TURN TO ME

Here is another view of the round barn that lives close to us.  Paul loves this barn because of its unique shape.  It’s been preserved as a sort of landmark in the midst of a residential area and close to shops and restaurants.  It has become a destination for shoppers looking for antiques and unique arts and crafts. It serves a different purpose today, but it makes me think of how often we go in circles, but always come back to the same place.  When our circle seems like it has no end, it’s good to know that God is not only waiting for us at the end of the journey, but He’s with us through it a well.

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

When I feel alone and troubled,

By the cares of this world,  by anxious moments and depression,

I turn to You.

When I think I can no longer endure,

The jabs and punches of life, the blows of daily sentience,

I turn to You,

When I’m tired and worn out,

By fear,

Hate,

Anger,

Greed,

I turn to You,

When it seems there is no sanity left in the world,

When man thinks only  of himself and not others,

When demons seem to appear at every corner,

I turn to You,

When I lose a friend in death or they suffer pain or illness,

When I struggle to forgive those who have wronged me,

When my existence seems to bear no purpose,

I turn to You,

When relationships go bad, my memory begins to fail, my mind can’t organize or prioritize as it used to,

When my words become tangled and undecipherable,

When my age begins to show,

I turn to You,

When my days grow shorter,  my time seems empty, my days are ebbing to an end,

When existence is sapped and breath seems unattainable,

When my prayers are filled with tears and loss,

I turn to You,

When my body tells me it’s time to die,

When I come to you in prayer,

And ask for your forgiveness,

You turn to me.

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.

      Thank you David for your encouragement. Your dedication to the Psalms is so inspiring to me. There’s so much meat in God’s Word.

    A round barn? I guess building a round barn would be more expensive. Whoever went to that trouble probably built it well. That’s why it still serves a purpose.

    Because it is difficult to turn to Him, many don’t, but those who go to the trouble experience renewal. We let our Lord finish the work He had only begun when we were first born. Thus, we are born again.
