Be ENCOURAGED // A Poem

Photo by Milan Popovic on Unsplash
This is for those who are broken.
This is for those who hurt.
This is for those who cry out, alone,
Thinking their voice is never heard.

This is for the lonely.
This is for those trapped in fears.
This is for the discontented.
And for those with hidden tears.

Take heart, dear one!
How beloved are you;
Dressed in worth, grace, & love---
A priceless soul in Truth.

Be ENCOURAGED.

You are so, so loved, dear heart.  This life is fraught with dangers, trials, lies, & corrupted influence.  But oh what grace there is found in the arms of our righteous King!

This poem is for you.  A reminder to
take heart, beloved!
The lies of this world are often shouted right at us, or given in secret, or manipulated into our daily thinking.  The Truth is often whispered in that soft & gentle voice---maybe by a friend, maybe through an event, or simply in silence.
Be conscious of which voice it is you are listening to.

"So, my dear sister, when your eyes are filled with tears & you're tempted to throw in the towel, take courage.  Lift up your head, cry out for grace, press on, give thanks, and know that it will not be long before your faith will be rewarded with the sight of the One who has promised to be with you to the end."
- Nancy D. Wolgemuth -

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
