Since my teen years, I have been a huge fan of poetry. I have written many poems over the years, but one particular poem is my favorite.
It was inspired by a period of time when I was dealing with the haunting memories of divorce while at the same time realizing just how far I had come in the process of healing my heart and soul.
Although previously published, I wanted to share it on this new blog as well. It’s my prayer that it will fall on fresh ears and bring healing to other hurting hearts.
I sat alone with the Lord My heart bleeding inside "How do I begin again?" To my Father I cried. "Put your hand in mine I'll walk with you each step Put your trust in me For I know just how to help". So I put my hand in His He helped me to my feet First one step, then two The hills became so steep. Then through the valleys we went So far away from the sun "Don't let go of my hand For your journey has just begun". Though the storms raged And the nights seemed so long I knew that my Lord Would never lead me wrong At the end of the journey On the mountaintop we stood I was thankful for the experience For at last I understood I must go through the valleys And feel the rain on my face It's then I grow close to Him And understand the gift of grace Lynn F.
