Up Against a Wall

At times you may feel you've come up against a wall,
And life seems to make no sense at all.
The troubles you encounter seem to block your way,
Causing you to struggle to get through each day.

This wall of problems can appear quite tall,
While you feel inadequate and very small.
With no end in sight and no way to go around,
A pathway through is what needs to be found.

God has the power to break through any wall
And is willing to help when on him you will call.
You need to acknowledge you can't do it on your own
And recognize that you are really never alone.

On God's wisdom, love and strength you can rely
To guide you through all obstacles, no matter how high.
With faith and a prayer you can safely walk through,
Knowing God will protect and always love you.

Very inspirational and so true: we are never alone, we just need to ask for strength, wisdom and guidance. The rest will fall in place.

How sweet a reminder of how our God loves us so. Thank you for once again renewing my mind and filling my soul with hope which can only come through God and God alone.

My back has been against the wall many times, but God and God alone seen me through.

I love you so much!

Marvin is right on when he said that you write inspirational poetry. All of us could use some positive and uplifting messages in our chaotic and stressful lives. Thanks to people like you who do that to the rest of us.

I shall add you to my blog roll so that I'll be able to visit you again.



Connie can you tell me what has happened to the blog Free Spirit by Marvin Wilson?
I went to answer his blog and it's gone.
