still journeying on...still trusting


I am Persuaded

that He loves me

and He cares


I am Persuaded

that He keeps me

even through my tears way grows dark

when navigating through the storms and dense fog...

and my flesh cries out...disembark!


Yet, after lingering for a moment in 'only human' park

I stand erect and to His call... hark

through it all...staunchly...Persuaded




Rom 8:28

"I am Persuaded" that God has a special hand on you. Using your heart to push your hand to write his truth. We all need to stand persuaded, to never be removed. Letting God shine through us as he shines through you!

Yes, it takes only one fleeting moment to consider "there is no god" to quickly be restored to our inner truth and to reaffirm us in it. The loudest scream I have ever screamed was when I was given a taste of separation from God - it is something I have no wish to re-experience, either in this life or the one to come... Bless you for this sensitive and honest portrayal. xx

"The Dark Night of The Soul." You have described it so very well.
Yet in those times he is just as near, if not nearer than the air that we breath.

This reminds me of the song we sang in church when I was a child---"Almost Persuaded". The beauty of your poem is you ARE persuaded. Nice write.

He is of course The Great Communicator, if you listen well you will catch His drift and be Persuaded.
A declaration of faith.
