With Me Always


In the darkness
You’re my light

When I’m lost
You’ll be my guide

When I stumble
I know You’ll catch me

You’re always walking
by my side

When I’m facing giants
You give me strength to take them down

When my joy is found in You
I rarely ever wear a frown

No matter what life throws me
You’re always there to see me through

In all life’s trials and troubles
I hear You whisper “My child, I love you.”

Remember, He Cares

I was laying in bed the other night, tossing and turning, just trying really hard to fall asleep. As I finally drifted off to sleep, these poetic lines started floating around in my brain, almost like someone was whispering in my ear. So, I sat up in bed, grabbed my iPod from the pillow next to me, and began to type them as a note. As I typed, more and more came to me. This poem is what I ended up with. I woke up the next morning, read through it again and revised it, but only for grammatical errors that I had made through my grogginess and changed the word choice in some places.

Remember, He Cares

When life gets you down,
Be still, just think
you belong to The King of Kings
He won’t let you sink.

So smile through the pain,

Laugh through the tears,

Keep a smile on your face,
Happiness, in your years.
The Lord is our Shepherd
and we, as His sheep,
have the promise of Heaven,
A promise we know He’ll keep.When He comes back to get me
I’m ready to go.
Be it tomorrow?
A month?
A year?
No one knows.Time here on earth is short
When compared
to the eternity we’ll spend
With our Saviour,
up there.

Although we face trials,
and troubles, and fears
Our God will not leave us,
He hears our prayer, wipes our tears.

So next time you’re worried,
stressed out, or scared,
Remember, Jesus died for YOU,
on the Cross,
Because He cares.
