Never Forsaken

Oh God, why have You
forsaken me today
My dearest child,
I know it feels that way

But I have never left
your grieving side
Turn your face, your heart
in Me abide

I am comfort
for your grief
I am the source
of your relief

It’s the evil one’s
lies of despair
That make you feel
as if I don’t care

But always remember
I died for you
Our precious bond
to forever renew

I will not let
your soul be shaken
Never, oh never
will you be forsaken

    This is so so beautiful,it is true that God never leaves it’s just the human blinded by despair that he can’t see it.

  11. Bodhirose says:

    Even as you ask, why have I been forsaken, you know within yourself the answer and it comes forth. Well done, Linda.

  12. This is such a timely prayer… You do them so well Linda…and you faith is showing.

    • Thanks. I’m really enjoying the daily focus on God for this season of Lent and writing something every day. They may not all be great, but the discipline brings forth some good ones like this.

    Perfect. Especially that middle section:

    “Turn your face, your heart
    in Me abide

    I am comfort
    for your grief
    I am the source
    of your relief

    It’s the evil one’s
    lies of despair
    That make you feel
    as if I don’t care”

    What a wonderful poem for Lent, Linda. Indeed He never leaves our side, even if sometimes he is not visible.

    Our faith is often tested at difficult moments in our lives.
    Well penned.

    Lots of love,

    There are those moments when faith is tested and all seems so dark. Without them, would we recognize light?
