God Is Near!

God is near when the enemy surrounds - and there seems to be no way out - the soldier who knows their God in  Psalm 91 - know that there is protection under His sheltering wings - God is near - His angels guard the faithful warriors - even when they walk through the valley of the shadow of death - for it is but a shadow - taking them to the other side of glory to their heavenly home  - God is near in the midst of the battle - where all around bombs are bursting in air - He will give a way of escape - here and now and  when they have given their last full measure of devotion  

God is near!

We thank you all who served for our country -  brave warriors who keep our way of freedom - our way of life- we are grateful for your sacrifice and courage - God bless America - God is near on this day of remembrance - a memorial for the living and for the fallen - for

God is always near!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
