Oh God, My Comfort

Oh Lord

You know my fears

You see my struggles

It is only through you that these will be removed



You see me in the dark

My soul filled with burdens

Like those on Christian’s back

Dear Jesus

My life is yours

But I feel so drained

I hide behind a smile that is only a lie

Abba, my Father

My tears fall down behind closed doors

I know I am not alone

I feel you holding me in your hand as I confide in you

Jehovah Jireh

Grant me the peace which my grieving spirit longs

Calm my sea

The storm I carry with me

This prayer I lift to you

Oh God of Israel

You move mountains

The rocks cry out to you

Cast away my loneliness, the sorrow I feel tonight

My Prince of Peace

I am drowning in this hardship

My heart continues to ache

I do not understand this depression

My King of Kings

I am so small compared to you

You take care of the sparrows

And the lilies of the field

You grant me your peace

Wonderful Counselor

I read the treasures in your Word

I find your comfort

One day I know I will reach that grand Celestial City


My soul filled with burdens

Like those on Christian’s back

Will roll away down the hill

Because of that redeeming blood I never will deserve

Christine Eaton is a student at Providence Christian College who loves stories and hopes to publish children’s books. Wearing flip-flops in December, frequenting the beach, and taking every opportunity to visit Disneyland, Christine relishes living in sunny Southern California. She can usually be found happily sipping tea, memorizing lines from the latest play she is a part of, caving into her addiction to chocolate, writing encouraging snail mail, or listening to music, which is usually something folky like Andrew Peterson or the Gray Havens, or some Broadway musical (and rarely anything landing between those two categories.) Art is one of her largest passions, and her walls are covered in her sketches and paintings. Christine yearns to use her skills to glorify God by illustrating and writing her own children’s books that will teach children more about Jesus. Some of her favorite authors include A.S. Peterson, Francine Rivers, Louisa May Alcott, and Andrew Peterson. She is so thankful for the opportunity to manage Kingdom Pen’s social media accounts and help out around the Kingdom wherever she can. From the encouragement, enthusiastic young Christian writers, and her fellow staff members, KP holds a huge place in her heart and she is excited about encouraging young writers to write well and glorify God through their writing.
