Oh, the upheaval
In life we go through,
When things seem to settle
Another crisis breaks through.
It makes for emotions
That go up and go down,
A roller coaster in action
Or a merry go round!
No matter how scattered
And all over the place,
Our feelings can settle
When God’s in our space.
Crisis is constant
It surely seems so,
But when He is with us
We can be high when we’re low.
We never can know
What to expect day to day,
Whether trauma or drama
The Lord makes it okay!

Those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength. They
will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31


  1. Beautiful poem, Beverly. I just taped a paper to my mirror that says:
    Look at the world —- Be distressed
    Look in yourself ——-Be depressed
    Look to God —— Be at rest
    Keep writing your beautiful poems, Beverly, I am sure you are encouraging many people every day.
