 Carol's Journey

Guided by His Hand

It was through my Mom's final illness
God's peace filled me in the stillness
His divine time came for her to depart
But her memory remains in my heart
It is never easy to lose someone you love
But God sends His comfort from above
Looking back, it will soon be four years
He was there and wiped away my tears

So much has happened since her death
I praise God for each and every breath
This is just some of what God has done
I give Him the glory through His Son

Eighteen months later, I wrote a rhyme
To a co-worker I encouraged over time
Six months later and a trial in my life
God brought release from all my strife

Comforted by writing a poem as a prayer
God reminded me that He is always there
I sensed Him leading me to write more poetry
Trusting Him in how it would become reality

A year past and He guided me all the way
A temp at work read my poetry one day
He indicated I should consider publishing
Reaffirming what others had been advising
By searching the internet, I received insight
Leading me to start my own poetry website
A year later, I sensed His timing and outlook
For my poetry to now be published in a book

I know God has blessed me with this gift
As an encouragement to others and to uplift
Have you found what He created you to be?
Listen closely to your heart and you will see
