He Spoke To Me In My Grief

Weakened from the sorrow and the pain,
I sat down and asked, Lord, why must I go through this again?
My smile disappears,
And sadness oversteers.

This is what I ask,
because I don’t want to wear a mask,
Don’t you know the pain of losing a love one is driving me insane,
Why did you allow this to happen? Or who should I blame?

My heart pounded in a hollow,
till my head hurt and I buried it in my pillow, smothering myself with hot flashes of tears,
Then the still small voice whispered, am here my child to take away your fears.

He said, look up, my child the Saviour is here,
When you have a burden too great to bear,
Turn to me, I will always be there,
I have not forsaken you, I am always near.

His face sparkled with a twinkle in his eye,
It shone as bright as the stars in the sky.
His blonde hair dances with mottled golden rays,
And on his face, glows a smile that gently says,

My powerful grace can transform your broken heart,
Renew your mind and give you a brand new start.
To you my boundless love is like a mystery,
My faithfulness remains steadfast throughout history…

Fear not the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
My faithfulness will never leave you in dismay,
My love has no limits –my love is without beginning or end,
Most important you are my child surely on me you can always depend.

Inspired by an experience I had as I grieve the loss of a dear loved one who was killed a few days away. It feels so surreal. Lord in my helplessness I simply look up to you for strength to make it through this great loss.

As always thank you for reading. I am truly grateful that you stopped by. Feel free to like, share, leave your thought or reblog. Until we meet again in this space…much love and blessings.♥♥♥

I am Fay Ann, and it is pretty simple. I am a firm believer in God and a Christian blogger who loves writing. My mission is to encourage others to continue living for Christ and remain faithful, focus and fervent. I know God loves me and he also loves you because you are His child; and his nature is to love His children. I am here to declare God’s praises to those who don’t know him so they can find his marvellous light and leave their world of darkness. It is also my desire to become a channel of inspiration and hope to other people especially women who are struggling. I also have the passion to inspire young people to live their life with a purpose for the Lord. I have learned that what milk is to a baby’s body, the word of God is to the soul. It is the food that fuels healthy spiritual growth and just like your mother used to tell you, if you want to grow you need to eat. I feel strongly that these daily reminders of God’s word and presence in our lives is key to maintaining a Godly perspective as we begin each day; and pray that you will be inspired and blessed by the daily devotionals and are passing them along to family and friends. My favourite activities include reading, writing and spending time with great friends and family. I love to share the best thing in my life, the gospel. Let’s be stronger together. You can subscribe below to receive free grace-filled devotionals for your encouragement. God Bless you richly. Shalom.

  1. Faye Ann, thank you for writing and sharing this beautiful poem! It spoke to me and reminded me again of Psalm 91. God continues to show me that He is there and He used you to speak through. Keep being faithful!

    1. Bless your heart. I give God thanks that this spoke to your heart.

      The pain am feeling is real, like the ground am standing on but am grateful for the gentle reminder that God is with me and is mindful of what am going through. Only God knows, He alone knows my pain but he is my strength

  2. Confiding in God is easier when we do it often in good times as well as bad. Losing someone is hard when it’s unexpected and violent. God grieved too as He had for His own Son. The Hope from the Holy Spirit will overcome the grief, but not the memory. I always remind myself that no one is lost if we know where they are. Helping others is also a comfort in these times. You’re doing just that with this post.

    I will pray for you, Fay Ann Swearing, now that I have your name.

  3. Romans 8:28
    “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
    ~All things, even the tragic and the inexplicable . . .
    Prayers going up for you dear.
