Almost Over

Two legs of my race are done, through the Power of The Son,
The Power of His Grace sustains, me as He, above me reigns,
With doctors being used by God, as Iím led with staff and rod,
He led me this far in a race, through the Power of Godís Grace.

Now with the chemo finished, I wait for the effects to diminish,
This, to get all of my feelings back, so no feelings I shall lack,
Friend again I must lean on Grace, until I get back to the place,
When I see the effects subside, while in Christ I patiently abide.

So now I wait for the next stage, when God turns another page,
Whether thereíll be more surgery, this to date, I have yet to see,
For another paragraph in my life, Iíll patiently wait, with my wife,
Whoís been a support all along, a path that has been very long.

So whatever may lie up ahead, Iíll follow my Lord as He has led,
In all of the prior uncertain times, leading me, all by His designs,
Designs that go above all reason, during a much darker season,
This, in my ever changing life, as I follow The Changeless Christ.

The next leg could be the last, which, by my Lord has been cast,
By The Lord and Godís Decree, while His outcome, we shall see,
So if another surgery is a must, in Christ our Lord, we shall trust,
As any end we face in our story, will be for Godís Ultimate Glory.

(Copyright ©07/2011 Bob Gotti)

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 A Blessed Hope, Bob Gotti / http://www.poeticpulpit.com

((HUGS)) to you, Bob.  You are a remarkable man.  To have you praising God in your situation is a blessing to read, and a lesson to be learned by many of us.  I thank God for you, and the glory manifested Him in you.

This, in my ever changing life, as I follow The Changeless Christ.

And your faith in Him touches so many of us.
