Laid up Once More

There is another bend in the road, again with another heavy load,
A heavy load of concern and care, another load in which to bear,
Yes, for another time in this life, I will have to go under the knife,
For The Lord has willed for me, yet, one more necessary surgery.

Itís not only me filled with cares, but, concerns my family shares,
It is especially in times like this, when we trust in The Lord Jesus,
As concerns around us are rife, He comforts my concerned wife.
Who is bearing yet another load, as we travel down another road.

I am not eager for the time ahead, laid up in another hospital bed,
And far away from my normal routine, while in that hospital scene,
Again, limited in all that I can do, while The Lord sees me through,
Back again, with my family instead, while far from a hospital bed.

But The Lord knew well before, Iíll have to enter the hospital door,
And why I needed surgery again, as He guides the hands of men,
While they wield that surgical knife, guided by The Creator of life,
So as they work with their hands, the Lord by me faithfully stands.

All this as God works in my days, for my good and Godís Praise,
As The Lordís comfort and peace, trumps this now awful disease,
While each day Iím again assured, this battle belongs to my Lord,
As God brings me closer for sure, to His timely and ultimate cure.

(Copyright ©09/2011 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 ABlessed Hope, Bob Gotti

Bob, I'm sorry to hear you need another surgery... I pray the Great Physician gives you and your family all the strength you need to see you through this trial and guides the hands of your doctor so you'll soon be home with your dear wife.

Everything will be all right, as you trust God's love to surround you and your family in this difficult time.

Joining in prayer for successful surgery.

Love and light.

It is not merely a poem but like a Mantra to boost mental strength to everybody in grave a situation. I like and adore it .
