FAITH AND FEELINGS

 

THE HEART FLOWS FASTER AND SKIN IS COLD

AS SHOCK SETS IN FROM A CRISIS BOLD.

WE HOLD OUR BREATHE AND SHADOWS FALL,

IN UNBELIEF OUR SOULS ABSORB IT ALL.

 

QUESTIONS SURFACE OF HOW, WHEN AND WHY SO?

THE WORDS WE HEAR CANNOT BE, DO LAY US LOW,

EMOTIONS FREEZE LIKE A FALL OF WHITE SNOW

AND THE ECHOES OF FEAR TRAP IN SILENCE MUCH WOE.

 

TEARS ARE HELD BACK AS FEELINGS YOU TRY TO HIDE,

SLID DEEP INSIDE, OF THIS PAIN WE CANNOT ABIDE,

A PRAYER FORMS IN YOUR INNER PARTS WITHIN YOUR HEART

YET SPEECH FLOWS NOT, FROM WHAT NEEDS SAID, TO START.

 

A SCRIPTURE SEEKS YOUR SORROWED MIND

UNBIDDEN, YET STRONG, IS STRENGTH OF A KIND

AND YOU CLING TO IT LIKE A FRUITFUL VINE,

AS IT FILLS WITH PEACE, HIS WORDS DIVINE.

 

IN HEBREWS GOD SAYS, ‘I WII NEVER FAIL YOU

NOR FORSAKE YOU.’ AND AGAIN SO TRUE,

A PSALM VERSE THAT TELLS US, ‘FOR YOU

HAVE NEVER YET FORSAKEN WHO TRUST IN YOU.’

 

SO BRETHREN, WHEN TRIALS TOUCH US DEEP,

LEAN TOWARD HIS MERCY AND DO NOT WEEP.

HIS WORDS GOD WILL KEEP, HIS LOVE NOR SLEEP,

FAITH AND FEELINGS HE, IN COMPASSION, WILL MEET.

 

Be Blessed.
