Battling the darkness

Lately I feel as though I had been sinking, I don’t know where. But rebuilding your life is hard work. I’ve been searching lately for answers not knowing where to turn, but all roads lead to God. Hence this poem to remind myself.




When you are lying flat exhausted
I feel distressed, I muffle a sound
As I call out to the Lord
I call out for help
Deep within the realm of my soul
You listen to my cry for help

You hurl me into decisions
I need to make, the depths
Of my life, the currents of life swirl about me
As the waves of an oceans
Sweep over you, beating at the shore

The times I banished You from my sight
Yet I turned to look for You again
Towards the heavens

The times I feel as though I am drowning
Engulfed by the waters of life, Raging deeper each day
Battling the seaweed, pulling me down

Mountains fading in the distant as I sank down
The oceans barred me from reaching the earth
But You, God have raised me
You bought me out of the darkness

When my life was pulling me away
Now I remember You, and how You have risen me
My prayer is for You.
I clung to the old
But now search for God’s love

I shout God’s praise, I am grateful
From God in my life
My life is with You now God
I vow life is good with the Lord
The Lord granted me Salvation.

  1. As we know Bj it is not God who afflicts us or breaks us as the Scripture below confirms, He always with us in times of trouble and keeps us from being broken by the hardship life brings, all good things come from Him not bad.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.
