The Flame

My body shakes when I cry
from pain that's gathered up inside.
It's trapped - the pain
I know this well
To find some peace within this hell-

Impossible.

I can't succeed.
The battle's on
-the fight's for me.

Indeed, I felt my life be drained
Consuming me like raging flames;
Ignited by the spark of hurt
Now engulfed-
I shout these words.

"Lord, I ask you, why such pain?
I need you, Lord, to bring the rain.
I'm not equipped to fight this one.
I need you, Lord, restore the sun."

And just before I'd surely burn
The Lord leaned down and this I heard.

"Your suffering brings more than grief.
Each time it draws you close to Me.
I've watched you and I know your pain."

And with that, He put out the flame.



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

Wow this is powerful. I can definitely relate as I'm sure many others can too.

This reminds me of the scripture to count it all joy when you go through various trials. They do bring us closer to God, even though hard to endure at the moment.
