jesus Was Not Guilty

As we look to Easter and the resurrection of the Lord, may we all remember the suffering He bore and the sacrifice He made. He was not guilty. He suffered and died for us, and Easter reminds us that as His death on the cross takes our sin away, the resurection from the grave gave us God's presence i...

It' s awesome to think of the sacrifice He made and the suffering for us but how wonderful to think of his triumph over the grave,...

Willingly Christ Suffered

Willingly Christ Suffered In stillness of soul I sometimes envision Three crosses at Calvary with all its horror. I focus on Jesus, the Man in the middle Dripping with blood in great pain and sorrow. He was sorry for people who would not accept Him, And for a world filled with sin and shame. He gave...
