There is a Place

There is a place where I can go when trouble comes my way;
It is a special place, a quiet place, where I can go to pray.
For me it is a Heaven on earth, it is my private home,
A secret place where I can meditate and talk to God alone.

We strive so much for that great end when we shall meet
Our Savior in the Heavenly realm, and worship at his feet.
Sadly we canít see the truth that Jesus made so clear,
Godís kingdom is not a distant thing, but actually very near.

I look forward to that great day when all my troubles cease
So I can live with God where there is only love and peace.
But until that time Iíll joyfully dwell in my secret place,
Where daily I can talk to God and meet Him face to face.

You see, my secret place is not especially rich or nice,
But strangely it is the finest place this side of paradise.
Until that time when My Father calls me to depart,
I can at any time and any place find Jesus in my heart.

I love this place you speak of in your poem - that secret place where we can meet with The Lord in private. I have found it to be a place of spiritual growth, love, inspiration, peace and hope.
You describe it very well, and it is the closeest place to Paradise this side of eternity.

A beautiful poem and a touching write.

Lovely description of a inviting relationship/place.

This is positively lovely. It flows so nicely.

Wonderful! I could just see this story in a devotional for children ... to teach them right from the beginning that they can stand strong when they run to their secret place with God. Wish I could be a publisher instantly. I'd take this on immediately. I have a burden for the children in this world! You are a poet - a blessed one. :-)
