Today's poem was taken from today's  "Jesus Calling."

GROW STRONG IN YOUR WEAKNESS

Grow strong in your weakness
Weakness is not a sin.
Grow strong in your weakness
It's how you grow within.

Grow strong in your weakness
It's not a lack of faith
Grow strong in your weakness
It teaches you to wait.

Grow strong in your weakness
Fragility is not punishing you.
Grow strong in your weakness
I'll be glorified in you.

Be strong in your weakness
Learn to lean on Me.
How strong in your weakness
You have My presence constantly.

YOU WILL ENCOUNTER ME IN YOUR MOST DESOLATE PLACES

You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
When your heart is torn from a loved one's loss.
You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
Even the burden of your cross.

You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
When your faith is weak and you've lost hope.
You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
I'm always here to help you cope.

You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
No circumstances will isolate Me from you.
You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
I see all that you've been through.

You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
Nothing can take My love from thee.
You will encounter Me in your most desolate places
My presence will give you courage, you see!

BE REFRESHED IN THE HOPE OF HEAVEN

Be refreshed in the hope of heaven
As you sail life's stormy sea
Know the joys that await you
When you will live eternally with Me.

Be refreshed in the hope of heaven
When your days seem hopelessly
As I walk each day beside you
I'm planning your home beyond the sea.

Be refreshed in the hope of heaven
When you'll nevermore be sad
Where loved ones await you
With a reunion oh, so glad.

Be refreshed in the hope of heaven
Know my sustaining grace
And the mysteries will be solved
When you meet Me face to face!

GO STEP BY STEP WITH ME

Go step by step with Me
Keep your mind focused on Me
For the devil is close by
And he will surely tempt thee.

Go step by step with Me
When the days are weary and long
Just walk along with Me
And I will keep you strong.

Go step by step with Me
For the pleasure of My company
Spend some time in prayer
And fill your mind with Me.


Go step by step with Me
And when the world closes in
I'll brighten each dreary day
On Me, you can depend.

Go step by step with Me
And when you can't walk anymore
I will surely carry you
Right up to heaven's door!

And see me in every flower.

And it is no mystery
That when you have hope and trust
Heaven begins on earth, you see!

LIFE IS A CONSTANT CHANGE

Life is a constant change
Young, you will not remain.

Welcome to my Garden:

Today's poem was not written from today's "Jesus Calling."
I wrote it several years ago, but it fits the theme so well.

THE CHRISTIAN DRESS
Life on earth is transient
   here we can never stay.
To the Christian it's just a dressing room
   for some eternal day.
A place to clothe our soul
   in the house God loaned us for a time,
And the garment we 're to wear
   should be a very special kind.
First the gown of love
   no other can compare,
Then the robe of faith
   that we all should wear.
The shoes of steadfastness
   we should wear upon our feet,
Then the cloak of hope
   should make our garment most complete.
And when our souls are dressed
   the way God thinks that ought to be
He simply calls us home
   to live eternally!

SACRIFICE OF TIME

Sacrifice of time
Belongs to Me, you see,
So come and sit a spell
And communicate with Me.

When it seems you have so few
There's the same amount of time
For everyone, even you.

Sacrifice of time
Sit quietly, let My presence flow.
If you take the time
My peace within will grow.

Sacrifice of time
It's hard to fantom the blessings it will bring
When you sit a spell with me
I will make your heart sing.

I've engraved you on the plans of My hands
So you will always be with Me
Never will I forsake you
For I died for thee.

That are nail-scarred and torn
I paid a price for you
So you would never feel forlorn.

I've engraved you on the palms of My hands
Nothing can separate you from My love.
All you have and hold
Are My blessings from above.

I've engraved you on the palms of My hands
In adversity I'm still there
I see your worry and anxious thoughts
For you I'll always care!
