The Rock that is Higher


From my porch the tears flow as the rain
I wonder when they will end
Forlorn, deserted, forsaken
When will my groanings be silenced

So I continue to cry out
Believing that You will hear
As I beg for reprieve from this testing
A glimmer, a trace of expectation

Alas, hope springs from despair
Creeping in like a flickering candle
Bringing in light through the darkness
And flooding my heart with Son shine

My path becomes clearer with each step
As I walk to my harbor of rest
And meet with the Healer of my soul
At that Rock that is higher than I

~Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed:
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

    Ma Kat, your new poem is such a BLESSING from on high. It encourages the soul and gives hope to the child of GOD who are is going through times of trial and testing. A harbor of rest is coming one day…that is a surety, a promise.

    Isaiah 14:3a; “And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow…”
