DEEPER STILL

Life down here delivers mighty, mighty blows
With no regard, whatsoever, for the imminent woes
My breath is taken and my heart is pained
O, to see the damage suffered by these blows at impact
At my heart's foundation, there revealed would be a crack

The crevasse deepens with each blow
Infection grasps hold to fester and grow
Is this truly what was meant to be?
My toils, my trials - serve only to weaken and tire
Is there no respite from this, my muck and mire?

It is then, when certain life will come crashing down
I remember One Who to His death wore a thorny crown
All for me, He died - a King of suffering
Yet, in three days' time arose victorious
Can there be a greater Hope so glorious?

O, my Jesus, You are the Way - the Overcomer!
Holy One and Great Physician - be Thou my Healer!
As You promised, life and trials go hand in hand
But may You, O Lord, be my quenching breath
Let Your healing flood wash away the stench of death

As sure as the blows of life are true
Causing the crack in my heart to almost break through
There is that Hope that in me swells
As the wounds grow deeper and wish to kill
Come in, my Savior - fill me deeper still



"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace
In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." 

John 16:33 NAS

Beautiful! Keep serving and inspiring for His glory. In Christ, Christian

This is such a sad exprssion of life with its trials and sorrows, but what a lesson! How our Lord suffered for us. No matter how much pain we have to endure, Christ has endured far more, and He is with us to lift us up. Very good, and what an intriguing title: Deeper Still....Helen

Just this morning God reminded me that if we suffer with Christ, we shall also reign with Christ. Because of sin and rebels against God, life down here will never ever be easy but Jesus has prepared a place for us and He coming again to take us home. Often when we are going through we forget that this world is not our home. Mighty blows will come but if we hold on we find that God is Mightier than the blows! Things are getting really ugly in this world but we must hold with all we've got! And when our strength fails us, we must remember God's strength is perfect in our weakness. I love you Jody, and thanks for sharing these encouraging words...Patricia~
