A Poem of Hardship and Hope

With no reason to hope and fear rising within
Unable to face this suffering once again
At the end of myself, the end of my rope
I will choose once again in my Jesus to hope

That He will soon restore me
Bring new life from despair
That He will yet heal me
And comfort my fears

I offer my sorrow
And I take up your praise
I’ll choose joy in this valley
Your name high I will raise

For Your promises are faithful
Your love, it is sure,
Your presence is with me
Your mercy endures

I will not fear the darkness
Another night filled with strife
I will dwell in your goodness
Wait for the dawn of your light

Your ways are higher
Your plans, they are great
I do not doubt you will rescue
I will be patient and wait

For you do not abandon
Those that you love
You bring rest to the weary
And help the lowly rise up

Oh dear potter, I trust you
My brokenness, please mend
I offer all I’ve become to you
This trial to you, I rend.
