Hand (Photo credit: yorkville)

“I waited patiently for the Lord;he turned to me and heard my cry.He lifted me out of the slimy pit,out of the mud and mire;he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3

In the darkness of the hour
When light does seem to flee
I think about my problems
I concentrate on me.

The Pit is dug much deeper
In the tears I shed for self
My mind is bruised and battered
As I crucify myself.

Falling deeper in self pity
The rain comes pouring down
I am floating, striving, struggling
To find some solid ground.

But then as I dare to look
From self to other ones
I am reminded the raging battle
On the cross was fought and won.

There’s a gentle light glowing
So gently on my heart
A hand extended outward
A hand that heals my thoughts.

I am walking on the water
I am flying in the air
His Peace is now within me
My God has heard my prayer.

Isaiah 40: 31 – 1980

About Doula Faith

I am first and foremost a child of God, "born again" into the Kingdom of God through faith in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He has called me to be an "Encourager" of faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. I have learned through some painful trials of His unconditional love. The apple of my eye, is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Living Word.
