Hitting Rock Bottom

by Danette Kettwich

I never thought that I would ever hit
The valley of this hard rock floor
Or into this canyon I would submit
I feel like I've washed up on the shore

Afraid of what else I may have to lose
I feel as if I have almost lost it all
This complex way; I have to choose
The path bordered by a towering wall

Life full of all these uncertainties
Observing the last hint of hope
I no longer know where I should be
And I'm not sure how I can cope.

Emotionally this life seems shattered
This path, not where I thought I'd be
Even though right now I'm tattered
I know your hand is still guiding me.

When I look back upon this life
What still sustains in time of need,
Will be the choice to follow Christ;
Giving hope and love that will lead

The Lord my help, my assurance
Even when I feel I'm at my worst
Lord, I need faithful endurance
I need water to quench this thirst.

I had a false sense of protection
Praying for Your unbroken hedge
I would never fully value salvation
Without this trial; without the ledge.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I'm thinking more like Job. WOW! Revelation RIGHT THIS SECOND. Job lost everything...yet lack of a J-O-B, Americans are losing everything.

What a heartache this poem portrays. It reminds me of how Jeremiah must have felt when he wrote "Lamentations." I have just posted an article on his lamentations. It would fit the feeling of the person in this poem....Oh I am sure this poem will be a help and a blessing to many who read it...God's blessings on you, Dannette...Helen
