Despite What Comes

If there's a smile on my face
when you pass me by,
give Jesus the glory,
for He's the reason why.

He makes a rainy day
bright instead of dreary,
ignites a sullen spirit
when it grows a little weary.

Even painful trials He    
makes easier to bear,
by carrying my burdens
on His shoulders everywhere.

A bad day turns out good
when Jesus runs the show;
He's ordering my steps
no matter where I go.

What a wonderful example
I can set each day
reflecting Christ to others
despite what comes my way!

Hebrews 13:5 "I will never forsake you.  I will never fail you."  AMEN!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
