There is a river of grief that is dammed up in my head.
It brims over its banks and pools behind my eyes.
It spurts out of my mouth with words best left unsaid.
And surges from my lungs in shallow gasping sighs.
“This isn’t fair! Why? There must be an answer.
God, please don’t let the dam break,” I moan.
"I’ll drift away. I have no heart anchor.
I can’t hold back this flood on my own.
This great river of grief must be diverted,
My bulwark can’t fail: there is no place to break down.
The current is strong and the waters are dirty andclouded.
I can’t swim the tide of grief; I’ll drown."
Then I heard the Holy Spirit through the rushing torrent.
“Let Jesus, your Savior be a canal for the pain.
Wait on the Lord, be faithful, be patient.
He has the power and the will to give you joy again.”
