It seems to stretch for miles.
For as far as I can see,
This hard and wearisome trial.
Many tears stream down my face.
I feel helpless and alone.
Walking through this lowland place,
Fatigue has gripped my bones.
It takes all the strength I possess,
This trial I must work through.
Will I ever find peace or rest?
Without God, there's nothing I can do.
Sometimes, doubt clouds my mind,
Yet I struggle to take hold of truth.
These trials will keep me in line,
So I’ll trust in the God of my youth.

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God.You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master." The painting "My Son" © 2012 is by Danny Hahlbohm, all rights reserved by the artist. Now I'd like to ask a very important question.
Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
