Lord, Give Me the Strength To Make It Through!


Lord Jesus, please give the strength and power.

And help me to make if through my darkest hour!


In the midst of this darkness… 

I need your guiding light!

With your help…  Everything will be alright!


  I need you now! Like I’ve never needed you before!

Through life’\s difficulties...

 I need you so much more!


By your strength, and gentle loving hand…

Everything I go through.  I know you understand!


Thank you for the work, in me, that you want to do!

I’d be totally lost right now.  If not for YOU!


You are all that I could hope for! 

 All I ever needed!

With you in my heart… 

My life is totally completed!


You’ve brought me strength and peace within!

I love you so much!  I don’t know where to begin!


You’ll be there for me! Even when everything seems lost!

You sacrificed your life for mine,

 by your death on the cross!


Yes!  Victory over my darkest hour

 has been overcome!

By the power of God!

 And his risen son!


Thank you Jesus!  In you, my life is totally secure!

You’ll always take care of me!  That’s for sure!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
