I Will Always Be With You

I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU

The cross caused His back excruciating pain
His muscles ached from the arduous strain
His body was bloody and badly bruised
From the beatings He took when He was accused

The crown of thorns was tightly in place
Causing blood to stream down His face
The crowd gasped as He went by
They knew today He was going to die

His preaching days now were done
He had been good to everyone
He healed the sick and raised the dead
And five thousand people He had fed

He never hurt a single soul
His Father's work was His goal
He knew this day would soon come
He was born so it could be done

He finally made it to the hill
Where the prophecy would be fulfilled
As they nailed Him to the cross
His followers cried over their loss

Two thieves were placed at His side
The bad one joked, the good one cried
Jesus looked in the good thief's eyes
And told him that day he'd be in paradise

A soldier pierced Jesus in the side
Making a wound deep and wide
Having bled out, Jesus was near death
He was about to take His last breath

The sky's darkness covered the blue
Jesus said, "Forgive them Father, they know not what they do"
Lightening struck, frightening most
Jesus said, "It is done", and gave up the ghost

A tomb in a cave is where Jesus lay
A large stone blocked the entrance, so they say
In two days two Marys arrived at dawn
The stone was rolled back and Jesus was gone

Jesus had risen from the dead
Fulfilling what prophets had long ago said
Our Savior guaranteed our eternal salvation
Give praise to the Lord every nation

Beverly, this is simply a beautiful poem. How tenderly yet with great strength you have portrayed the life work and final days of Jesus. I know that He must be reading this and smiling for what you have told here. Your poem, as I read it, showed to me that you are a great teacher, girl. A child could never have been taught about Jesus, yet to read this poem would without question explain exactly what this great man represented and what His life taught us all. Simply a beautiful poem and thank you for sending me the link allowing me to be graced yet again with your Angel Girl talent. Bless you !!

Love, Linda :) :wink: :wink:

Thank you, Linda, for your nice comment. Hopefully people will read this and realize exactly what Jesus did for them. Without Jesus, none of us would have gone to heaven. People still won't go to heaven unless they accept Jesus as their Savior. Since time may be running out, we must work doubly hard bringing souls into the fold. I am pleased you liked my poem. Jesus is pleased you took the time to read it.

May God bless you and always keep you close to His heart.

Love You,

Dear Benny....I am so happy you liked my poem. Yes, Jesus loves us so very much that He gave His life for us, so we could join Him in heaven. There is no greater love anywhere. I don't know if my poem is good enough for an E-card, but I thank you for saying it is. Jesus inspired me to write this poem, after I had my quiet time speaking with Him. I didn't know what to write for Easter and all of a sudden it came flooding into my head. Thank you for taking the time to read it. I deeply appreciate it.

May God always embrace you with His loving, healing arms and may He hold you close to His heart.

Love You,

Ah! Dear Beverly Rose Angel. What a beautiful name for a beautiful woman of God. God has blessed you with an exquisite poem about Easter. I was waiting for this my friend. For I knew in my heart that Jesus would send something wonderful and beautiful to you, to share with all of us. I so agree with Linda, this explains it all in a way that everyone can completely understand. You are an excellent teacher as well as a gifted poetress. Have a blessed Easter, my angel friend.

Love and Blessings Joyful Jan ))(( :D :D :D )))(((

My Dearest Angel,

Not only is this, in my opinion, the most beautiful poem you have ever written, but the artwork is totally awesome. You didn't have to tell me that it was "inspired" by Jesus. Anything this profound and glowing with such heartfelt love and perfection in every way is from the Lord. You have listened well and you have written a beautiful Easter message that needs to be reread year after year. It is a wonderful blessing to me this morning and I will be reading it more than once in this week. You have put true passion into this and it touches the soul.

God bless you, sweet Angel.........I love you and thank you for sharing this masterpiece with us today.

Love you,
Karen

Dear Jan....I am so happy you liked my poem. Thank you for your very kind comment. I really do hope people will read it and come away with the awe I experienced after I wrote it! It was as if I was walking along side Jesus on His journey up the hill to be crucified. My fondest wish is that this poem will bring many lost sheep back into the fold. Once again, many thanks for taking the time to read it. I appreciate it very much.

May God bless you and continue to hold you close to His heart.

Love You,

Dear Katie....Thank you for your wonderful comment. Yes, Katie, we must all fall on our knees and give praise to Jesus on Easter Sunday, as well as every other day. Jesus loves us so very much and made such a sacrifice for all of us, it is difficult to believe there are people who don't recognize that fact. We must pray very hard for those people, so they will join us in paradise for eternity.

I hope you have a very blessed Easter, you and your family, and may you always sleep with Angels surrounding you.

Love You,

My Dear Sweet Charge.....Thank you for your lovely comment about the poem. Yes, it truly was inspired by Jesus. I was beginning to think I wouldn't be writing an Easter poem this year, but Jesus came through for me.....again. The words just kept coming and coming, I know you know how that works. It amazes me every time it happens. Jesus knew my mind was blocked and He took over and unblocked it. Praise the Lord. I appreciate you taking the time to read my poem. It really means a lot to me. I know how very busy you are. I wish every Angel could have a charge like you. They would think they were in heaven, even when they were here on earth! I love the picture of the Angel. I might just snag it, if you give me permission.

God bless you and Michael always and may your Easter be filled with many, many blessings.

I think Jeff must have a split personality because sometimes he signs Edith and sometimes he signs Benny and sometimes he signs many other names. He is such a hoot. There is never a dull moment where he is involved. He is another gift from God, as you are.

Love You,

Dear Denise.....I am so happy the poem brought tears to your eyes. It did to me, too. Thank you for your wonderful comment. I deeply appreciate it. When one stops and really considers what Jesus went through on our behalf, it is difficult not to be touched by it. When you think of the torture and the agonizing death Jesus took upon Himself in order to open the gates of heaven to all of God's children, you can't help but be touched with deep emotions. Perhaps this poem will open a few more eyes and hearts to the wonders of Jesus.

I love the picture you posted. It is beautiful!

God bless you, Denise, and your family. May God always embrace you with His loving arms and may your Easter Sunday be a glorious day of celebration in honor of our Lord and Savior.

Love You,
