It’s easier to forget my own troubles

I trust You, Lord 

I know You’re there.

But what about their struggles? 

Their anxieties?

I know You’re good

I know You care

It’s easiest to believe that I’ll be okay

I know You, Lord

In You there’s peace 

But what about their fears?

Their worries? 

How will these be eased?

I know that Your compassionate 

For You’re in my blood

I know You chase after those who run

But I hate the wait

How long will it take?

Until those who are hurting know Your love?

Then Jesus made a circuit of all the towns and villages. He taught in their meeting places, reported kingdom news, and healed their diseased bodies, healed their bruised and hurt lives. When He looked out over the crowds, His heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd. “What a huge harvest!” He said to His disciples. “How few workers! On your knees and pray for harvest hands!”

Matthew 9:36-38 (MSG)

For those who prefer/need something loud. (I’m loving this song.)

“I can be patient. But I’m not waiting.”

“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Ephesians 3:14-19 (NIV)

For those who prefer/need something soft and soothing. (This one’s great too.)

    1. Oh good! I need to get more poetry on my blog too. Pippi is me. It’s a nickname. There’s a full explanation on my “Purpose” page if you need/want one. But that’s the shortest explanation.

      1. You have a lot of good poems already! 😄 Oh, okay. Cool! Kind of like Space Girl is me. Thanks for nicknaming me that by the way. 😃😊


      2. No problemo. ☺ Keep being awesome. I’ll check out that song later. After I post my poem on Facebook I need to catch a few more Zzzzzzz’s before I can get to anything else today. I’m a sleepy time T. 😆


    1. Thanks, Bridget! ☺ It’s my pleasure to share new artists and a variety of talent—from those who can be quite raucous to those who are much more mellow. It’s all good and has has it’s place and time. I’ve been on a bit of a loud kick lately though. 😄 There’ll definitely be some lovelier lighter stuff to come too.

    1. Thanks! Oh good, I hope you enjoy them, or at least one of them. At the moment I am smiling.
      😃 <—- see, teeth even. Hope your smiling too.


  1. Very thoughtful and thought-provoking poem Tina. It is a concern as to what others are doing in these difficult times, those who don’t know Jesus or who have become lukewarm in their relationship with Him. I am praying that many will come to or back to the Lord through this crisis realizing that He is the only one who can save and heal and protect. Thanks for sharing. God bless.
