Holy Deliverance

From Psalm 34:17-18:  “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles.  The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit.”

Praying for His guidance

Needing our Lord each day

Kneeling in humbleness

Love answers with His way


Troubles overtake thee

Confessing now to Him

Finding peace in Jesus

Blessings fill saintly hymns


Taste and see, God is good

Life’s every heartbeat

Casts temptation aside

Walking to His drumbeat


Departing from evil’s sin

Each day, every hour

Come, listen to Father

Grace fuels mighty power


Calvary’s cross beckons

Love’s road to salvation

Empty tomb proclaiming

Life’s faithful foundation

This poem’s message of “Holy Deliverance” is intensely felt through the singing of Chris Tomlin in “Lord, I Need You.”

    • Susan, I always appreciate your affirmation of my poetry. You are so right about the metaphor used in “walking to His drumbeat” in one of the verses. Such words add much to any type of writing.
