When I Hurt

When I Hurt

Sometimes I feel such pain and fear
I beg You for relief.
I feel I bear a burden that
Is far beyond belief.
Sometimes I wonder if You’ll heal
My aching body’s pain.
For I can’t seem to do Your work
While pain and weakness reign.
I read Your Word, Your promises
To heal me by Your stripes.
And when the healing doesn’t come
I give complaints and gripes.
But Lord, please help me trust in You
And know that You know best,
And even in my hardest pain
Please help me to feel blessed.
Your thoughts are not the thoughts of men;
Your ways are not our ways.
Remind me of Your blessings as
I hobble through my days.
Please  keep my eyes off of myself
And always on Your Son.
No matter how I feel, I’ll say,
“My Lord,  Thy will be done.”

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
