By Still Waters I

Dear Reader,

The below poem, “All I Wanted To Do”, was written during a time of my life where there was great testing.  The Lord gave me these words during a concert as I listened to a chorale group sing “Silent Night”.  May this poem be a blessing to those of you who are currently experiencing trials this time of year.  Love in Christ, Mary

 

All I Wanted To Do

A Light on the plateau
It was bright, calm, and there
It rested
But where did my strength go?
Why has my tolerance gone?
Where is my joy?
Have I left my Strength?
Have I sought my Strength?
I have pulled into myself
But I know
He is still there
What is it that I need?
What?
What?
Then I knew

He held me up
He held me up
The Strength I had
Was from Him

The light began to dawn
The light began to brighten the
Shadows along the way
The stress had been great
For months upon months
Questions
Prayers
New directions
Paths unknown
The Lord held me up
I cried to Him often
He often heard my voice
And cries

He held me up
He held me up
The Strength I had
Was from Him

And then I knew
All I wanted
Was to bow down
And Worship
The Baby Jesus
Silent Night
Holy Night
All is Calm
All is Bright
