Hope Rains

God's glory on display. Unknown source

God’s glory on display. Unknown source

My hope keeps unraveling.
Disappointments keep stealing my joy.
Nightmares keep chasing away sweet dreams.

My strength keeps fading.
Turmoil keeps wrecking my peace.
Struggles keep sabotaging any gains.

My efforts keep failing.
Pride keeps thwarting God’s plans.
Rebellion keeps refusing any change.

Yet, Your Word keeps prevailing.
Truth keeps lifting my head.
Mercy keeps cleansing away all shame.

Your glory keeps revealing.
Majesty keeps opening my eyes.
Creation keeps shouting out Your name.

Your love keeps renewing.
Grace keeps steadying my mind.
Hope keeps pouring down again like rain.

“But Thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory and the lifter of mine head.”
Psalm 3:3

Footnote: this poem was written during a period of immense emotional pain in as I watched someone I love deeply nearly destroy his life. God got me through and continues to work powerfully in my life and his. He surely is the lifter of my head. One day, He has promised an outcome for my loved one that will match the beauty of the photo above. “He is faithful that promised! Hebrews 10:23

    Sue, this is beautiful! Just now reading it. I’m busy trying to get my latest book through final edits and ready for submission for publication, so I’ve not been doing much else other than editing. But I love your writing and needed this today. Thanks!
