The cry of the afflicted.
God's arm is not too short to save
The righteous from the wicked.
God's hand is not too small to offer
Comfort that is needed.
God's heart is not too dull to feel
The pain of those mistreated.
The Lord can surely sympathize
With what a human feels:
Our sorrow, weakness, and our cares.
To the Father He appeals.

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through sixteen. I provided minor input on the completed version of the poem published on this page. 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.

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?

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
