The Depth of God’s Mercy ~

When I am knee high,
in grief and sorrow
when I am anxious
about each tomorrow.

I look at the span,
of God’s mercy . . .
instead of the extent
of my worry.

When I am waist deep,
in the vast unknown
when fear’s grip
clinches my backbone

I look to the depth,
of God’s grace . . .
instead of the expanse
of the dark space.

When I am as low,
as I can possibly go . . .
I look to the favor
God on me bestows!

~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come
boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Love Released Me ~

Love released me,
from the mire
took my life
lifted me higher.

It picked me up,
when I was down
it stood me up
on firm ground.

Love pulled me,
out of the pit
took my heart
raised my spirit.

It hoisted me,
in faith and hope
It boosted me
in trust to cope.

Love removed,
my doubt and fear
Love came down . . .
to draw me near!

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.

Pressure Cooker Faith ~

Pressure cooker faith,
always in a hurry . . .
often blows a gasket
in its frenzy flurry.

Frantic and strained,
always under duress
pressure cooker faith
holds inside a lot stress.

Pressure cooker faith,
full of nervousness
bursting at the seams
in the stew anxiousness.

Strives so very hard,
to control its composure
pressure cooker faith
can’t help but boiler over.

Pressure cooker faith,
always ready to blow
needs inside instead . . .
God’s peace to flow!

~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.
The Lord be with you all.

When Feeling Restless ~

 

When you are restless,
feeling uneasy
when your faith starts going
from strong to measly.

That is when you will need,
to surrender your unrest
to a God who is waiting
to give you perfect rest.

When you feel anxious,
and nervous are your thoughts
when fear starts to churn
your stomach into knots.

That is when you will need,
your heart and mind to adjust
in a God who is able
to strengthen your hope and trust.

When anxiousness comes,
making you feel restless
ask God to bring to you
His peace that is endless!

Psalm 16:9

“Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.”
