Letting Go With Faith

Why is it that when you have faith,
Non-believers just can’t see?
They refuse to believe there’s a higher being,
That knows much more than you and me.

They say you’re not ready,
To face the pain and sorrow.
Reality is, we're all hanging on,
To time that is just borrowed.

Is letting go and giving up the same?
Personally, I don't think so.
Giving up is losing faith.
Giving it to God, is letting go.

And yet written throughout the records,
You'll see over and over again,
“Mother not ready to face reality"
But it should've read, "Mom not ready to give in".

I wasn’t ready to give up,
But then He revealed it was time to let go.
I can’t thank Him enough for getting me through,
What seems like yesterday, yet a lifetime ago.

Until they said “He’s gone”,
I was still holding out,
For one of God’s miracles
That I know, He works without a doubt.

And when the miracle didn’t happen,
Yes, I was hurt beyond belief,
But I knew in my heart and head,
That my God would bring relief.

Because I know my God has reasons,
For allowing everything he does.
He knows everything that will be,
And everything that was.

I feel He saved John from something worse,
Or saved someone who’s life John touched,
I know God’s Will wasn’t what I had planned,
But I still know God loves me very much.

I just wish the non-believers,
Could see things through my eyes,
And would know that what my God offers,
Is promises not lies.

“Reality” for believers is different,
From those who don’t know Him like we do,
We believe in miracles and signs from God,
And pray that someday the non-believers will too.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This poem is a result of memories that have surfaced because of the Terri Shaivo stuff that is being plastered all over the world. Can we pray "God's will be done?" My prayers are with her family -- all of her family no matter what "side" they are on. I remember how upset it made me when they told me my son was dying and because I refused to "give up" they kept saying I wasn't ready to face reality. What is reality? I truly believe that God gave me a sign to help me get through those times. Even though I didn't get one, I still believe God does work miracles. But the thing that we must remember is it's God's will not ours. That is one of THE HARDEST prayers to pray. I thank Him for the time I did have with my son and for all the blessings he has given to me since. Tammy
