It’s hard again
And the loneliness
Abrades the skin and soul
I am yours
With assurance I am whole
But not today
The saints seem
All so far away
And claiming victory
Even in the smallest things
While I doubt much
And fear the strokes
That chastening brings.
But Father this is just
Denial of your love
You feel and touch
And timely send your
Rescue from above
Mine to wait and watch
And speak those words
Of timeless writ
Til I see the joy of it.

Wow I felt this way after reading Hebrews also. My pastor took me for coffee and told me this was quite common. This was last Sunday and since then I can't count the number of confirmations I've had. In this last week I have felt closer to God than I have in the 16 years I've believed. Thanks for sharing this

Sometimes the light has to come down through much foliage, and we are almost convinced that things are dark. Chastening is a sobering word. But fathers engage in this lovingly. Let the key words in your victory plan be "Father, loving, omnipotent, wise, constant, fruitful". If He is all these things then you as His child will never be a castaway. Thanks for the uplifting comment Friend.
You might want to google search the site histouchalone (all one word). It is an uplift compendium on our all capable Saviour-Shepherd...Doug

His Strange Yes

What does it look like?
God’s “Yes”
When your fears hurl
Up those knee-jerk petitions.
And reproach
Takes on some novel editions.
When the wicked
Frustrate blessing well-earned
And your good ill-taken
Your witness spurned.
It looks like
He is busy elsewhere
Your family’s needs
Beyond His care.
But take a moment
Try to see
The others searching you
Curiously.
They will not speak
Too proud to ever
Let their troubles leak.
But you have this grit
And hurl up thanksgiving
In spite of it.
At end of themselves
They know you have
The reach to go beyond
That slough of despond
And see the feast
Yes even for the least
Or great ones
Tired of the pace
Who whisper they would
Gladly take your place.
God’s answers shine
And go beyond
This place and time.
He never leaves your side
He puts the “starch” of Christ inside
And makes you see
These tests as small
Christ’s fellowship worth it all.
His blood was spent
And you have precious inkling
What it meant.
