Here is the poem which set the theme for my book, Waves of Comfort, which is being published in early 2017 through WestBow Press. Check back soon to order your own copy!
WAVES OF COMFORT
By Brenda Drake
When your heart is hurting, come
Enjoy the holy presence of God’s Son.
The loving touch of the Holy Comforter
Will heal and fix your inner hurts.
When the world has walked heavily upon you and joy has fled,
Come and allow the Comforter to show you how to forgive.
When your mind is confused and you do not know the way to go,
Come and allow the Word to guide – so you can in the Spirit flow.
I’ll fill your heart with gladness and your mind with truth and power
I’ll fill your heart with love in the most world’s troubling hour.
Waves of comfort flow to you and through you to lift and to edify.
Waves of God’s goodness are your eternal supply.
Beauty for ashes, mourning is by joy replaced,
All is provided by God’s provision of grace.
Waves of God’s mercy flood the land,
Overflowing hearts and minds of those that seek to understand.
Great, abundant, heavy showers of love,
Come from the Lord above.
Whatever you need, and whatever you desire, well and fine,
Will be, provided in God’s time.
Come, and allow the Sweet Spirit to touch,
You in your deepest need with His, waves of love.
2 Thessalonians 2:15-17
Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.
