Never Alone

I keep a daily journal of “take-aways” from my devotional readings.  This poem was crafted from some of my February entries.

Sitting alone and hopeless

Our Lord never deserts us

He awakens mind and soul

In His Spirit, words bring trust


Turning to God, always there

His footprints walking ahead

Through life’s hefty challenges

Our Lord brings our daily bread


Reading from His Holy Word

Always giving thanks and praise

Marvelous things, God has done

Our hope alive and ablaze


Growing in faith, from our woes

Therefore, pray . . . listen . . . follow

Righteous life following Christ

Savior’s hope, never hollow


Facing temptation each day

Alignment with Son of God

Blood and body shed for us

Boldly fleeing evil’s fraud

From Galatians 6:1-2:  “My friends, if anyone is detected in a transgression, you who have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness.  Take care that you yourselves are not tempted.  Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

  1. Yes, Richard, this is a great reminder. The ONLY way to “Face temptation each day” is to be in “Alignment with Son of God.” Beautiful poem. You and I both do “take-aways” from our daily devotionals. I find them ti be great sources of inspiration, too.
