A Journey into Grief ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Sow In Tears- IBible Verses

God had a plan for me,
a journey into grief
so that I would find
prayer truly brings relief.

He put me on a path,
of death and sorrow
to learn to trust Him
with all my tomorrows.

The agony that I felt,
the anguish deep inside
was a steady reminder
He’s always at my side.

The throb in my heart,
the hole within my soul
made me realize . . .
He’s in complete control.

The road has been long,
the ache is still there
but now I give to Him
my every single care.

Where there was a void,
God’s filled it with peace
though I doubt the pain
will every really cease.

I have been blessed,
in my suffering . . .
just knowing my tears
God is numbering!


My son Glenn died
one year ago today
I thank my Lord and Savior
for making this journey
with me . . .

    Hi Deborah Ann, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son.
    That verse is a song my mother used to sing……..” They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy. For God is still on his throne. And though it seems that your heart will break in two………They that sow in tears shall reap in joy!”
    Your poetry is an amazing blessing to all of us out here in blog land. 🙂

      Thank you Karen . . . it has been quite the journey but Jesus has been with me from the very beginning and I draw my strength from Him each day. . . I love that your mother used to sing that song . . . I have gained such comfort in the verse and have it sitting here next to my computer! ~ Have a blessed day ~

    If you are on FB I invite you to check out While We’re Waiting support group for bereaved parents. I know they would bless you. And your poetry would bless so many in that group.

    Praying for you today. These special days can be harder than others. But we can have joy and healing through Christ!


    • deborah ann

      Yes, indeed the first’s of everything are hard and to be truthful I am glad they are now all behind us. There comes a sense of relief that I cannot really explain but it seems as if a milestone has passed. Today brings hope that all things will be brighter for my family and myself. ~ Blessings ~

    You are precious.. love you x ~ I Am With You Still ~ My loved ones so dear, when I am gone, do not mourn for me too long, be strong, you will probably shed many a tear when I am not here, but never fear, I will always be with you and ever near, a whisper away from your ear. We’ll be together still, in our memories of yesteryear, in what we had to share, in our lives, of lots of happiness, love and care, and for you, I hope it will make it much easier to bare. I will still be out there somewhere….floating about in that big blue sky up above looking down on you with all of my love, or I’ll be fluttering by on the wings of a butterfly or a dove, and when you’re walking by the sea and sand. I’ll be with you still holding onto your hand, in the cry of the wind, and in the sigh of a soft gentle breeze, or I’ll be up in the trees humming along with the bees, or singing a song among the rustling leaves, and at the end of the day, at eventide I’ll still be at your side, next to you I will stay, only a heartbeat away. I will be there when you fall asleep into slumber deep, in your dreams and up in the night sky, twinkling with the stars and moon shining on high. I’ll be there at the crack of dawn and a bright sunny morn, in sun gleams, and dancing in between the sunbeams. I will be among the birds morning song, and in all of life’s busy throng. I’ll be there also in the beautiful colours of a rainbow’s glow, through April showers and in the sweet smell and smiling faces of the flowers, and in the air that you breathe, you I will never leave, in rain, hail, sunshine and snow, with you still wherever you go, and whichever way the wind blows and goes…. our spirits, hearts and souls, thine and mine, will forever eternally entwine, I will be with you still until the end of time,… when we meet up in heaven’s domain, and once more……..all be together again. by Angela Mary Johnson © 20th August 2007

    to say I “like” your post is not the right word—that I feel deeply your sorrow, yet marvel in your trust. . .that my heart reaches out to your’s wishing to give comfort but realizing that there is One who provide the perfect comfort is walking this journey with you—so no, I don’t “like” this—I marvel. . .


    • deborah ann

      Oh, the things God has brought me through this past year has only deepened my faith in Him and made me realize the true power of His strength. I could not walk this alone not even for a moment. I too marvel at the strength that He has given me!! ~ Blessings ~

    I’m so sorry about losing your son. I lost my husband, not quite the same, but the Lord is still our comfort.
