About the Writer:
Sherrill Schlimpert

An ordinary suburban girl with an extraordinary passion for seeking the Lord’s will in her life, Sherrill is more than a poet. She is a retired elementary school teacher, mother of two grown children, and wife for over 31 years. One dreary morning's drive awakened her passion for writing prayer-poetry as God greeted her with a spectacular sunrise. Her flow of words and faith has filled two self-published books so far.



Strength For Today

By Sherrill Schlimpert

FromCream for Your Coffee…Sherrill's Book of Poetry


I sit here refreshed
After the incense
Of time spent alone with You.
Again, I am moved
As You have behooved
To reveal another truth.

My heart overflows
Because it now knows
The One Who can fill it, and so
I kneel in the morn
For at Your feet I’m reborn.
I’m amazed that You, I can know.

I’m so grateful for this time
When You allow me to climb
Into Your lap, where I want to stay.
For here all is peace.
I find such release
As I hear comfort
In the words You say.

But now, I must go
For You’ve called me to show
To others what I’ve found in You.
Though strength I lack,
Your provision I pack
As I embark on the tasks
I must do.

So help me, Lord,
To keep Your Word
In front as I go on my way;
It’s so easy to lose sight,
To walk out of Your light,
As I confront
The tasks of my day.

Give me Your strength
Which I need at great length
To accomplish what lays before me.
My feet move slow.
So take me in tow.
Beyond myself let me see.

Use this weary frame
To just take the next step.
For in You, peace is kept.
May all I do, praise Your Name.
