Deliverance from Troubles

The Bible offers a rich source of thanksgiving, hope, and deliverance as Psalm 107 inspires the text for this poem. 

From Psalm 107:1-2:  “O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever.  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those He redeemed from trouble.”

Thanking our Lord above

Seeing His wondrous deeds

His Holy, steadfast love

All humankind, He leads

 

Overwhelming distress

Crying out to the Lord

Discovering His light

Living by His accord

 

Bringing us from darkness

Satisfying our thirst

Saving us with His light

Loving us, always first

 

Filling endless hunger

Breaking these sinful chains

Reaching out to His light

Trusting God, with the reins

 

Halting all wickedness

Calming all stormy winds

Healing us with His light

Forgiving dark-filled sins

 

Praising our Redeemer

Hearing cries, not ignored

Delivering His light

Giving thanks to our Lord

 

Thanking our Lord above

Seeing His wondrous deeds

His Holy, steadfast love

All humankind, He leads

From the words of American pastor and Christian author, Charles Swindoll:  “Circumstances occur that could easily crush us.  We can hand the circumstances to God and ask Him to take control or we can roll up our mental sleeves and slug it out.”
