I Can Do All Things Through Him

When life's treacherous trek becomes more than I can bear,
And it seems there is no deliverance from my deep despair,
I repeat these words of reassurance that will relieve my woe:
"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength", I know!

When I'm assailed from all sides with hopeless situations,
I know that He will listen to my earnest supplications,
And give me courage to triumph o'er challenges here below.
"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength", I know!

When loved ones pass and it seems more than can be endured,
With His compassionate embrace and love, I am reassured.
His peace and understanding upon me He will e'er bestow!
"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength", I know!

When I am faced with seemingly insurmountable goals,
And my dreams and aspirations are dashed on desolate shoals,
With these reassuring words I can conquer any foe:
"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength", I know!

When I encounter the many trials and tribulations of life,
I turn to the One who can ease my stress and strife,
Placing my trust and faith in Him from whom all graces flow.
"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength", I know!

    All through my years I have hung onto those very words. Yes I can do all things though Christ. I tell my own children they can too. Excellent poem brother. God bless you.

    So uplifting, Bob. This past year has been a rough one, but my faith has given me the courage to face life's challenges. Sometimes I think God appreciates prayers of thanks more than prayers asking for favors. When the obstacles you describe are overcome, that's when we need to offer thanks. Best wishes in Gail's contest with whis incredible poem, Bob! Love, Carolyn

    Well I'll be more than surprised if this poem doesn't win a first place in the contest Robert. What you are saying is quite right and I've had instances in my life when I've proved this to be true. You have put a lot of thought into your poem and the metre is good also. Well done. You don't need a contest to tell you it is good. It is.
