Hope In Him

I find inspiration for my writing everywhere. I find it in personal experiences, conversations with family and friends and I find it often in reading other people’s work.

I just visited a dear friends blog and read her latest post entitled “Trekking to Hope”. You can read her work at www.jenniferswoish.com

This poem was inspired by her words.

“Hope In Him”
– Marie H. Fitts

Oh for eyes to see a future
That is not yet realized
A vision in the distance
Where clearly love transpires

Oh for patience to allow The Lord
To work it all out in His time

Until tomorrow rests in today
And I can clearly see my way
I will trust only in Jesus name
And put my Hope In Him

When troubles come and I can’t see
Beyond the road in front of me
When I am scared and all alone
A wayward heart without a home

I pray for faith just to believe
In promises made for you and me
Trusting not in what is seen
But put my Hope In Him

For solid faith in all He said
In all the words printed in red

For what is living without Hope
Of a brighter day to come
And what is faith without trusting
In our Savior’s Love

Until tomorrow rests in today
Until I clearly see my way
I will trust only in Jesus name
And put my Hope In Him

  1. Absolutely beautiful penned words. They just penetrate my soul Marie. Faith and trust…. tomorrow always has hope with those companions. Thank you my friend for sharing this poem, your expressions are simply lovely.

    1. Thank you for your kind words! It’s interesting to note, that my own words will speak to me again when I go back and read them later…as if the author wasn’t even me at all!

      That’s when I realize that I was not the Author, but His Spirit working through me with this Spiritual Gift of telling a story through poetry. The gift was given to me to share. But I often find that I needed to hear it the most!
