Jesus, are you there?
I woke up this morning with heaviness in my heart;
I didn’t know what to do or where to start.
So I got down on my knees and bowed my head,
Opened up my mouth and this is what I said…
“Jesus, are you there? Do you hear my cry?
Do you even care? I’m so tired of hurting.
I’m tired of the pain. Jesus, do you know how I feel?
Have you ever felt the same?”
I rose from my knees and rubbed my hands down my spine;
I shook my head and thought, “This is a waste of time.”
I sat back down on my bed; then something came over me.
I said, “Who is this I hear? Who is there?” I heard a voice speak soft and clear…
“My child I hear you and yes I care;
I know of your pain, I know your despair.
For “I gave my back to those who strike me,
And my cheeks to those who pluck out the beard
I did not cover my face from humiliation and spitting.” (Isaiah 50:6)
See, my child? I have been hurt, I have felt pain.
To experience none of this, we’d have nothing to gain.
My Father in Heaven watches over you and your home,
So please my child, know you are never alone.
When times get hard and your way is lost,
I’ll always be there to help you carry your cross.”
I stood up this time with a fresh new start,
Knowing now that where ever I go, I will have Jesus in my heart!
I stretched out my arms and walked out of my room;
No matter what, I know my Lord will return soon!
