Broken

 

In the breaking

I abandon all

And shift the focus up

And cry a while

And moan and groan

For things put in my cup.

And friends can’t help

They stay away

The suffering creeps them out

“What’s wrong with him

Just get a grip.”

I hear the demons shout.

And prayer is tried

It hits the roof

And comes right

Back, it seems.

He’s elsewhere, yes

God does not hear.

While Satan smirks and schemes.

It’s third time down

The waters rise

I’m drowning in this mess.

But looking up

No other choice

A hint of soon redress.

I hear Him now

In tones of love

Just softly at the first.

Yes, He is near

And rescue comes.

I hunger and I thirst

For more that’s right

And clean and kind.

I’m learning of His heart!

The suffering brought

New ears to hear

And thrilling days now start.

 

Psalm 34:

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

    The man depicted here in the chair head-bowed an almost perfect view of a Saviour if not for the wood between him and being face down on the ground propped up from total collapse. Such is HIS GRACE/CROSS!
