Closer To You


I am very thankful

For the hard times

And trials that

Brought me

Closer to you

My trials gave you no pleasure

Because my pain

Is your pain

But in your sovereignty

And grace

You permitted them

You were

Always there

With me

In the storm

And through the storm

Thank you Lord

For your help

Grace and mercy

    Thanks Laura, I hope you don’t mind but I have tagged you in a post that is due to be published on Thursday AEST 6.00am. I’ve nominated you to write a post about kindness. Two quotes and some thoughts, no pressure if you don’t want to participate, but I wanted to encourage people to your encouraging site. God bless you, L

  5. Laura as always beautiful words, and ones to remember.
