Deuteronomy 29:29

I wrote this a couple of years ago for a young woman who had been through several tragedies in a very short period. Today, I learned of another young woman who tried to end her life. I pray that God will speak to her and even more importantly, that she will listen. I pray these words will help someone else who might need to hear them because he or she is going through a rough time. Please turn to God.

Deuteronomy 29:29

(Deu 29:29 KJV)  The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

The secret things belong to God;
Not all has been revealed.
We have to stumble in the dark
With many things concealed.
At times like this, the only thing
That we can really do
Is try to find the Blessed Light
To help us make it through.
You’ve gone through dark and tortured times
You cannot understand
But if you trust that God sees all
And reach out for His hand
He’ll guide you safely through the dark.
In time, you’ll find the Light.
The morning sun will shine again;
You’ll see the end of night.

May God bless you and comfort you.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
