His Hand In Mine

I trudged my way across the land
I tried so hard to take a stand
Doing what the good book said
Sometimes veering off the road instead.

Begging "Lord, oh help me please"
Felt my tears while on bended knees
Loving some so hard to love
Still looking to Him up above.

"Do you hear me, Lord, for I'm not sure
Life sometimes is hard to endure
The work is steady year after year
To keep this pace I feel the fear."

But I keep Him close within my heart
I truly try to do my part
I think I'll win, with His hand in mine
Yes, I do think I will be just fine!

    Has god ever actually spoken to you?
    Have you ever wondered WHY you Believe?
    The hands I hold are human
    I understand why
    Even how
    The majority still deny their own eyes
    As long as it leads to peace and love
    I am with you

    The rhyme and rhythm seem too laboured for my ear.

    A nice poem with a beautiful graphic and an appropriate title.
    'with His hand in mine
    Yes, I do think I will be just fine! ' - only with a clean heart one can have this kind of firm belief. Loved your poem, Marilyn.

    A prayer made with utmost humility and faith cannot go unheard. The person feels the presence of God around him or her. Simple words, perfect rhyme and a profound impact leads to the following:
    I think I'll win, with His hand in mine
    Yes, I do think I will be just fine!
