Today and tomorrow we will be visiting each other on the theme of praise. Take a look at this poem from my book, W.O.W.
Auxillo Ab Alto
I know that if I please You
I will be exalted in Your love
That blessings will rain down upon me
Like nectar from above.
Thank You for giving me the poem
That I just now wrote
For sending it to me Lord, as
To Your throne, I spoke.
Thank You for my being a recipient
Of Your amazing grace
Because it takes away all of my fears and doubts
And puts serenity in its place
No matter what kinds of trials I face.
I see Your justice and righteousness
They, like the sun, come shining through
So, I go where You send me
And do what you want me to do
Because I know that wherever I go and
Whatever hardships I see
That Your amazing grace and winged
Protection will continue to sustain me.
