On My Knee's O Lord

The Depths of One's Soul - The Authors Heart

I authored this poem when I was going through a challenging time in my life, and I didn't see any ending in sight. I cried out to Jesus, but I truly wasn't ready to hear his answer or to change my ways, so I thought this was my fate because of the choices I made from haste. I always find myself flying at the seat of my pants and I gather I have always been this way.

Oh, yes, my old life before I found Christ Jesus was riddled with earthquakes and thunderstorms that drove me to depths of the sorrows that I write about. Thank God that Jesus saved me in 2012 and the Holy Spirit guides me. But, of course, I don't always listen.

Well, I am much better at listening though sometimes I don't hear. A conundrum everyone comes across, I'm sure. I do try to listen to that still small voice and pray for wisdom and understanding.

My writing technique is to show the storm before Jesus rescues one from such storm. May he guide you to calmness and shelter you and carry you until you can walk again.

I give praise unto thee O, my Lord!

I give praise unto thee O, my Lord!

On My Knees, O My Lord

Pen in hand, her paper is blank, she's lost in her thoughts today
Time ticks by as the clock tick-tocks- she wonders how she lost her way
Why does time stand still when you're at the crossroads, contemplating which way to go?
She looks to skies of the heavens above grasping towards the pillars of hope

Dear God! She cries I can't take this anymore, the whirlwinds in my mind
They drown my soul way too deep through the pendulums swing of time
Oh my God! Hold me in your arms for the depth is too deep to bear
The quiet is loud screaming at me causing unquenching total despair

Troubles seem relentless, there's no way out so, she cries out to the Lord
She drops to her knees searching for relief to help her battle this war
The Lord hears her cries; he's moved by her tears as he wipes them from her eyes
Don't worry my child, I've covered your cost through the darkness you'll find the Light

She can’t fight the sadness that lingers so still with rivers that quake in the sand
Tears poured down her face leaving a trace of yesterday's sorrows of man
Her body shakes as she cries out to God, rescue me from this earthquake
He takes her hand, holds her close as he walks her through the roaring waves

I heard your tears as they stained your face, my love for you will never waver
I never left your side, I carried you through to the other side of forever
I was there when you fell to your knees, your heart I held in my hands
Rest assured no problems too deep, not even the sorrows of man

Just follow my Son throughout your life, for He is the truth and the Light
Keep him close as you're going through the trials of your everyday life
Tribulations may come and go; thunder cracks the light striking from within
The darkness stills the stagnant air with the hangmen's noose of sin

Just trust in the Lord with all your might and he will calm the raging waters
Go to him with all your troubles, and he will see you to the Father
God loves you; you are His child, that He gave his Only Begotten Son to man
That whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but live with God again...

"Let me paint you a picture - a picture with words"

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of writing poetry!
