I know,

but do not comprehend

I look,

yet fail to truly see

I hope in hope

put faith in faith

but lack the actuality,

this simple mind

disturbed by the

dichotomous reality

where dark, despair

eclipses hope

when all around

subsides and fails,

alone in darkness

left to grope

my heart and eyes

become as veiled

and yet,

You never

do forsake

but oftentimes

I fail to see,

the looking glass

becomes opaque,

a disconcerting,

mystery

 Tonight I cry

a thousand tears

and dare to ask

the reason why,

unspoken until now

I fear,

to question Thee

for who am I?

a wretched creature

of the dust

yet known and written

on thy hand,

Thy ways I have

to simply trust

but cannot claim

to understand.

My own cognitive

dissonance,

despondency 

and hopelessness

at odds,

with Thine

omnipotence

Thy sovereignty, 

and righteousness.

 Tonight

the Psalmist's

mournful cry

expression of

the dispossessed

'Eli Lama Sabachthani'

 resounds within

this aching

breast

 

 ~~~~~~

 

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I

This was written on my son's birthday. On the 5th of October, 1995, I held him in my arms for the first time. When I wrote this, he was spending his birthday away from home in the most difficult of circumstances. I spent the night on his bed, holding his teddy bear, crying, praying, writing. Six months have passed and as I reflect back on this time and prayer, I note that this has been read by many. Someone told me today to hold onto God and don't let go. I needed to hear that and thought that I would pass these words on. He is faithful and cares. At times I feel so alone in all of life's struggles, but the reality is, I am not ... and neither are you. Hold on and may God bless you.

Thank you for the gentle reminder Pauline. You made me smile. I don't feel gifted in the slightest so should probably leave the book writing to the experts. Writing, simply expresses thoughts that would otherwise go unsaid and drive me crazy :) Human ears were always thin on the ground so I'm useless at articulating what is in my head, which at times, is maybe not a bad thing ...

Deb - you certainly have a unique and beautifully soulful way of expressing your feelings. God's ways are indeed difficult to understand, yet we know He has a purpose in all our situations. Your gift needs to be shared. So when will we see that book? P
