Strength From God

As more darkness looms ahead, I will look to my Savior instead,
For Godís strength, one more time, in this trial, not of my design,
And as Godís done before, strength Heíll supply and much more,
As God leads me through the night, in His strength and His might.

My own endurance through this trial, will not last, thereís no denial,
Godís resources, I canít deplete, so in God, my strengthís replete.
With His strength He gives peace, that, from God, shall not cease,
As Heís helped me in past days, Heíll strengthen me to His praise.

Though weak and frail, I may be, that strength that God grants me,
Helps me through minute to hour, not through mine but His power,
Divine power, He extends by grace, for each and every trial I face,
Through the strength of The Lord, I know my ways will be restored.

Through my own strength I would fall, but, He is Lord God over all,
Over all the ways, within my life, as I follow The Lord, Jesus Christ,
Who guides me each and every day, lighting even the darkest way,
By God, dark days are not ignored, for Iím led by Christ, my Lord,

When I am weak, He is strong, so following God, I canít go wrong;
Grace God sends by His design, into my life, at just the right time,
So never is it too early or too late, as for Godís grace I never wait,
For He Who cares so much for me, is The Lord God, over Eternity.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What ABlessed Hope, Bob Gotti

Inspiration and sadness wash over me as I read your lines, Bob.  It appears you're going through a medical trauma at this time.  My prayers are with you.

God bless,
Rae

Thank you Rae,

God has been very good to me, as He has surrounded me not only with His Grace, but a pouring out of pray and support from good people like you.  Thank you very much for your concern and prayers, as they are much appreciated.  

In His Love, Bob

Oh dearest Bob--I apologize for my silence as I was at a loss for words.

Rae is a force of love, and it makes me happy that she's here for you.

Please trust that others do care.

It's surely in times of personal challenges in our lives that we are closest to God, as we do reach out like children for His Love and His support. You do this with deep gratitude and faith, dear Bob.
My prayers are with you.

Love and peace

It is amazing that those who already believe
have the key...and those who have walked a different path, still, and often, turn to their Maker, realizing that they still have a chance to be heard.

Bob, this was very touching, as your poems always are. I've been remiss from this forum for awhile...I need to come back...and offer more. A tithing of words, if you will.

You are in my prayers.

Bob, I sincerely hope you are leaning on the one who can take the weight, and I am sure you are.  Stay strong, and that was a very powerful write.

Thank you everyone for your kind words,
encouragement and prayers. Yes indeed,
The Lord is going to deliver my liver.

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
because of the Lord's great love we are not
consumed, for his compassions never fail. They
are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."  The LORD is
good to those whose hope is in him, to the one
who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the
salvation of the LORD. (Lamentations 3:21-26)

May God Bless all of you,
In Christ's Love, Bob

sometimes we are quiet
but we do hear and do care
