Phyllis Strong

Blessed, Broken, and Taught

I wrote a poem some years ago
"Are Tears Considered Prayers",
because of things so heavy on me,
I couldn't utter a prayer.

You know those things
you just say; "LORD! "
and tears begin to flow.

Those things; that's not to bring you harm,
but things that make you grow.

I've been blessed,
and I've been broken,
then shared the things I know.

Lord, how many pieces must I be broken;
so that Your Divine glory can show?

To find a friend, you must be friendly;
and I really try to be.
But the more I look, the less I find
someone who's quite like me.

It's as if You placed me by myself
so You can do Your master work.
And it's a lonely place for me;
and the pressure can really hurt.

But I have come to the point,
that I don't cry much anymore;
You're molding me into a new vessel,
that will give You glory the more.

Lord I trust You, Your will be done,
Your divine plan be done through me.
Holy Spirit help me to do God's will,
when trials are blinding me.

    Dearest Phyllis, You are not alone in this world. There are many like us who God has placed here for His reason. For all the trials that I lived in my life, I found that the only one who will be by my side no matter what is Him. God made us, He loves us unconditionally, and He helps us through out our lives. Its just sometimes we fight Him, not realizing He nows best. Go with God always. Alice (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
