I’ve felt its slimy hand on my heart for weeks
Knowing it isn’t of God
But unable to shake the feeling
That I’m all alone.
Sudden, quick, terrifying.
It had me in its grip before I knew it.
It backed me into a corner, blinded me from the truth,
And like a scared animal, I lashed out at everyone who came close.
Of knowing I had hurt the ones I love.
Had failed the One Who loves me.
Of feeling so very alone.
Of falling prey to the enemy’s trick.
My two favorite words: but God.
But God met me in my fear,
Released me from my pain,
Forgave my sin, made me whole again!
It feels so redundant
But “thank You” is my heart’s refrain!
I can’t help but think it, feel it, breathe it
Over and over again!
The blessings You’ve poured out are so many
My heart can hardly express
The fullness of joy,
The overwhelming sense of thankfulness!
How great You are Lord!
How amazing are the works of Your hand!
Thank You for loving me
And for fighting for me when I just stand.
