I know you are hurting
I can see the tears
I feel your pain
But I value the final product
More than the process
Your destination will make you forget
The pains of the process
When you lift that trophy up high
You’ll forget the painful training process
Be very strong and courageous.
Do not be deceived by my look
Many issues are hidden beneath my dress
Do not be deceived by my laugh
So many tears are concealed therein
Do not judge me by my skin
I’m struggling to hide a myriad of scars.
Beware of those who profess love but shun commitment.
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.
With eyes full of tears
I stare into the distance
Wondering how this could be,
I search in his eyes for a glimmer of hope.
But all I see is darkness and void
I look for a string onto which I can hold
There is none, ‘cause it was never meant to be.
Then I resign myself to the fate that is
And with a sign that spells my deepest anguish
I look into his eyes and dare say
“Goodbye my friend, my beloved,
You belong to the past I long to forget,
There is no place for you in my future”.
I see you in that dark little room
All alone and lonesome in your thoughts
Wondering what is driving everyone around
To that frenzy of excitement and craze.
I see you wiping a tear from your cheek
Asking yourself why you have to go on
When there is just so little to live for.
I see you, angry and bitter and broke
Because you can’t join in the celebration
Not because you don’t want to
But because you don’t fit in.
I see you draw the blinds in frustration
“Who cares if I don’t go out?
No one’s gonna miss me anyway.
They’re all having fun out there.”
I want to tell you dear friend
That someone misses you so bad
Though they may not have the courage to say so
They miss that smile though so rare.
Jesus came for you too my friend
Any little act of love, joy and peace
You pose this season
Honors and welcomes your Friend to the earth.
So go out there and join the celebration
Not because you feel like it
But because He feels for you, just you
And wants to hold you in His arms.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU. JESUS CARES, YES INDEED HE DOES. HE SEES YOUR PAIN, SHAME AND LONELINESS. HE COMMUNICATED IT TO MY HEART AND GAVE ME THESE WORDS JUST FOR YOU. I CAN FEEL YOUR YEARNINGS AND DESIRES. NOT BECAUSE I’M SUPER HUMAN, BUT BECAUSE I’VE BEEN THERE TOO. HE WIPED AWAY MY TEARS; HE WILL DO SAME FOR YOU.
