Lifting Me Up



Lifting Me Up

My life is full of both ups and downs,

As God filled my mind with things so clear.

He said I have something you can do,

Then called me to write; I don’t know why.


Tis an odd task He’s asked me to do.

Sometimes I wonder why He chose me.

My words do not come easy each day,

But the dark path He lights, I will tread.


Though I was busy writing this day,

I paused to thank Him for blessing me.

Should He have more thoughts for me to share,

He will give me time to write those words.


But if I should pass before I wake,

I am thankful He led me His way.

For when some folks sneered the things I wrote,

He was always there lifting me up.

    Beautiful, Tom! It’s exactly what I needed this morning as someone tried to tear apart an opinion piece I wrote. I love the line “For when some folks sneered the things I wrote,/He was always there lifting me up.” You may not like what I write but I write because God has led me to. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Jennifer. Thanks for stopping by the site. I’m glad the post had a timely message for you. It’s unfortunate someone did that to you. Everything we post will have some who like it and others who don’t. Sometimes I don’t even know exactly why I write certain things, but I know I’m following His led. I am thankful for those who like it and try to learn something from those who don’t—both are part of my learning process. Keep writing and don’t let things like that get you down. Take care and God bless.


  4. You are very welcome, Linda. Thank you for dropping by and for sharing your thoughts. God Bless!


  5. Thank you Tommy for saying what many, if not most of us who put pen to paper think and feel!
