An Ex Carer

My Life Is Not Over.

My life is not over because my spouse was called home
I am now free to take other work on
Please gently lead me to a task that is new
Somewhere love is needed; something I can do.

I cherish the safety of a home that is mine
Fearful to step out after such a long time
But Your world is beautiful though I see it through tears
Many folk needing You, but not aware, through the years.

So until You put my hand to another new plough
Hear my prayers for salvation for my family just now
Every day without You is a day that is lost
Yet You died for them at Calvary at such a great cost.

I want to be sure that we’ll all meet in heaven
I know You want them, and Your love is freely given
You have heard all my prayers and bottled my tears
My future is in Your hands, I won’t count the years.

Lord I Am Surrounded

Lord I am surrounded by Your love
I am wrapt and held and shielded by it too
My pain and trials disappear within the circle of Your arms
From here my world is beautiful with You.

Lord I am strengthened by Your love
My fears are groundless and fast fading shadows
I can stand tall and face the future with a smile that comes from You
From now my world is wonderful with You.

Lord I’m made alive by Your love
The love that reaches out to all around
I can hold out my arms to comfort those that mourn
Just because my life is comforted by You.

Lord my life’s made new with Your love
My past held in Eternity by You
Every step I take with You, You will show me what to do
And all my life will be a monument to You.
