Thoughts, Meditations of the Heart, Poems

Hope

All was bleak
Despondent, darkness everywhere
Only heard depression speak
My pleas to God--total despair

Your kingdom is joy and peace
Why do I have none?
Crushing oppression doesn't cease
Where are the promises of your Son?

Hope--Where has it gone?
Faith is draining slowly away
My soul cries out, I'm undone
Lord God please help me pray

Then I hear
I love you, child
No need to fear
You're just tired

Start leaning on Me
Not your own strength or ability
I've already set you free
Rely on MY creativity

Mercy removed the sadness dart
Grace healed my fearful wound
Gladness filled my heart
Drenched me with gratitude

Chains of hopelessness break
Such liberty! I'm truly free!
I made a horrible mistake
My God would NEVER abandon me
