HEALING BROKEN HEARTS AND WOUNDED SOULS

Posts tagged ‘hand’

When darkness reaches out for my soul…

When darkness like an invisible hand

Reaches out for my soul

When I cry for help

But my agony seems to fall

Very so often on deaf ears

Or ears that know not how to handle

When I feel like giving up on life itself

Because the road seems too dark and lonesome

And none but me tread such slimy path,

Then I remember that my Lord knows it all

He wants me well and whole and happy

He sees each tear that wets my cheek

And treads that lonesome path with me

Though I may not see him with eyes wide open

I know He is there because He promised to be

And then I find the strength to get along

Because Daddy is right there with me and for me

I will break into a new song and praise

For though my cheeks are wet with tears

My heart is warm with love unchanging

Thank you Daddy for being there for me.

THANK YOU LORD

I thank you Lord for being alive
I am thankful for lessons learned
I am thankful for battles won
I am thankful for traps escaped
I thank you for the faith to go on
When I carefully consider it all
I see your invisible hand at work
That wrought many a miracle
To bring me this far.

I will not weep for battles lost
Or whine for wounds incurred
I will sing praises to my God
Because He did see me through.
Though weather-beaten and woe-stricken
I look to the future full of hope
For He who has promised
Faithful is He
To bring me home save to Him.

STILL SEARCHING

When my errors past and present
Stare so keenly in my face
When all I’ve done and sadly so
Comes back to me in floods of memory
What do I do, where do I hide?

When fingers accusing point and blame
Eyelids peeled and eyeballs bright
Mouths ajar demanding to know
Questions to ponder, questions to answer
What do I say, where do I hide?

With trembling lip and shaky hand
I dare not look at them in the face
Will they see my tears of shame?
Who will know how deeply I regret
How do I tell it, where do I hide?

I never meant such evil to do
To live and love and be happy always
That is what I ever dreamed to be
But then, I fell and I fell again
And now I’m bruised and battered from the fall.

Judge me not so severely sister
Leave a space for mercy you know
I might be bold and strong and steady
But deep within I’m just a little girl
Searching for answers, still searching for answers.

I THANK YOU LORD

I thank you Lord for being alive

I am thankful for lessons learned

I am thankful for battles won

I am thankful for traps escaped

I thank you for the faith to go on

When I carefully consider it all

I see your invisible hand at work

That wrought many a miracle

To bring me this far.

I will not weep for battles lost

Or whine for wounds incurred

I will sing praises to my God

Because He did see me through.

Though weather-beaten and woe-stricken

I look to the future full of hope

For He who has promised

Faithful is He

To bring me home save to Him.
