TRUST JESUS TODAY
I wrote this back in 2007 when I was going through a short moment of depression. I don't think it's some of my best work but I like to collect as much of my writings as I can. Thank you for reading and critiquing! God has helped me so much to think positive, live in His joy, and learn to be content.
My feet are steady on the ground but everything inside me is out of control
My mind whirls and tips and twirls like a whirlwind inside
Fear tosses me in one direction, confusion in another
Sickness and bad health hurl me down and I don't know if I can take much more
Insecurity drives me away from those I want to know, regret piles up to the sky
Feeling forgotten even though I'm not, emptiness eats away my soul
Day after day of the same old things with little feeling of progress
Will life continue in this way? Why must it be like this?
You have not abandoned me, my Lord, and you never will
You understand what I'm feeling and thinking
You're leading me to a higher place and there's a reason for all of this madness
You won't give up on me and I'll do my best not to give up on you
Please help me to trust you, know you more, and never give up
My pain is far from that of Job's and he trusted you still
When you've taught me and transformed me with your love
I will look back and understand what that was all about
The whirlwind inside me may or may not disappear
It may just change in different ways
But you, God, are strong and steady like a fortress
And you will protect me, lead me, and show me the truth, until the day I die
