God Remains our Source of Courage_Greg Asimakoupoulos-A Hymn of Hope for Days of Despair
God remains our source of courage
when we're traumatized by terror.
When we're haunted by the headlines
and the violence everywhere.
Hear God whisper in the silence
"Don't despair, I’m in control.
Hurting hearts and broken cities
will at last one day be whole.”
God can feel the pain of suffering
when grenades and bombs explode.
When a dad is taken hostage
at a checkpoint on a road.
Then God whispers in the silence
“Justice will in time be done.
I will stand with those who need me
‘til my Kingdom fully comes."
God invites us to be trusting
when we find that faith is hard.
When we’re fearful for our safety
and our nerves are frayed or jarred.
Still God whispers in the silence
“Even when your faith is weak,
I will keep your feet from stumbling
when your way is dark and bleak.”

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
