In the midst of the pain it is so hard to trust / But know that our Lord above has a plan for all of us






I Trust You Lord!


              By Yvonne M. Terry


Lord, help me to trust you each and every day

There were days I thought you turned and looked the other way

Down deep in my heart and soul I was in so much pain

I was always told you had the power to send away the rain


In the midst of the pain it is so hard to trust

But know that our Lord above has a plan for all of us

Sister, the pain that you suffered was, oh, so great

But the Lord above will handle everything on your plate


Others will come along to help you heal

Accept their help until you again learn to feel

Accept the Love of a Holy God and all His ambassadors

For they will help you receive all His love and more


So look to the future and that very bright light

Trust and obey Him and you will win the fight

Yes, trust, trust the Lord above

For this wondrous powers and all His love

Sister Grief: Defined and Conquered in Jesus

By Yvonne Terry-Lewis

“Sister Grief: Defined and Conquered in Jesus” is an engaging book that confronts the universal experience of living with death and dying. The author personifies the personal loss of loved ones as “Sister Grief.” The book, partly autobiographical, provides a holistic plan for conquering grief through faith, through a special relationship with Jesus. This plan is designed to help navigate one through the grieving process. The book includes personal stories, poetry, testimonials, letters, practical suggestions, and strategies based on a love for the divinity in one’s life. Although the circumstances that cause grief may be sad, this book is filled with love, encouragement, and hope that lead one towards spiritual health and wholeness.
