Relief or Healing

January 16, 2015

Where are you God in my pain
I can’t hear you or see you
My grief and fear are mixed
I’m broken inside

*

Who will come and help
I cry in desperation
Can you hear me, God
The silence is deafening
In unbelief and belief

*

You said for me to “Be Still”
And know that you are God
My anxiety blinds me
My fear imprisons

*

I need you to come
Keep your promises you gave
I am overwhelmed
There is no one to comfort
My body and soul feel dead

*

I need a resurrection
You understand all my grief
You meet me with compassion
I will wait for you

*

You always come at right times
My soul is refined by fire
False thinking I’ve depended on
No longer secures

*

I stand waiting for relief
Your comfort is far away
That is the way I’m feeling
I find no relief

*

“I have come to heal
To bring hope to the hopeless
Freedom for the prisoners
Give sight to the blind
Bring good news to the poorest
Give all the captives freedom”

*

Healing instead of relief
Is the promise He’s given
With mixed feelings do we hear
Choose who we will trust

*

Reading Psalm 16 and 46 reveal a narrow path of hope. We all find ourselves at some time in the spot these reflections communicate. When I decided that I did not want relief but I wanted healing above all, a pinhole of light entered my world. I chose to move toward that light with trust and hope to make it through the storm I was in at the time. We all think no one understands. That is a lie. There is One who does and comes to bring that healing that only He can give. I choose to “Be still” trusting His words today.
