When I was growing up, I wrote poetry, I wrote when I was mad and when I was sad and also when I was filled with joy. The paper and pen has always been a comfort to me and now the Lord has made it a blessing. I found my "Power of a Praying Woman" journal today and wanted to share it with you. Sometimes, when I have not read one of my poems for a long time, I cannot believe I wrote the words myself. Surely God was guiding my hand.
If you have read entries in my sidebar, or any other of my blogs, you know that my husband is in the 6th year of fighting the devastating Multiple Myeloma cancer in his spine. It changed our lives a lot and sometimes I really miss that other us before the illness came. I pray more than once a day that God will lay his healing hand upon my sweet husband and make him whole again...
Talking with God and writing down my thoughts and prayers are theraputic for me and so I will share with you my poem of 11/22/10:
I Walk Alone
©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart
Sometimes, I walk alone~
even though I know you are there.
It is hard for me to open my heart
To let you in when I despair
And I know you are beside me
No matter how hard the walk.
And all I really need to do,
Is talk to you, just talk.
To lift my voice in prayer
To a heavenly Father who cares.
Even before I speak, you know
My every need when I am low.
You pick me up when e'er I fall
You dust me off and I am tall,
To meet each new day I see,
Thank you Lord for being there for me.
And God is always there for us! Sometimes don't you just need to talk with someone intimately, who understands you completely without judgement like a lifelong friend? Well the Lord and his Son Jesus are your life-long and beyond friends! You can open your heart to them, tell them anything you want to. You can confess your sins and they shall be made white as snow and God will never think of them again! Your heart will be a clean slate, wiped clean.
2 Corinthians 5:17 If any man is in Christ, he is a new being. The old is gone, the new hath come.
That is comforting, is it not? I send hugs to you through time and space and invite you to become friends with your Creator and His Son Jesus who died on the cross so that we might have life everlasting. Thank Him now that he loves you and me so much that he made this sacrifice like no other.
Are you willing to get on your knees? I get on my knees in humbleness by my bedside at times and my heart is filled with joy. God Bless and do come again soon, thank you for letting me share some of my personal talk and walk with Jesus today.♥KERRIE♥
My Christian heart to yours...
