With Jesus’ Help, I’m Writing Poems Again!
On We Go
A Poem by Libby Baker Sweiger
Some questions have no answers,
Like why do people die.
Why do they up and leave us?
All alone, high and dry.
They go to be with Jesus,
We understand and know
But our poor hearts are helpless
To absorb it and keep our grief in tow.
We go on and try to live our lives
One day at a time
Sometimes overwhelmed and lost
Sometimes crying all the time.
I wake up wanting to call my dear ones
Reaching for the phone ~
Then I remember Heaven is
Way beyond my dial tone.
Many years ago two babies I carried,
One lived almost a year.
Went home to be with The Father
I cried so many tears.
It’s been so long now, I am rarely very sad
I remember them with gladness!
for the little time we had.
I’m so happy its not over,
That thanks to Jesus, Life never ends.
We believe on Him and trust in Him
And on we go to see them once again!
Satan Came to Tempt Me 4/3/2014
By Jesus and @LibbyBakerSweiger2014
Satan came to tempt me,
He offered me wealth and ease
I wasn’t really moved my it,
I said “No thank you Please.”
He hesitated a minute and than upped his price
He said if you forsake the Christ
I will give you three wishes on a dice.
I’ve never been the gambling type.
It was easy to say no.
I said I really wasn’t interested
In any of his show.
I tell you what ~ he sneered at me:
I’ll take away all your friends.
That began to get to me
There were many like bookends.
I told him Jesus was my only friend,
I would not bargain him away.
He’d better leave and not come back,
He was wasting his time that day.
He snarled and left a parting shot,
When you are all alone, You’ll cry for my company
And want me for your own.
Little did he realize the magnitude of his mistake,
For I belonged to Jesus, never His Company to forsake.
And in His Love there was one thing I knew I’d never feel~
The heartache of bereftness, the sadness of Alone!
(God bless your evening and your day, Take comfort in the fact that no matter what the enemy offers you, the Lord is sufficient to meet every need, answer every doubt and will never let you go, YOU ARE HIS! )
