This message was given to me in my weakest time of a serious battle with cancer. God brought me through. This was written Sept 23, 2015

God sent His angels time after time

To help me cross mountains I couldn’t climb

This mountain was different; immense in size

So I prayed to God with tears in my eyes:

“Lord God, I need You; please send some help.”

He didn’t send angels: He showed up Himself!!


On the mountain, were many demons around

Trying to attack me, to knock me back down

Uncertainty and Misery with Anguish and Fear

Self Pity brought Doubt and Terror so near.

Insecurity and Gloom with Dread and Despair

We went right through ‘em like they weren’t there.


Looking back from the top of the steep incline

Only one set of footprints, they were not mine!

He stood me down on my trembling feet,

Took my right hand, and said, “Walk with Me.”

My body was weak from the battle within

But He’s been my strength time and again.


Comfort, Healing, Recovery and Peace

With God’s Calmness I moved my feet.

My feeble steps, were steady and slow

I will find Serenity in the valley below.

God on the mountain is still the same

As God in the valley; just call His name.


In the valley I’ll tell of God’s saving grace

How He brought me from a very dark place.

He is always my anchor who calms the storm

And gives me rest when I’m weak and worn.

Life will bring mountains time and again

If I can’t cross it, I know a Man who can.
