Am I Listening?

poppies mountain italy

I cannot explain
This emptiness, this pain
I long for Your presence
But feel it has left me

I feel so hollow
So alone, by myself
I’m hurting, dear Lord
And Your Word seems so distant

I read; but nothing is planted
I see words; but they allude me
I hear hymns; but they are for others
I need You, dear Lord, forgive me

Into tribulation we fall
Bringeth patience and
Experience that we might hope
Oh the love of God
To us You have given
Freely, freely
The gift of all time
Lord help me
To stop handing it
Handing it back to Thee
Oh! May my heart be joyful
And graciously accept grace
You have given Your life
Manifest in me

You have promised never to leave me
You have promised to always protect me
Rain down Your healing, Lord
Wash me afresh
I know I can never be clean enough
Looking through my eyes
Your eyes are pure, and Your light is golden
It shines through my heart
In which Your dear Son is hidden
It’s not me, I can do nothing
To enter Your Kingdom
I surrender my all, to You, my all is given

For A Dear One Hurting (Poem and/or Song Lyrics)

For a Dear One Hurting
There is someone who loves you
Yes someone that I know
Who loves and protects you
Wherever you may go

Because somebody is praying
Who loves you so dearly
Please trust even though
Each day your heart is teary

Life is like a precious flower
Where joy is hidden when it’s dark
For deep within the petals
Beauty lies dormant when it’s dark

Oh! Allow the warming of the Son
To open up your heart
And like that flower closed so tightly
Unfold so beautifully, each part

For when the warmth of the Saviour
Enters very deep within, be healed
Revealed is softness, pureness, completeness
And the outside forms the shield

Yes the blemishes of life
Still exist to our unopened eye
But when opened to the glorious Light
Are hidden from on high

Because our Saviour
All He sees, from heavenly places above
Is perfection and unparallel beauty
In the heart filled with Jesus’ love

So take your thoughts, your tears, your plans
From off what is happening to you
And trust the Lord who knows all
To reveal what He has planned for you
