The Trysting Place

Grace, grace! All is grace
That comes from God's benevolent hand...
Salvation, blessing, yea, suffering too,
Though it's hard to understand.

For suffering drives the wounded saint
Not to defeat or woe,
But to a secret, hallowed place...
Upon his knees he'll go.

He listens not to Arrogance
Who shouts, "Don't kneel. Stand tall!"
But with trembling faith and humility
Bows his knee, his heart, his all.

And there before his loving Lord
He vows, "I shall not fear,
For in the presence of my God
There's mercy, comfort, cheer."

O what unspeakable joys await
This saint who fears not Satan's blow!
He enters a fellowship so tender and dear
That an unbowing world cannot know.

For the cares of his heart there's simplicity,
For sorrows songs in the night.
For the sins of his soul there is mercy,
For darkness wisdom and light.

When lonely he'll find a Brother,
When suffering comfort and grace.
Yea, all that a Pilgrim e'er could need
Is found at the Trysting Place.

So come, suffering saint, to this hallowed ground,
Let God dry thy tearful eyes.
Come where God's grace and glory abound...
Now in His strength... Arise!

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

Beautiful, in bringing us to awareness that though me may be buffeted by life's travail, yet, we ought not be anxious for nothing but in all things with supplication and thanksgiving, seek and receive of God's loving grace. Thanks for joy shared.

Linda, I have missed your beautiful poetry! I hope you will share more. I read this three times and it got better and more inspiring each time. I agree with Helen - you have a REAL talent and an evident heart for God in your writing. I absolutely loved it! Please write more. Your sister in Christ, Julia

"So come, suffering saint, to this holy ground, Let God dry thy tearful eyes. Come where God's glory and grace abound... Now in His strength... Arise!"...Linda, your poem brought tears to my eyes. Yesterday I inadvertantly and unintentionally hurt a VERY good friend--and relative--of mine by trying to help when my help was not wanted. I have said "I'm sorry!"...with no excuses for my myself. So now I will have to just let God dry my tears, as I have shed many...Thanks so much. Your poem, as always was wonderful. You have a real talent and are using it for God's glory.
