I Am Here

My Soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail They are new every morning: Lord, great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:19-23.


I am here ..
He whispers

Deep within
I hear him.

I am still..

His presence
So near
Tears fall.

I am touched ..
So much.
He says
To me..

Daughter,I know..
I see
I hear
I care.

I Feel him ..
His joy
His strength
His love.

I worship him..
Head bowed
Hands raised
Giving praise.

His Holy Spirit ..
Surrounding me
Comforting me
Filling me.

You are here
I whisper.
Yes, child
He says..

I am here
I am near.

I love Lamentations 3:25 but in the ESV. I guess b/c I memorized it in that one.

The LORD is good to those who(A) wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.

That scripture is probably my favorite in the Bible, and I have used it so many times to get me through difficult spots in the road.
