We Never Knew

In Apples of Gold by Nina GausLeave a Comment

Psalm 34:15

“The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.”

Proverbs 5:21
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.”

by Nina Rose Hall

Thunder crashes in my soul

Patience now has taken its toll

Tears have fallen like the rain

Then dry up desert-like again


Storm winds blow upon my life,

Sadness, sickness, times of strife.

All of these God sees me through,

But what of those I never knew?


Surely there are storms each day

That God forbids to cross my way.

They would have been part of the plan,

But as we prayed, ceased by His hand.


All the trials that could have been;

Protection that we can’t begin

To thank our Heavenly Father for;

His watch-care, so secure.


And as we travel blindly on our way,

We’ll take the blessings and burdens of each day.

For soon we’ll reach our home beyond the blue,

And thank Him for those storms we never knew.

Proverbs 21:31
“The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.”

Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.

She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
