I’ve been on a journey,
a worn out path;
A path too familiar,
an old beaten path.

Once you said,
"from you I’ll remove your heart
of stone and give you a heart of
and in me you placed a fragile
heart for that stony heart
that was once in my chest.

You did not warn me of the pain
that would leave me weak and
you did not prepare me for all the
agony and all the hurts
that others have left.

In my grief and in my pain,
I cry out to you,
"Lord, Lord, where are you,
I cannot find you?
Why alone I find myself in all I do?
Have not all my prayers reached you?"

It is a dark and lonely path,
that path of grief and pain.
I should be angry, I should be bitter.
instead in all my tears,
I find ways to praise and thank you
in the midst of all my fears. 

Alas you answer, "I have left you not,
and I have heard you;
you asked me for strength, and
you asked me for peace."

"I gave you courage,
and I brought you peace;
I have wiped away your tears,
and have taken all your fears."

"I took away your anger, and
I took away your rage;
I took away the sting of bitterness,
and it is MY heart you carry
in that once empty chest."

"I was there, holding your hand,
guiding you to do the right thing;
and, it was me who held you when you were weak and faint.
Now let go child, and give me the rest of your pain."

That painful journey, on that worn out path.
The path too familiar, that old beaten path;
does not seem as dark, and does not seem as long,
because you will always be there to right all the wrongs.


You Are Always There

♥ You Are Always There ♥

In the darkness when I’m afraid and

the nightmares become so real,

I only know to call out your name and you are there.

When I’m alone, rejected, and forgotten and

there's no one to fill that void,

I call out your name and you are there.

When I feel as though the world is on my shoulders and

I’m so, so tired that I can’t go on any longer,

I call out your name and you are there.

When the walls seem to close in on me and

every breath I take becomes painfully harder,

I call out your name and you are there.

When I am sick and the pain is unbearable

that it brings me closer to those who are suffering,

I call out your name and you are there.

When my sadness and my grief overcomes me and

there’s no one around to hug me and wipe away my tears,

I call out your name and you are there.

There is only one name I know that will bring me comfort and strength,

in all my pain and all my weakness,

in all my lonely and desolate moments and that is

your name... Jesus.

And although I don’t see you and many times I don’t feel you

but when I call out your name, I know you are there.

I know you are there, because

I am still here.

Thank you Jesus for always being there!

" I will never leave thee; nor forsake thee"

Hebrews 13:5

Lord, I See Your Splendor


I see your splendor at each sunrise;
each color you mix is such a prize.

The earth awakens with beautiful sounds,
as your sweet breath flows gently down.

I love your essence in all living things;
your love for all your angels sing.

Now the sun is setting and I can't help to ponder,
if you spilled your color containers with such a wonder.

You paint your sunsets with beautiful randomness,
but they blend precisely and not with abandonment.

Excited I lay myself down to sleep,
but awake I stay to take a peek.

I see your splendor in everything,
my heart cannot contain what joys you bring.

To be with you is my desire,
please hurry 'cause for you I'm on fire.
