I wrote this poem in 2010 and it encouraged me today.
I pray whoever reads this post will be encouraged too.
In the Midst I Remember
Sometimes the struggles seem more than I can bear
Sometimes the burdens are so heavy – “OH GOD”- please send someone to share
An uphill battle is all I see in sight
I pray to God “please help me, please help me fight!”
But in the midst of the battle, I lift my head
In the midst of the trouble, I meditate on what He said-
“All things work together for good to them that love God”
So I continue to press, and through it all I remember to Thank God.
So when I’m tempted to murmur, complain and ask God why?
I must remind myself His ways are not my ways and resist the urge to cry.
In my natural mind, it seems crazy to give thanks
For battles that leave me bruised and battered
But in the midst of it all, I remember, I am called ‘according to His purpose.’
And “Praise God,” that’s all that matters!
FINAL WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Romans 8:28 (KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. –
All will be ok. In Jesus Name. AMEN!
Be Encouraged! Be Blessed!
