A Little Book of Poetry: For When Night Seems Dark is a compilation of heartfelt poems. They acknowledge the worldly struggles we face and offer the hope and promise of a loving God who stands with us in the darkness. Author Kathi Burg offers light ‘for when night feels dark’ and strength during struggles. The foundation of each poem is an inspirational Bible verse that offers an opportunity for self-reflection.
There’s something for every aching heart here: poems for depression, for the aging, medically challenged, broken-hearted, weary, fearful, and even the doubters. With titles such as “Hearts in Pieces”, “Every Single Tear”, “His Care in all Things”, and “Tired Feet”, this Little Book of Poetry speaks encouragement to the downtrodden.
The beautiful watercolor illustrations by Kayla Phan capture the emotions of the poems, from darkness and sadness to hope and love.
How this book affected me:
I’m not in a particular period of struggle in my life, but I could clearly see and feel the beauty and comfort of these soothing and inspirational poems about trusting God and God walking with you through the storms.
