Day 15: Heart Tears



HE hears it & HE knows it because HE created it~

Your HEART

That deepest part of you that no one can see,

yet you feel with every beat.

But HE waits

For you & I & everyone else

to

LAMENT.

Oh when that tender spot of your HEART is revealed to the ONE who created it~

is where miracles happen.

LAMENTING~

Inviting GOD into

your pain

your confusion

your frustration

your ________.

And what does GOD do when you invite

HIM into your HEART life~

into the deepest part of you that no one can see

yet you feel with every beat?

“Come & listen, all you who fear GOD; let me tell you what HE has done for me.

I cried out to HIM with my mouth; HIS praise was on my tongue.

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the LORD would not have listened;

but GOD has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer.

Praise be to GOD, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld HIS love from me!”

(Psalm 66:16-20)

Below is one of those moments

from my past

when I LAMENTED to GOD~

Inviting HIM into my REAL LIFE at that moment of time.

HE not only heard me.

HE met me right where I was so that

HE could occupy those places my HEART

that cried out to HIM.

(if reading on phone the poem is formatted, so sorry for the confusion)

“God humbled me in my trials,

to keep me in check~

So pride wouldn't consume me,

yet I felt like such a wreck.

So weary & tired,

my burdens weighed me down~

"My God, my God please help me",

yet He was no where to be found.

Since I couldn't feel His Presence,

as I was leaning on His Son~

Impatience got the best of me,

away from Him I did run.

"Why won't You rescue me?",

where the words I cried out to Him~

So desperate and so weary,

I chose the road to sin.

"If You are Who You say You are,

why won't You come when I call?"~

He responded in a small whisper,

"Because you haven't given Me your all."

"You tell Me that you love Me,

that you will follow Me to the end~

But when circumstances appear out of control,

do I still remain your best friend?"

"You love Me when I say yes,

and when things run according to your plan~

Where were you Joni when I said "no",

you're the one that ran".

"Do you believe that I love you,

that I work for good the minutes of you day

“That My plan for your life is perfect,

but will you allow Me to do it My way?"

"I promise that I'm always with you,

I promise that I'm working on your behalf~

Will you trust Me with your all,

as I lead you down life's path."

“Hold onto my Son's hand,

trusting Me everywhere we go~

Even when the road gets bumpy,

especially when you're confused & just don't know."

"Haven't I always been faithful,

as you look back upon your life~

Turning all bad into good,

exchanging peace for your strife."

"So now it's up to you,

to trust Me in all things~

So I can turn your tears into smiles,

because over you I love to sing.”

Well my eyes were opened up wide,

as My Lord didn't give up on me~

When my faith was being shaken,

because His Plan I couldn't see.

He's always working behind the scenes,

creating the best for me and for you~

He just asks that we trust Him and wait patiently,

while watching expectantly for what He's going to do.

It is easier said than done,

when the darkness clouds out the light~

“As I learned this lesson once again,

but don't give up the fight.

Especially when your day gets foggy,

and you just can't seem to cope~

He is the only answer to all things,

He is your only hope.

REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.

Oh LAMENT
