Lonely Writer’s Song

 God has always shared His grace to me through others, and this morning was one of those times of sharing.
 As I finished my daily scripture  readings, I came across this heartfelt poem from a young Catholic mother. The words she wrote reminded me that the Lord alone is my comfort and my rock. He is all I will ever need.

“When my spirit is failing within me,
still, Lord, you know my paths.” ~ Psalm 142:4

The middle of the day
is dead of night to me,
the evening even more;

But Lord, you know my heart,
my mind, my soul; you are near me
upon this desolate shore.

When everything is darkness,
when everyone has fled
and I am left alone,

You, Lord, are my comfort,
the rock
upon which I build my home.

And though you seem to hide,
to forget,
to care not where I go,

Each morning I awake,
I remember,
it is you whom I should love more.

For it is you who brings the morning,
brings the sun
and wakes my soul,

You who lifts my spirit,
calms my mind,
and makes me whole.
