Around Another Bend

With a thankful heart I raise, a heart of thanks to God in praise,
For seeing me thru another bend, as I wait for the ultimate end,
That time ahead, when I shall be, back on my feet, cancer free,
Until then, I look to my God, Whoís comforted me with His rod.

Through chemo and two surgeries, Iím now again on my knees,
Asking for His Grace and Mercies, to do just as The Lord sees;
An unpleasant stay at the hospital, but, I know Iím in Godís will,
For itís times like this He will shine, for I am His and He is mine.

In a hospital and now back home, God cares for me as his own,
And in this stressful time of life, itís through a caring loving wife,
Helping me through post surgery, well beyond her care normally,
With grace, comfort and her love, that is directed by God above.

I pray for Godís peace of mind, as God puts my surgery behind.
For helping us both to look ahead, filled with His Peace instead,
As The Lord leads me day to day, not in mine, but in Godís way,
For Godís desire in my life, is Glory and Praise, for Jesus Christ.

Itís not mine to know how or why, but, to only trust God on high,
Who has led me this whole journey, even in ways I could not see,
So, I shall again trust in God alone, to guide me from His Throne,
To hear those words spoken to me, that Iím now truly cancer free.

(Copyright ©10/2011 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

God's Blessing your way, Bob.
I went through that in 1998.
Now, in 2011 after receiving the grace and forgiveness from our Lord I am still cancer free.  You need not plea in repetitiveness, only know He will remove the cancer or take you home.  Forgive all friends, family and anyone you can think of, everything. Pray for everyone you can think of and Bless the Lord.  I don't mean to sound so blunt about going home, but God said in His word he created all things including diseases.  He also says He Kills and He makes alive.  His words.  He is all powerful.

Don't fear.
I don't mean to sound so preachy either.
Sorry if I did.

Deuteronomy 32:39
2Kings 5:7

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!

Your acceptance of His will is beautiful to behold. I'm glad you're home again. *S*

Your words are a blessing to us all, Bob.  Your steadfastness through adversity an inspiration.

I'll say you're an inspiration, Bob.  Not that your faith ever seemed weak, but during your suffering, you exemplify extremely strong faith.  It reminds me of Apostle Paul praising
our Lord while chained in prison.  

Thank you for sharing your trials in your poetry.  May you and your loving wife receive an abundance of blessings.
