hopelessness overcome

I felt the hopelessness in my heart
Everything I tried was falling apart
All my dreams and aspirations were lying on the ground
Not one glimmer of hope was to be found.
I felt the weight of it dragging me down
I tried to scream but made no sound
I felt at the point of no return
All the bridges I had burned
How do we get to this point in life?
When we no longer have the will to fight.
I think there is something in the air
Creating this hopelessness and despair.
I know this is something that many goo thru
And fighting this feeling I had to do.
So I went outside and looked to the sky
And watched the clouds just floating by
If the clouds can move so quickly and make the grey skies blue
Then it’s something that I must do.
So I took a deep breath – and lo and behold to my surprise
Everything disappeared before my eyes.
Then I realized that sometimes the environment that we are in
Can create a feeling where you just can’t win.
So just change the location of where it began
Then that hopeless feeling you’ll understand.

strength beyond compare ( cancer)

Not even sickness could keep you down
You took the pain without a sound
You have strength beyond compare
And this with others you do share.
No one can know your pain
Except the ones who are going thru the same.

Breast cancer is not only restricted to women
Men get it too.
But they are not as strong as you
They have more of a macho block
This stays on their minds and just can’t stop.
The percentage may be mighty small
But it affects us one and all.

With a lot of inspiration
Someday we’ll find the vaccination.
It will stop those cells dead in its tracks
And there’ll be no coming back.
But until then – don’t give up the fight
We see your struggles, they’re in our sight.

two sinner hearts

 

I saw this sister with her hands folded in prayer

With tears rolling down her face, not knowing I was there.

I heard her words so softly spoken saying:

“Dear GOD “I give you my heart and soul

So that you can make this sinner once again whole.

Like a sheep I have strayed and lost my way

And with you is where I want to stay!

I must join your flock once again

So that I can be with family and friends.

The world out there is bitter and cold and wolves all around

Waiting for me to let my guard down.

They say a sinner’s life could be joyous and fun

But I was never told- my life would be undone.

Lead I back LORD I pray- from your side I will not stray.

While listening to her I recalled why I came

Cause in my heart I was feeling the same.

I sat down beside her and she knew right away

She reached for my hand and we began to pray.

There was a feeling of relief that filled the air

And our lives with GOD we knew we’d share.

It was two sinner hearts that had gone astray

And through prayer we found our way.
