Feeling empty and abandoned,
Lord, You seem so distant, almost unreachable,
Frustration in every direction,
Precious gifts stolen,
Guard down and enemy attacked,
Ransacked, plundered, devastated,
Hurt, stifled, bound,
How? Why? What happened?
Confused, bewildered, baffled,
In much need of answers,
World spinning out of control,
Completely off kilter and out of sync,
Chaos so distracting…
Mind, Soul, and Spirit suffering, hurt, GRIEVED!
Fear, anxiety, doubt, confusion,
Captivity a horrible consequence,
A cry for help spoken, groaned, even shouted,
Help me understand!
Yearning for wisdom, discernment, direction-
Loose the chains and let freedom be in abundance!
Your presence necessary for survival-ESSENTIAL!
Forgiveness, approval, mercy a must,
Oh, come quickly to the rescue
Drench me with Your Spirit, yes, the calm of Your Spirit
Wash, teach, strengthen, renew,
Speak peace to this storm.
An expected breakthrough, revival on the horizon,
Ask and it shall be given…
An answered prayer!
The parting of clouds, the clearing of fog,
The light of the Son penetrating to the innermost,
Shackles falling, hope restored,
Taking back what the enemy stole,
Vessel Filling-not going down without a fight!
God IS on my side, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
Praises go up despite circumstance! Faith is increased-Strike 1 Big blow to the enemy,
More praises go up! Prayers and shouts of thanksgiving-Strike 2 Yet another big blow,
Trusting God, forsaking all else- Strike 3- Enemy down for the count.
Victory in Jesus…Vengeance of God…Enemy DEFEATED!
My God, my Provider, my Strength, my Joy, my Peace, my DELIVERER!
From victim to victor…With God, ALL things are possible!
