Lord, You love me very deeply
each day showing me the height,
the depth, and the vastness of
your amazing love through the
blessings I receive from You

Last night within the deepest
parts of my heart, where anguish
and agony wanted to have their
way with me, when loneliness
tried to become my only friend

Your word brought about their
demise casting them all away
into a dark pit while soothing
the heartache I felt inside with
your peace

Lifting my heart into your hands
Causing each unwanted emotion to
meet their ending before the new
morning sun found its way into my
Dorm window

Reminding me there will never be
a lasting moment where I will be
without your spirit accompanying
my mind into soft dreams of Your
eternal love which has lovingly
held me from the first moment of
my life’s beginnings

For you are the radiant smile who
lights the dark places of my heart
when those times come where I find
myself alone allowing me to see the
sweet reflection of your heavenly

I am truly reminded how blessed my
life really is, when I can call out
to You silently from within my soul
Knowing you will hear my prayers,
and cries wiping my tears away showing
me the blessing of your genuine love

And I find there is never a place called
far away because with you Lord the promise
of closeness is ever real and your spirit’s
nearness in my life knows a consistent
and endless… sweet forever.

Isaiah 26 3:4
You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord God is an
everlasting rock.

Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
