Jesus holds the reign

when over all your life is spinning,
can’t tell endings from beginnings
and you’re like a wild horse on the plain …

Jesus holds the reins.



Jesus holds the reign

when over all your life is crashing,
storms are blowing, winds are thrashing
and you’re like a spider on a drain …

Jesus holds the rain.



Jesus holds the reign

when over all your life you’ve questioned,
“Why so cruel? Why the depression?”
and you’re like a heart so filled with pain …

Jesus holds the reign.

Jesus holds the reign.





God bless,
Lighthouse Bob

I was humming as I read this one, Bob.

Thank you, Alison, for stopping by and replying to my poem and, WoW, I do appreciate and think it's great that you were actually humming, because, well, because this poem did first come to me in the form of a kind of melody.

Again, thanks for your kind reply and God bless,

-Bob

This is a lovely write.
It certainly set me to spinning.
The only thing is I'm jealous of your talent!

What a calming thought when we're in the midst of turmoil.  We all need to be prodded to, take a deep breath and remember who's in charge.  It's courage for the downtrodden, unappreciated, sick and grieving, to know justice reigns in our Lord.  We may think of loads of responses but knowing Christ is in charge, solves it all.
Thank you for sharing with us.  
May I send a copy of this to a young man who really needs it now?  Of course, I'd make certain you are named the author, Bob.

God bless,
Rae

Gbride,

OMG! Thank you so very, very much! I feel very honored to have my poetry admired by you that much!

Thank you, my poet(ess) friend, Thank you!

(the Bride thing through me off, Sorry!)


Rae,

OMG! Of course! What a Great Honor! It’s why I write! Of course, of Course, of Course you have my permission to share this poem with someone else and, especially, someone who has a need in their life right now and, OMG, yes, of course, I join you in your prayer, my Christian friend, may this young man be blessed, be encouraged, be healed and find inner and complete peace in every aspect of his life.

Thank you for sharing and, again, God bless,

-Bob
