Helping hand - two women

Encourage One Another

Have you ever felt so defeated,
So crushed and broken, too,
That no matter how hard you tried,
There seemed to be no hope for you.

And then without any warning,
A friend appears on the scene,
And offers you a helping hand,
And turns a dull day into the unforseen.

A few words of instant understanding,
An offer to help you out,
And you begin to breathe again,
And no longer whine or pout.

God always knows when we've been hurt
He knows our every need,
He may be testing our endurance
While planting a fertile seed.

He may be testing our faith in Him,
As we plod life's great highway,
And we will learn great lessons,
When we take the time to pray.

No matter what the problems are,
When we give them all to Him,
God has all the right answers,
And we get back our silly grin.

When we help someone recover,
We will find life's brighter side,
And we will be rewarded some day,
When in His eternity we abide.

When we encourage one another,
We build a sturdy bridge,
Across life's raging rivers
To heaven's awesome ridge.

It gives me a warm feeling in my heart to write poetry.  I am a "Golden Ager" shut-in and writing keeps my mind busy with something I've done ever since I was a child, and it's my way of sharing our LORD with who ever comes to visit.  Thanks for reading my poetry - I'd love to hear your comments.  May God richly bless you.  Send emails to:   EvaYoung @ SkyWriting.Net
