Sometimes things happen so out of the blue,
They slam me in the gut,
Old fears resurface, making themselves known,
Thoughts come barging into my head,
I wonder where normalcy has flown?
What am I to do in these times, my Lord?
When my brain feels just like mush,
And from You, I feel torn?
Into Your arms my soul takes refuge,
My feelings placed at Your feet.
My heart cries out all its hurts,
My being pours out my grief.
You cover me with Your wings,
Whispering words of love,
Calming my anxious thoughts,
Bringing me peace like a dove.
There is no Comforter like You, O Lord,
No one even comes close.
I find my Rescuer once again,
In the shelter of the cross!
Psalm 31:7 I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love, because you have seen my affliction; you have known the distress of my soul.
