The Strongest Crutch


yes, He is real
He knows how you feel
when you're broken, I can say this much
Jesus is there to be your crutch
on Him you can depend
He won't leave you alone to mend
made of the strongest stuff
Jesus is gentle, but oh so tough
don't reach for second best
He's better than all the rest
it doesn't matter what's your size
He's the real deal, and to the task He'll arise
to get into Heaven, Jesus is a must
He's the only one you can really trust
lean on Him - He can carry your weight
one day, He'll escort you to Heaven's gate
He'll take you inside
and with Him, you'll forever abide

Romans 8:16-17
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs - heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed, we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
