Tuesday's Trust - We are Weak but He is Strong…

Tuesday's Trust

We are Weak but He is Strong…


31 years ago today, my mother and father lost their oldest child: my brother Buddy lost his life to cancer on 10-10-1980 at the age of 38. My parents, (like I as of 8/2/2006), had to learn to live with the death of their child for the rest of their earthly existence…

Trauma throws us to the ground, some to ground zero. With Child-loss, most of us feel we are thrown below ground zero. It takes years to rebuild, restore, regroup, just to get up to ground zero!

Meanwhile in such a weakened state, can we believe the words of the little song most of us were taught in church as wee children?

Jesus loves me, this I know,

For the Bible tells me so.

Little ones to Him belong,

They are weak, but He is strong!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me,

For the Bible tells me so!

I write this poem as I process my cries before the Lord tonight:

In my weakness, Thou art strong;

Hold me Jesus in Your arms!

Protect me from the mean and wrong;

Soothe me now midst Satan's harms.

Child-Loss is the worst of crimes ~

Seeing evil befall our child

Renders us to our weakest times,

Seeing our little one defiled…

Amidst such evil, help us know,

You were there, quick to rescue!

Though evil befell, You loved so,

You drew our little one up to You.

We're left behind, raw and weak,

But You come along beside;

To our tender souls You speak

As we are Your wounded bride.

Thank You our child is in Your arms

Rescued from vile enemy;

Carry us now in those same arms,

Safe in You for all eternity.

Soothed by You, we rest in Thee.
