This poem was written by my niece and Goddaughter, Alexia, as a Christmas present to my husband and me several years ago. I was very touched by it, because I know that it revealed so much of her heart. Thank you Alexia, for being the precious niece that you are to me.
God Came Down to Me
A poem by Alexia D. Ghering
Each time I walked with eyes cast down
and felt too weak to reach God in prayer,
it was then, he came down to me,
As he watched my footsteps falter.
Within my heart, he poured out his grace,
and gave me strength to walk on farther;
he patiently waited for me to recover
so once again, I could look up to the father.
He sees us when we can no longer stand
and it is then, he holds out his hand;
he shines a light and the darkness disbands,
for it is only he, who always understands.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
