He's Always There

Lord, I really need your help
I cannot do this on my own.
I've tried all I know to do
But still everything is going wrong.

I'm praying and fasting,
I'm standing on Your Word;
I'm putting all my faith in You
Yet Your voice I have not heard.

I'm drowning in my problems.
Can't you see I'm going under?
Your Word says You'll hold me up;
About that, I'm beginning to wonder.

Don't You see all my pain?
Don't You know about what I'm going through?
My present help in time of trouble,
Please tell me, where are You?

Where are you when the tears are falling?
Where are you when I'm searching for strength?
Where are you when my bills are due
And all my money is spent?

You said You'd never leave nor forsake me.
You said You'd never leave my side.
You said You'd always be with me
Your face You'd never hide.

So why can't I feel you?
Why can't I see your face?
Why don't I hear Your voice?
Why does my life feel devoid of Your amazing grace?

I'm crying out to You, My Savior
Please come and rescue me.
Remind me that You're there;
Extend your love and mercy.

My child, I am here.
I've been there all along.
I've never left your side,
You've got it all wrong.

I see you when you cry.
I feel when you are weak.
I know when you are in need,
Long before you ever speak.

I hear your prayers
I know every request.
I'm not ignoring you
I'm simply preparing you for my best.

My best answers
My best way of escape
My best plans for you
My best out-pour of grace

Have I ever not come to your rescue?
Have I ever let you down?
Have I ever failed to deliver you?
My child, I'll never let you drown.

I am your hiding place,
The shelter from your storm.
I am constantly extending my grace,
Keeping you safe from harm.

My child, don't doubt Me
My Presence is always there
I am right beside you,
even when you're unaware.

Holding your hand,
And wiping your tears.
Soothing your doubts,
and calming your fears.

When you can't hear my voice
When you don't see my hand
Know in your heart that I am with you
Forever working on your behalf.

My child, I love you deeply
You'll never fathom how much I care
You are my treasure
Trust me, Your Father is always there.

  2. That is POWERFUL, Sis. I don't ever want to hear you say you aren't a poet or you haven't
    written a poem since. . . .You are a writer and God has gifted you to do so in so many ways. This indeed blessed me!

    1. Rhonda, you are the sweetest encouragement! Thanks so much, sis! I'm learning to stop limiting what God can do with the gift He's given me.
