Desperation marked my every thought.
I believed that my God had deserted me,
Everything was stripped away,
Only my naked soul was left,
I thought God stopped listening to my prayers,
I believed my sin was too great,
To be forgiven and restored.
Within my heart I cried out to You,
“Take back what is yours God”,
Life without God was terrifying,
I spent my days cowering,
Scared of my own shadow.
God’s restoration took me to my fears,
Healing showed me victory,
Each shadow felt the white light of his love,
God said, “You are mine, mine mine.”
No part of me was left unexamined,
He brought it all back to his heart.
Praise’s source sheds light on shadow,
From the shadow I learned about Grace,
My deepest valleys were gifts of understanding,
They are leading me to the mountaintops,
God is my trusted guide,
His perspective the gift to those who love him.
