Spiritual Poem

When the world seems to be closing in on you
And your troubles too hard to bare
Do like an old hymn says
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

When things get too stressful
And tears are filling your eyes
When nothing else is working
Try Jesus on for size.

When your heart is hurting
And there seems no end in sight
Call on your Heavenly Father
And He will make it right.

When things get too painful
And living seems to hard
All you have to remember is
Just let go and let God

    When seniors go through pain, the die has been cast and God cannot help you.
    It's His great design that is in place, we should ask Him for strength for each day to go through it.
