I Know

by Fashqn1/31/17

I know the frustration you feel
When you slowly sit down to pray
Wondering if you’ll feel My presence
Or find the right words to say

I know the sadness you experience
From the burdens upon your heart
As you kneel to pray again
And wonder just how to start

I know the anguish you go through
When my silence seems to last
When you desperately cling to memories
Of my still, small voice in the past

I know the doubts that plague you
When prayers seem unheard
Or when you just feel a numbness
At times, when you open My word

I know the confusion that happens
When unbelievers prosper anew
And you wonder if I am watching
And if I still care for you

I know the fears that visit
In the darkest hours of the night
How you cry over spiritual turmoil
Feeling far too weak for the fight

I know that problems around the globe
Can leave you scared and perplexed
As the cloud that hangs over your head
Brings the question “what happens next?”

But I also know your heart
The depths no other can see
And I know that you are committed
To continue trusting in Me

I also know your mind
How often each day it turns
To thoughts of Me and My mercies
Parts of My Word you have learned

And I also see the joy you feel
When a song reminds you again
That My Son, Jesus, died for you
And has covered each one of your sins

My child, I see all of this and much more
And as every new day does unfold
I just wanted to simply remind you
I see…I hear…and I know….

    Nice, though some might consider the viewpoint angle hubristic.

    The human condition is sometimes so difficult. Trying to remember God hurts at times and we need reassurance. Thank you again for your help in going forward.
