I Am Often Weak And Weary – Helen Steiner Rice

I am often weak and weary,
and life is dark and bleak and dreary. . .
But somehow when I realize that He
who made the sea and skies
And holds the whole world in His hand
has my small soul in His command,
It gives me strength to try once more to
somehow reach the heavenly door
where I will live forevermore
with friends and loved ones I adore.

He Died So We Might Live – Helen Steiner Rice

If we but had the eyes to see
God’s face in every cloud,
If we but had the ears to hear
His voice above the crowd,
We’d find the peace we’re seeking,
the kind no man can give—
The peace that comes from knowing
He died so we might live!

Helen Steiner Rice

Each Life Is A Song

A life is like a song we write
In our own tone and key,
Each life we touch reflects a note
That forms the melody.
We choose the theme and chorus
Of the song to bear our name,
And each will have a special sound,
No two can sound the same.
So when someone we love departs,
In memory we find
Their song plays on within the hearts
Of those they leave behind.

Charles F. Little, Jr.

Withdrawal Means Renewal

When life becomes a problem
much too great for us to bear,
Instead of trying to escape,
let us withdraw in prayer—
For withdrawal means renewal
if we withdraw to pray
And listen in the quietness
to hear what God will say.

What Is Love – Helen Steiner Rice

What is love? No words can define it—
It’s something so great
only God could design it.
For love means much more
than small words can express,
For what we call love is very much less
Than the beauty and depth
and the true riches of
God’s gift to mankind—
His compassionate love.

God’s Got This ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God's Got This ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo IBible Verses

God’s got this,
He has a handle on it
and I know to me . .
it’ll be a benefit.

I know better than,
to do this on my own
for I know if I did . . .
I’d complain and moan.

God’s got this,
I’ve given it to Him . . .
even though right now
things are looking grim.

He will make something,
beautiful out of this . . .
if I get in His way
His blessing I will miss.

God’s got this,
it’s entirely in His hand
and one day this too . . .
I will come to understand!

and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

The Love Of God Is Forever

Kings and kingdoms all pass away—
Nothing on earth endures. . .
But the love of God who sent His Son
Is forever and ever yours!
