Clinging To Our Savior’s Hands

Post by DeaconSteve » Wed Nov 28, 2012 2:51 pm



Clinging To Our Savior’s Hands


In the chilly hours and the minutes of uncertainty,
I long to be in the warm embrace of Your arms.
To know that I am living a righteous and meaningful life,
And together with many others, that we can endure any harm.


We are, or will soon be, facing trials and persecution as never before,
Amid all that is taking place by the claws of evil all across our land.
Death lurks as a reality, wished by ruthless satanists that evil breeds,
Caring not about the lives subdued, especially those who take a stand.


Not so much do we fear for the life we breathe, as given to us at birth,
But the life of our spirit, the life that clings to the saving hands of God.
Our will to endure the onslaught of evil remains a very real concern,
But bonded together as brothers and sisters, onward we will trod.


Time after time we will be pursued to relent unto evil’s claws,
But we will forsake such an attack, as together we go in prayer.
No force beneath heaven, on earth, or below will we bow too,
Knowing that Jesus, our Victor and Protector, is always there.


We will not relent to evil’s claws, though the jaws of Satan may bid to us,
But keep him at bay for the sake of our children and our grand children too.
For together we will stand, and united under the shield of the Master,
We will merge our wills with that of our Lord’s as we see our victory through.


In daily and constant prayer, we will submit our will to only you O Lord,
For You have been our guide thus far, and will lead us to the promised land.
Away from deception and oppression, as this soil is tainted by evil deeds,
Armored with Your gospel message, we will meet the challenge as is Your plan.


By ourselves we are helpless to defeat that which wants to hold us down,
Only with Your angels leading the charge, can we hope for change to come .
Our wills merged with Yours, we commit ourselves to this great cause,
Those who oppress the helpless, will merit the fires of hell after this battle is won.


Ever so mindful of what lies before us, not forsaking a single soul,
For no greater glory is there dear Lord, than to lay down a life for a friend.
True to the gospel, we reach out to the weak and lead them to Your fold,
Alone, we are the weak ourselves, and cannot relish any glory to it’s end.


Safe in Your embrace, we take courage to face the trials that lay ahead,
With confidence and resolve, through fervent prayer for ourselves and others,
Mindful that we are mere servants, called to give and to not receive a reward,
For our destiny is written in Your heart, for those who forsake no sister or brother.


You alone O Lord, are the Victor over the claws of injustice sweeping this land,
The people draped in confusion and fear, looking for answers they cannot find.
Good has always conquered evil as has been Your Will as we go this journey,
That when we cling to Your Saving Hands, we are Yours alone for all time.

AMEN!!! No force beneath heaven, on earth, or below will we bow too,

Steve,
I Love this and it has a message we all need to hear. There is so much going on and as long as we cling to our Saviors Hand we have a hope as Christians that others don't understand but need to see.

God Bless You Love Eva

Thank you Brenda and Eva for your comments. I believe that, as a country, we need to put God back as our focus, before anything better is going to come about, and the best way to do that is to first of all, to pray and to pray always. Praying always doesn't mean that we need to kneel or sit down all day. Prayer is lifting up our hearts, soul, and mind to God. We can do that in numerous ways, and how each is able. God blessings to you dear friends.

Thank you dear friends B.J., Dough, and Pastor Shirley for your comments, encouragement, and input concerning this poem. I hope it did not come across that am advocating fighting, as the only fight that I believe that must be, is the one for our religious freedom, and the battle that we must go through, which is called, "Life here on earth," but the life that God has birthed to us, that upon it's ending a new life, His life of eternal joy and freedom will be ours. Again, thanks for your gracious comments. All my love and prayers for each and all.
