Finding Yourself in Them

gaillovesgodspoetry

The help of others to someone in need.
To help the wounded of those who bleed.
To comfort the mourning as they ache.
To give for pleasure with no intention to take.
To ease the child so terrified by night.
To lift the darkness of the blind to light.
To cheer the soul imprisoned in gloom.
To save the perilous from impending doom.
To raise the child abandoned by love.
To restore a lost faith for God above.
These are just a few things my Savior does
Whenever we give ourselves to what He was.
Never think that your life is a waste.
Never quit, or misjudge Him in haste.
For in the life you give to Him,
You find yourself in giving to them.

You Send Me What I Need

Me and You have been doing this a long time now,
Walking through this thing called life.
Before I even knew that I was alive,
You were already saving me from my strife.
You knew the things that would pull at me,
And the things I would cause myself.
Yet instead of throwing Your hands up,
You lovingly stretched them out to help.
You placed Your hedge about me
And only allowed that which brought gain.
Only to protect me and strengthen me,
Would You ever allow any pain.
Yet even in those troubled times
You were faithful to abide.
I may have felt loneliness,
But You were always by my side.
You’re the Savior who met me on my knees.
You’re the Savior who suffered on His own.
And as Your Father sent You Simon and angels,
You send me what I need to carry on.
