Never Alone

July 7, 2010

My latest poem which I thought I would share:


Splintered and confused
no direction or strength

Thin and brittle
what should be full

Tears washing skin
yet grimy inside

Collapsing onto knees
head hung

Prayer muttered
almost silent

Gentle presence
moves forth

The healer
the sustainer

God almighty
deliberate and careful

A purpose strengthened
And pain understood

Never alone!
Assured in the presence of God.

Never alone.

    Blessed Assurance
    God is with me
    Till the ends……….
    to eternity
    Never alone again
    I found God in each one
    I’ll live and never die!!!

    Beautiful poem Mark. i just love it. The first part really describes what i have been feeling recently. I am waiting for the second part to happen. i pray for that feeling that i am never alone but have a support system and of course a friend in God. May He be with me always …..that is my prayer.

      It will happen. That is exactly what FAITH is. It will happen. Allow it to happen by knowing that He want’s that for you!

    God’s strength is made perfect in our (through our) weakness. That’s what your words remind me. So true and so hard…. but like the saying says “What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger” and in our case as Christians, NOTHING can kill us because we will lLIVE forever. Love to your family today Mark. Keep on trucking through the muck and mire Mark.

  7. This is really lovely Mark! I am feeling a bit down in my spirit at the moment and I know God is very near… but like any human being I just want to be comforted physically and to hear him say to me, it is all over Ime, go celebrate.

    That is what God is calling us to do. Just know that he is closer than you think. Just a prayer away. His arms, always waiting to embrace you. Seek him, children.
