Lean On Me

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Is anything too hard for thee?
Then, precious one, just lean on Me.
And when the burdens press, you’ll see
I’m here, My child. So lean on Me.
For I see all the pain you hide,
The struggles warring deep inside.
And I know where the end will be;
So trust My heart, and lean on Me.
Remember, too, that I’ve been there
In agony, and deep despair;
That I know all your hopes and dreams.
I’ll help you through; just lean on Me.
For I love you; and faithfully
Will do what’s best. Just lean on Me.
“Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven
and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm,
and there is nothing too hard for thee.”
Jeremiah 32:17

Lisa, this poem sings! It also gives us a position to be in as a child of God and as a communicator for Christ, so I highlighted your post on the Christian Poets & Writers blog - www.christianpoetsandwriters.c om.

You're so right, Mary - how else could we best minister to others than from our place in Him. Thanks for encouraging me, once again. And for passing this along. Praying it will bless those who read.
