Here in this moment
Here in this moment I just don’t have the strength to believe that there is good planned through all the pain and struggle. I don’t, but You do. Your presence becomes my strength. Your Word becomes my power. Here in this moment when I can’t see, when the night is closing in, You are my lifeline. I have moments when it’s hard to breathe. Into this moments You come and heal. You remind me that it’s Your breath in my lungs. You breathe hope for a new day into my heart. I don’t have to walk this way alone.
There is a breaking. A breaking before the dawn. A breaking before the breakthrough. I know I will come through this stronger because You are working in me and around me. You are turning the storm for my good and for Your glory. Is it true that the night is always darkest just before the dawn? I don’t know, but it feels like it. I hear You whisper into the depths of my sighing. I hear You whisper into the night and I see as the first rays of light appear. Abba, keep whispering! Your voice is creating light. Your voice is so precious to me. So powerfully at work. How would I live without You?
In the stillness, I know You. In the stillness, I hear You. As I’m walking through the lowest valley, I know that You are here with me. Your Word comforts me and gives me strength for the next step. Somehow You have provided for me a peace that is beyond my understanding. In all this pain, I can say that I have never been overwhelmed or shaken because Your peace has been greater. You have gone before me and given me grace upon grace. And I have been blessed despite the suffering.
Lord, my Lord, I have cried to You from the depths. I have lifted my heart to You in anguish. I have come before You broken and in tears. I have questioned, I have felt defeated. You simply lifted me up into Your arms and held me tight. I never heard You say a Word and still somehow heavenly goodness echoes over and over inside my heart. All I know is that I am so loved. So loved. Thank You for letting me rest inside Your arms.
In quietness and in trust is my strength. My soul finds rest in You alone. Joy and gladness will overtake me, and sorrow and sighing will flee, for You- You are the One who comforts me!
Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have! You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way. Your authority is my strength and my peace. The comfort of your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.” Psalms 23:4 TPT
