When I am Weak

When I am Weak

How could I not but thank you?
When billows around me roll,
When life’s busy struggles infold me,
When battles have taken their toll.

How could I not but thank you?
When my strength fails me more each day,
When the pain that I feel plagues my body,
When I'm humbled as I pray.

How could I not but thank you?
When death comes so close to my door,
When it pushes me deeper in sorrow,
Yet somehow my spirits do soar.

For when is my soul ever freer?
When it cries out from depths I’ve not known.
When my God seems to be so much nearer,
When awaiting my heavenly home.

When now I feel love so much stronger,
When loved ones I cherish more dear.
When in sickness and pain I am blessed,
When in weakness Jerusalem’s clear.

    You have beautifully expressed the source of our strength...... I believe you might like "Jesus in the Temple" or "A King's calling" One of my favorite secular writes is "Our Hearts are Broken Too" .... Love ya...... Jake

    I liked your write here a lot. The ravages of time wear on body and mind as year begets year and our bodies begin to fail.

    PS. I meant "hears us" But I think you guessed that. God bless you.

    I liked your poem very much. Thank you for sharing. God is our strength and refuge . Praising and thanking Jesus is a joy. And He here's us and wants us always to draw close to Him, our One and only Savior.
