Pained Sister

Jesus is mercy and grace. He loves and He heals. He sees and He cares.

Susie Stewart


you have known much pain

You have been doubled-over

in life

for such a long time

And yet,

you have faithfully come

to worship

You have begged for healing

from your low-perspective infirmity

And yet it continues

and continues

Faithful sister,

your God has seen your pain

Your God has seen

your circumstances

He has seen your faithful heart

Continuing to trust

continuing to come

to Him

And just when you think

it has been too long

to be noticed

He speaks your name

and sets you free!

And your bowed position of humility

and pain

has produced in you

a strength and an inheritance

for eternity

You are loosed

from the weight

of the world

Sister, I see your faithfulness

and your love for the Master

You praised Him bent over

and you praise Him standing tall

Always trusting

bringing glory to Him

– Susie Stewart

One Sabbath day…
