A Poetic Thought-Be Encouraged


I want to leave with you these lyrics  to a song my husband wrote when he lost his job. God told him in so many words that they let you go, I didn’t.

To be encouraged means:  to give support to someone so that they will do or continue to do something or  to give support, confidence, or hope to (someone).


Sometimes in this life we are faced with despair,

And it seems sometimes that there’s just no one there.

Cast burdens upon Him His Word has proved,

That the righteous shall never be moved.

Sometimes in our trials it just seems too much,

But we must remember that Jesus is touched

When it seems like it’s just too much for you to face,

Go boldly to the throne of grace.

Even though we are still here in this world of strife,

Still God’s loving kindness is better than life

Even though we’re not able to see our way through

Remember God is always true.

So be encouraged in spite of your test, my dear friend,

Living for God is much better than living in sin.

If we just keep His Word hid in our heart,

We will never, no never depart.


Be encouraged in spite of your tests,

Stay true and you will be blessed.

Staying honest is a very important thing,

And in glory His praises we’ll sing.

I am an author and a retired minister. My passion is helping others find their sense of self and identity after so many years of losing my own. So often we go to church and are still not aware of our disconnection with our true selves. The person inside that God deeply values. My husband and I have been married for over 30 years and have 3 children. I love gourmet cooking, swimming, all kinds of music, and political and religious discussion- the two things my mom said never to talk about at the dinner table.
