A word for the discouraged

Through out time God has watched
And listened to his children as they
Came to him with tear streaked faces
And questioning eyes.

He has watched sadly and sometimes
Quietly as they left his presence
With heavy hearts and shoulders slumped
Thinking he hadn’t heard their petitions.

He has closed his eyes in quiet pain
As yet another whispered why Lord?
Why? Reached his ear.  He’s listened sadly
To the cries of when? Lord when will it all end?

The night has been long and hard.
The enemy has used the covering of darkness
To bring confusion fear, anger and depression.

In the darkness it seems as if you have nothing.
In the darkness it is easy to doubt God.
It is human to doubt in the darkness because
With the physical eyes you can’t see any way out.

But God has seen, He’s listened and now
He’s saying to someone, Morning has broken.
He is saying I am with you even in the darkness.
When all seem bleak I am here.  I will never leave you

Nor forsake you.  Trust in me my child.  Morning has broken.

Trusting Him,

It's Gonna Be Alright

I jumped in my car and turned on the engine.  It felt as if the weight of the world was on my shoulders.  My eyes were heavy from tears that were so close I could feel them about to fall.  I had just gotten some distressing news and I wasn’t sure what it meant and how to process it.
Questions weighed heavily on my mind as I mentally prepared myself for the period of tears and questions I was about to enter with my heavenly father. However before the first tear could trickle down my cheek I heard the lyrics to a song coming across my car radio...
I'm at Laced With Grace Today.  I'd love it if you'd stop by and read the rest of my post It's Gonna Be Alright

Trusting Him,
