For A Man Named Joe


His eyes are upon you and His light shows you the way.

Though darkness and oppression gathers all about you,

His truth and His love that lives within shall forever stay.


Joe, oh Joe even though the valley in which you walk seems endless,

Even though the once bright skies have all but turned unto ashen gray.

You dear sir have something that many do not in that you have faith.


I know I seem not much to be the one to offer up these words so bright and fair.

As I…oh I from on bended knee constantly fight the principalities of the air.

Where there are times you seem only as one; tis not true for you know the Son.

You shall overcome this trial; and you shall come forth in praise with victory won.


For many Joe…many are the afflictions of the righteous…and the Lord God knows that you are one.


*Also there is another man….who shall remain unnamed.

He…deep in his heart seeks this truth…

but is uncertain on how to even pray.


*So for you who shall remain unnamed….God knows your heart

and he wants YOU to just walk and talk with Him this day.


Some things….just some things you know….



PS: Never Give Up...For He does not give up on you., and always...always LOVE with all your heart.

Beautiful to read after the deaths of my sister in law and my brother within a week of each other. Just got back from Ohio and the funeral and read this and realize I have to go on and not give up. I am the only one left besides cousins now, and felt lost as if I am next. Your writing here makes sense for me to go on, not give up and trust god and do as you say and as God says. Much needed adice tonight for me. Thank you very much.

THERE you go, Allen. Encouraging others through the troubles you've seen - words penned from (unwanted) experience. Continue to reach out to others who are grieving - or need a lesson on how to walk in Grace. (As you're showing me through your poetry. Thank you.) Well done, and tell Joe he is now in my prayers (as ever are you).

((((HUGS)))) and love, Karla.
