IN HIS MERCY, HE HEARD MY PRAYER

raindrops

On a rainy day, we tend to become melancholy or sad.  All we need to do is turn to God in prayer.  In His mercy He will hear your voice and He will act on your requests. It’s already been done.

ART  & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

Arms raised, reaching up to heaven,
Pleading for forgiveness, longing for deliverance,
Eyes surveying heaven’s darkest recesses,
Mind in turmoil, pain and agony,
Out of the depths I cry to you, oh, Lord,
Release me from the sin that clings to me,
The weight of those transgressions rests on burdened shoulders,
The sting of death pierces his side,
He dies taking every sin to the grave,
Death is swallowed in victory.

My tears fall no more, except for tears of joy,

My arms rise to heaven again,

This time in grateful thanksgiving,

My deliverance has come and the darkness remains no more,

No more pain or turmoil –

The agony died on a cross with my Savior,

My sin lies in ashes and are forgiven,

No more will I fear death or hell,

The price has been paid, the ransom fulfilled,

Eternal life waits and I have reason to look forward to it.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

      Sometimes I just have to write my prayers down. I can then see how he answers them. Thanks for your kind words!
