We all think back on our life at one point or another. We often find that although we thought we knew our Savior, we had formed our own ideas of what and who he is.

A Dismal Feeling


I think back to youthful times when I felt lost and alone

I think back to a time when life seemed empty and unfulfilled.

I remember a time when my lonely soul would cry out loud and moan

For guidance from my Lord above to make the anguish be stilled.

I prayed to him and prayed to him but knew not what to pray for

I asked for wealth and peace of mind and treasures of this Earth

One day I opened up my eyes and trained them on Heavens door.

I realized then I knew not what my earthly things were worth.

He smiled and raised his arms to me, an invitation to join him there

He showed me riches I had never seen and joys I had never known.

As I gazed into his eyes I could not help but stare

For within his eyes was love complete that would never leave me alone.

For the first time in my life I realized he had been there all along

Sometimes we all forget what dismal feelings really mean.

Now I join him and I praise him in work, in poem and song

Those dismal feelings are only there because we have not seen

Although we see him not with our eyes, we see him with our heart.

And with his steadfast love guiding us we will not depart

From his love and from his care and from his words so dear.

Words of joy and words of love from one who is always near.

God Bless

This is not worldly wisdom that change and adapts everytime we enter another season in our lives. This is the Holy Christ, the anointed One. And we have been given the opportunity to fellowship with Him in Spirit and in Truth, if we so choose. Who would ever be foolish enough not too?

A wonderful write dear Lew!
Blessings to you ...

Amen and Amen! What a Friend we have in Jesus!

Wonderful write, Lew! Still, I am sorry for your loss, yet share your exhilaration that Mr. Davis is now with our LORD and Saviour! Beautiful composition of Jesus and Mr. Davis...I created a similar one for my own Dad.

God bless you, Brother!
