When we are feeling overtaken by our troubles we forget God is in control.
We read in the bible that his love is sufficient.
Then why do we always worry when things donít go our way?
We question God on why he isnít seeing us through the tough times.
Feelings of loneliness and despair surround us.
Mood swings start to take control of our bodies and we hurt our loved ones.
Then when we come to the end of the line, enough is enough.
We get on our knees and we weep and cry out to God for help.
Our prayer is finished; we open up the bible for a word from God.
We sleep awaiting an answer, hopefully through a dream.
The next morning we pray again; we feed on the word.
The day seems easier to handle, the worry has gone.
Another night and we pray and meditate on the word.
As we sleep we realise our troubles disappeared when we spared time to worry about God.
Our worries come to an end when we spend more time with God.
Everything comes together when we let our father take control.
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. (Romans 11:36 KJV)

This reads more like prose than poetry; consider arranging it in 2 or 3 paragraphs instead of one sentence per line. I've definitely experienced God's hand through dreams, too. Thanks for this encouraging word.

I saw the word "control" a couple of times - and thought perhaps I was critiquing the wrong topic; however, this piece makes alot of sense. Maybe it isn't on the subject of "Help", but when we let God control our lives...we do get help! An inspirational read - well done.
