He Will Take Your Anguish

This is the second time in a week that I have been to a funeral ....and seen so many tears flow...but have also heard of the Comforter who dries the tears ....

A Time For Everything ...

A Time to live and a time to die ... Ecclesiastes 3 v 2

Yesterday I was at another funeral of an elderly friend from my church ... She too had suffered long as had Rita ...the friend who died a week before ... and now, for those who believe , they have woken in Heaven and have met each other again ...

For Marie , it would have been a special reunion with her husband who had died twelve years before ...and I know he was in his heaven with the Lord , because I had had the privilege of praying with him many years ago , when he accepted Jesus as his personal Saviour .

But there are still many in this world who are sad , and who are grieving the loss of loved ones , and who are suffering loneliness and heartache every day...

As I was thinking about that subject I penned these words .....

Liquid Love Flows From His Gaze



You cannot look in the face of God - and
Doubt that He is there - for liquid love flows
From His gaze- that tells you of His care -
That burns in the recess of your soul - and
Cleanses away all the dross - as the Glory
Of His Majesty - replaces all that
Is lost .

As God Is Always Near




Right now - you may seem so alone - bereft of
Loved ones dear - but don't give in to grief my
Friend - as God is always near - and He will take
Your anguish - and mend your heart that is rent
In two - and gently He will lift you up - and
Console - and cherish
You .

Lifting Me Above The Pounding Waves



How can I know to say such things - that I am
Writing here ? - if it were not for my Saviour's
Love - and His comfort - through the years - that
have seen me through my troubles - and have
Kept me from all harm - by lifting me above
The pounding waves - into His
Mighty arms .

I've Known Torment ,Trials And Pain



Had I never known of heartache - nor felt the
Lashings of despair - I may never have known
My Father's love - nor ever felt Him near - but -
More than I can care to say - I've known torment
Trials - and pain - But - Heaven's Love encouraged
Me to forgive - and live and
Love again .


God bless all who are sad and suffering and afraid today ...

May He be near you and comfort you through your situation ...

Amen

Good Morning Stella
Your page shines out as does your beautiful poetry, as it always does.
The images are perfect as ever in your lovely work.
A stunning presentation of your special gift my friend, and the most comforting message within.
Your candle is burning brightly
Stella, the comment you have from Judy says it all.
How unfortunate there is not a well earned star rating to
highlight this page to more readers, but you are indeed a star in the eyes of God, and all your friends and all those who follow your work Stella
God Bless you my dear friend

For some Moderators I don't always give enough to warrant a star , but all is well Mariah . God knows the hard work I put into each poem , so with that I am content . We cannot please all people , so I am happy to please the One who matters and the comments speak for themselves .
God bless you for your kind support my friend .
