At Morning’s light

At Morning’s Light

a poem for those who grieve with hope

by Tracey Russell  images-1

In deep despair

of darkest death,

I fear the cease

of every breath.

Grief uncontrolled

I try to veil,

the sorrows cry,

of mourners wail.

Alas, my victory

came into sight,

arriving swift,

at morning’s light!

The final hour

released all pain,

suffering ceased,

as Jesus came.


 Lifted high

within His grasp,

no more tears,

the old now past.

Behold He won

the journey’s fight,

 Heaven revealed,

at mornings light

Holy City


no more pain,

as souls ascent.

Radiant Glory


praise overflows,

arriving there.

Finally home

healing found,

before the throne,

true love astounds!

As  flesh and heart

will surely fail,

the strength of God,

can now prevail!

Peaceful rest

 faith now sight,

death overcome,

at mornings light!

Do it Afraid!

Do it Afraid !

Do it afraid !

A poem written for you by Tracey Russell to help you jump into action!

You’re all set and ready to start,

then something happens in your heart-

Paralyzed, you just can’t jump

 Motivation hits a slump!

Something tries to push you back

hold you down, turn you back!

Is it the thought you won’t succeed?

Will God forget to meet your need?

Emotions swirl and grip you tight,

but this is when you need to fight!

Do it Afraid!

Hold your nose, if you must!

leap with faith, learn to trust!

DO it Afraid, jump in the air

You’ll always find God waiting there!

He gives you strength for each new day

He rewards your effort along the way

Do it afraid, Push back tears

Don’t give into gripping fears!

Remember a time within the past,

You made it through, when you couldn’t last?

You are stronger than you know

God uses risk to help you grow.

So do it afraid, whatever the call

It’s better than not doing “it” at all!
