With This I Now Draw Near

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 9/29/2015

Dear Lord with this I now draw near;
A burden given me to bear.
For strength I ask with my whole heart
That I might carry all, not part.

I am faulty, willing but weak,
That is why Your strength I seek.
So on Your Almighty name I call
Lest under this heavy weight, alone, I fall.

But not quite alone for in silence I hear
That still small voice sounding in my ear.
Reassuring, powerful, sweet and strong;
In my aching heart You give me a song.

Almighty Comforter, powerful Lord,
Your character I have not fully explored.
Grace immeasurable, mercy unfailing,
Patience given for this sinner, failing.

To You dear Lord, I lift my voice,
In praise for grace and Your ultimate choice.
Your strength You've given in merciful love,
Now peace and rest I have from above.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬

Like I already told you,

Like I already told you, beautiful poem Damaris!
