Poem – Thankful and Grateful

While I lie in deep despair
While I suffer mortal agony
While I am alone, deeply empty into my bones
While I wonder what, if anything, will ever change…

There you go again…
I turn to You.
I gaze into your wondrous eyes.
I look into that beauty that is mine.
I allow it to wash over me and sooth me.
This perfect love, You I cannot deny.
I’ve turned away all others, but you have kept my eye.
Look at all You have done…
I believe You will keep on doing.
You keep me in perfect peace;
My heart is steadfast on Your love.
I suffer mortal agony;
I weep for tears of wanting Your glory to wash away fear.
Trusting, I set aside my wanting.
Believing, I set aside my despairing doubt.
Reality, You are within me.
I am not alone; not even if I want.

Thankful Lord,
I am so Grateful Lord.
Jesus died and bled,
For my life, so much yet unsaid.
I smile into the glory of Your Light;
I trust it is always shining bright.
My Savior, My Redeemer, My Creator, My All.
Be here, into Your arms I fall.
