My heart needs encouragement,
Sunk in the depths of despair…
Overwhelmed by life’s turmoils!
When will my prayers be answered?

I cry, my tears hot and never ending.
How can this be oh God, my strength?
I am alone in all areas of my life…
No human contact – no tender touch

I walk in the Psalmist’s shoes,
My heart being torn apart!
I cry out my thoughts and pain,
You hear me and dawn comes once again!

There is a lesson here, I know…
Growing closer to my Strength…
Learning that He is my Provider in all,
And in the end, receiving His peace!

~Psalm 30:5b … weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

One Response to Overwhelmed

    Oh Kat, how timely this is….I needed that reminder today that GOD is near and is very mindful of all our cares. Sometimes it may feel that HE is so far away, but we know in our hearts HE is right there ready to love us and give us the strength needed when we experience the trials and tribulations of life.

    Thank you precious sister for your encouragement, prayers and support. Your poems are such a gift from GOD….what a blessing they are to the heart and soul!!! Proverbs 16:24; “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.”

    The LORD richly bless you for your faithfulness.
