Hungry for Hope

From Lamentations 3:22-24:  “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  ‘The Lord is my portion,; says my soul,therefore I will hope in Him.'”

Simple acts of faith

Filled with love for man

God pulls at heart strings

Part of Holy plan


Life hungry for hope

Man’s health in decline

Liver in failure

God opens hotline


Future growing dim

Darkness can’t escape

Searching for donor

Life’s faithful landscape


Seeking live donor

Doctors’ preferred choice

Humble man steps up

Quiets hopeless voice


Two lives now at risk

Surgery takes place

Success accomplished

Miracle brings grace


One man’s health restored

Donor’s body mends

Hope’s hunger fulfilled

God’s faith never bends

This poem brings a true story, which is close to my family’s heart.  The living donor is my son-in-law, married to my youngest daughter.  The two of them will be back home in a few days (about one month since the surgery).  Many lives have been changed by this simple, humble act.  God’s blessings to all living donors.
