Truly, Your faithfulness has upheld me
Even in this deepest valley
Where there is no light and hope is dim.
I cried out to You in my distresses, O God
And You took pity on me.
Your hand reached down to comfort me
In the midst of my tribulations;
You knew my heart and saw
That I was not ready to be released.
The rebellion of my soul and heart
Were not yet yielded to Your perfect will.
How do I let go of that which
My eyes have not yet seen?
And how do I shut out the din
Of the lying demons,
Which torment my soul day and night?
These are questions
Which clutter my thoughts and seek to
Draw me away from You;
You, O Lord, are even in these queries.
You are always leading and guiding me
In Your quiet way;
Offering encouragement and hope,
And the promise of deliverance.
Lord, I wait patiently for You,
Knowing that You will release me
To do Your perfect and holy will.
I long to do the works that
You have ordained for me to do
Since the beginning of time.
Your promises burn in my heart,
Brighter and brighter,
And stronger and stronger
With each passing day.
At times I feel as though I will burst
With desire to see them come to pass.
Help me to see and hear only You.
In Your faithfulness
Lead me to that place
Of true repentance, reconciliation, and healing
