ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
When it seems that all is gone and the days stretch on too long,
There is hope and consolation in God’s perfect preservation,
He provides for every need, even when there’s naught to feed,
When miracles are required, He will give with love inspired,
His perfection does abound in creation all around,
Lift your hands to Him in prayer, He will calm your every care,
Maybe not as you expected, but in ways that He’s directed,
He will soothe your troubled mind, give you peace in all you find,
He will lift you to His breast, calming fears through every test,
He will breathe new life in you, when the present one is through,
As He made Himself to be known for our dying, breathless groan,
A second Adam He became, so to destroy our sin to shame,
Born in poverty without sin, the Son of God would now begin,
The greatest story ever told, fulfilling prophesy of old,
Living life in a perfect way, following His Father’s plan each day,
He took our sin on His shoulders, making songs come out of boulders,
Then He conquered all death and sin, so in heaven we could join Him,
We wait for His second coming with songs that will keep us humming,
Praising Him with all of our hearts, perceiving this is where it starts.
Kathy, I found much peace in walking with Lord through your poetry. I find much to praise with this post’s title.
Thank you, Richard/ This is just the beginning. Every day seems that way to me. It’s another opportunity to share God’s love before we actually get to walk with him in person.
