Help and Strength

Updated on January 21, 2014

My soul is weary.

God, help me to praise you.

My heart is heavy.

Help me to thank you.

My body is ill.

Help me to serve You.

I am overwhelmed.

Help me find my rest in you.

I feel I have been wronged.

Help me trust you.

Through the pain

Help me grow closer to you.

My heart harbors the poisons of

Rage, hatred, and bitterness.

Help me extend the same

Love, grace, and forgiveness

You daily give me.

My life has sadness.

Help me encourage your people.

I need the safety of Your name and

The comfort of your embrace.

Hide me, Jesus.

The tempter seeks to devour

But, the name of the Lord is a strong tower;

The righteous man runs to it and is safe.

For you have been my refuge,

A strong tower against the enemy.

      Thanks for the inspirational poem. I find it very much a thought that people reflect. God always hears us, no matter how we feel, and responds with love and hope.

      Beautiful words, deep and meaningful. Sometimes we do get tired and sometimes it is hard to find the strength to move on but God's word is He will never leave us or forsake us. This poem spoke to my heart at a time when I needed encouragement. Sometimes other's just need to know that they are not alone...God bless!

      We are human and do have all these problems and ups and downs in life and sometimes feel so helpless, but with God's help they can be overcome and even contribute to building a stronger character. God bless you.
