Morning Come

I hurt.

Deep, I hurt

Dull ache, sharp pain.

Burning like fire.

Subsides, short sleep.

Explosive fire reawakens.

Terror, pain, burning fire again.

Now gone, now here, now asleep, now awakened.

Anger, frustration, torment, so not necessary,

WHY WON’T YOU HELP ME? Anger’s accusation.

Came a gentle whisper, a calm piercing, an embrace of love.

“I do not owe anything to you.

I do this because I love you deeply, completely.”

Sorrow, shame, full remorse – humility – repentance.

Tears of shame, I descend into a deep tunnel, a soft peaceful sleep of love.

Morning come,

Bright sun reflection bounces from new fallen snow through window softly.

Morning come, painless day. Pain gone away, healing to stay –

Soft peace love’s touch.

Morning come – to stay.


Note ~ The Lord healed me of an acute, chronic stomach ulcer the doctors could only treat. I was twenty-seven years of age and had suffered for ten years when He hearkened to my cry. I was there. He was there. We were alone together when He touched me. And healed of that which the doctors could only treat. His love healed me. Imperfect faith though it was, was made perfect by my loving Savior.

He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 

“What do you want me to do for you?” Luke 18:38-41

Lord, Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me. I do humbly beg You with all my heart for Your mercy and compassion. Though I am unworthy, I seek Your grace and trust in Your goodness. Jesus, I trust in You always, in all ways.

My Savior. He saves me everyday to carry on to completion. Each morning awakened anew, one day closer to the day of fulfillment of my salvation. Much closer than the day I first began.

    1. Thank you much! “To the word and to the testimony!” Isaiah 8:20

      Revelation 12:11 – “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

      Some verses that came to mind on the importance of our testimony, all that we have been witness to.

      1. There’s something about testimonies. It’s always on my mind and the Lord had me share a bit of mine at church last Sunday night.

    1. Thank you, Crissy.
      Yes, When He made clear He had no debt toward me and imparted the depth of His love into me. His pure love became much clearer to me. Such love is difficult to express in words and impossible to walk away from.
      God bless you too, Crissy! 🙏

  1. God gives us those stories, those touches, those times of saying “I am God and I am here. My presence is enough for you (and it is) this is Grace” In the telling others are brought into it.

    1. Thank you, Craig. But I didn’t mean to imply my life was a cake walk after that. He communicated to me I could trust Him in the fiery trials He was going to put me through for the purpose of service to Him. He has been faithful through it all with the recall of that healing to see me through rougher times. It hasn’t all been pleasant but I wouldn’t change a thing. Through it all He brought me into closer relationship with Him. I count that of exceedingly greater value than any illusion the world could ever offer.

      1. Oh, goodness, I didn’t see cake anywhere implied, LOL. You know, you remind of my own experience of His loving touch when I went through an ordeal a few decades ago, and how He most certainly used that to prepare me for what I’m enduring now. The Lord is so good and prepares His servants well.

  2. What a blessing to read your poem and notes, as well as the exchange in your comments with Craig. They ring so true with my own walk with our Lord. Our common experiences as sojourners are so heartening as walk in His strength and might to meet Him in the world to come.

    1. I so do agree, Dora! It is very heartening to have shared experiences with the Savior. It is more than confirmation. It is heartfelt encouragement spurring one another onward. Thank you for your encouraging comment here!
