When I reach down deep and nothing reaches back.
When my heart beats hard and I have no strength.
When no one knows the darkness inside.
When something whispers, “Run!” but I stay.
When hope is a mirage.
When love is a word without substance.
When all that is familiar seems foreign. When making sense of life is senseless.
I will hold on.
I will take stock.
I will recall.
I will know.
I will receive.
I will connect.
I will pray.
I will be loved.
I will love.
I will last.
I will praise.
I will keep reaching.
I will persevere.
I will be hopeful.
I will follow.
I will lead.
I will keep on.
Because when I say I will, GOD WILL.
(Psa. 116:2) Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath.
(Psa. 138:3) As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength.
(Hebrews 13:20-21) Now may the God of peace—who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood—may he equip you with all you need for doing his will.
May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.
