MY LORD HE IS NEAR

Post by Linner » Mon Nov 16, 2009 6:37 pm

I WROTE THIS THE DAY THAT BUSTER WENT TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. I JUST FOUND IT AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.


MY LORD, HE IS NEAR

In the face of all worry
My Lord, He does care
If I need someone near me
My Lord, He is there

When my trials seem endless
And they just won't end
I can face them with pride
For His strength He does send

And when I am tired
O' life pulls me down
I think of My Lord
When thorns were His crown

He hung from a cross
With nails in His hands
Prayed up to His Father
They don't understand

I know I am forgiven
And when I have fear
My Lord will be with me
He'll always be near...

O’ the love I have for Him
I’ve put in a rhyme
For this love won’t grow dim
It will last for all time

What a beautiful "rhyme" for the Lord of your life. A beautiful sonnet so filled with love and honest respect for the suffering He did for each of us. I am so thrilled to see these writes coming from your heart, Dear Linda. You seem so at peace and your contentment is very noticeable.

With your great talent, it is wonderful to see how great your love is and just how beautiful it looks on you and how lovingly you have shared it. May God continue to send you His words of love that you give back to Him in such a wonderful way.

Love you,
Karen

And all it took was for this stubborn woman to realize that the time had truly come to lay down the burden so that Jesus could take it up and hand it to God. When I think on my persistence in refusing to forgive and to carry my anger to the Gates, I can only jerk my head a bit and give a slight back and forth nod, and think " How long, Lord...oh, how long it took me to finally let it go so that I could lift my eyes to you without this in my way. I thought I knew what I was doing....oh my. And now, ??? Oh, now, I understand that saying, "Blinded by the Light "!! I have eyes in my soul that were in the dark for so long with this anger, that when they finally got to walk out of the dark into the Light, I needed sunglasses..LOL !!!

Ahhh...at least I got it before my time was up !! Thanks, Karen, my love !!

Love, Linda :D :lol: :wink:

The tears are falling from my eyes as I feel the sincereity in your heart. None of us will ever understand why it takes us so long to give Him our life. I guess we truly think that we are going to be asked to give us something that we don't want to miss out on. But, there is nothing we could ever give up that would ever be as wonderful aS being a child of the King.

He replaces any "thing" that we think we are sacrificing with so much joy in Him, they we could give everything we owned and never miss it, If He will only touch us just for one moment in time. I rejoice in this, Linda. My heart is so full right now.

PRAISE OUR GOD!!! YOU HAVE COME HOME. WELCOME TO BEULAH LAND!

I LOVE YOU,
KAREN

Hi Linda, I don't know how I missed this, but I did, but not entirely. So glad I saw and read this Linda: it is very touching as I felt the love of GOD for you in between the lines, as well as your undying love for Him. Just beautiful! -Holmesy
