Lifting Clouds

Time to say goodnight but, before I do, here's my final submission for today. Tonight will be a good one! Lean on His everlasting arms, dear pilgrim pals!

I wrote just now...

Tossing, turning
Can’t get to sleep
Rehearsing what may happen
But never does.
Every hour
On the hour
Will morning ever come?
Suddenly night is gone
A new day has broken
I arise and
Put on my clothes
But can’t
Put off the blackness.
Friends come alongside
Some understand
Others don’t.
I write when
Nothing else helps.
I wrote an author
Who understands.
Just that simple act
That only took five minutes
Lifted the burden
Tore away the curtain
That veiled His face.
Rain began to fall
Outside my window
But the sunshine of
God’s love
Beat upon my spirit.
I had turned the corner
I would be alright.
God is still on the throne
He will care for His own
He did today
He will tomorrow.
I will rest in peace
Because God will be up
All night
And I gave Him
My concerns.
Good night!


  1. Beautifully stated, David.

    I'm so glad you turned the corner! How we need to praise Him for His faithfulness to us each day!

  2. Words that flow from "vessels" made of flesh, choked with cares under deep duress , any "responsible" thoughtful adult, concerned with the "tomorrows" can be laid low with the weight of "things" but God does give the Victory , and U , this past night , brother David , testified to HIS GRACE -

  3. Your writing and all the troubles you went through leaves me almost speechless...I thank God for His Faithfulness...His tender mercy is new every morning:

    Lam 3:21-25
    21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
    22 It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
    23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
    24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
    25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

    Praying for you,
    The Little Pilgrim Pal
