Kind Words (Sisterhood)

A tear rolled down the mounds crested in sadness

Brows creased with disappointment

Shoulders hunched in self-chastisement

Hidden in view in the midst of the forest, inwardly crying

Hidden to be found in the midst of a field, inside dying

There in full view, yet invisible, hoping

To be seen, visible, worth noting

Could have fled, slipped away quickly

There, there, there, sat silently

A warm heart struck with kindness

A word of encouragement to be harnessed

A wisdom shared from words holy

A prayer sent to above, holy

Laughter, friendship, faith, and sisterhood

With kind words was new hope instilled

With gratefulness was the receiver filled

Troubled (O Faithful Father)

O faithful Father of mine

Can You see this child thine

In the mud of a worrying heart

Keeping me far away, apart

 

O faithful Father, my heart

Is troubled with so much

My mind is clouded

My eyes shrouded

 

I know Your love is there for me

Yet I cannot seem to find peace

The thoughts of uncertainty filling my being

Making me restless and reeling

 

O faithful Father

Help me, my Lord

To bring peace to my weary mind

To trust Your faithfulness with my wary heart

 

You are my comfort

Yet I cannot find it

Not for the lack of Your promises

But the lack of my own faith

 

O Lord, my great Father

I must set my eyes to You

Trust that it is You, dear Jesus, not I

Who makes all things happen

 

For no thing is too small, dear Jesus

For no thing is too great, my Lord

For You are the Almighty and All Knowing

I lay my life at Your feet
