Even in the heart of depression, Lord, you are faithful. You are there, running to me with open arms.
RUNNING. TO. ME.
Chasing me down. Holding me up and cupping my face in Your hands saying, “Daughter, I will never leave you. I will never forget you. You are ever on My mind and always in My heart. I can’t stop thinking about you. I know it hurts. Believe Me, no one understands sorrow and loss like I do. Let Me hold you and encourage you with My words, My love and My Unshakeable Joy.”
Jesus, You do not distance Yourself though my heart is wandering
You move in closer than my breath when I regard Your promises
Closer than my thoughts when I saturate this sadness with Your Word
More present than my own heartbeat when I stay fixed on You
Lord Jesus, You are Good.
You are strong when I am weak.
Expanse of Sky to my dust
Rage of Ocean to my lone pebble on the shore…
In the midst of sadness
