The adversary pierced me with dart.
It got past my armor and hit my heart.
Shocked. Surprised! I never saw it coming.
First reaction: take off running.
But, there’s One who knows the depth of my pain.
Jesus is there when life is only rain.
He holds me tight and helps me to walk.
He listens intently when I need to talk.
“This will pass,” He whispered in my ear.
“I’ll carry you through. I Am always near.”
Though it seemed the pain would never cease,
The sense of His love was on the increase.
Suddenly, the rain clouds began to depart.
Healing from heaven poured into my heart.
The wound that seemed like it would never heal
Is now like a dream; no longer real.
All pain has vanished in the Presence of the Son.
Joy and peace from His Spirit has come.
Now, I wonder why I ever got so down
When the truth was Jesus had it taken care of all along!
