The emptiness that the world leaves us is sometimes unbearable.
We try to be strong and to make it through intact, but the wounds, the scars, the brokenness that gets left behind is just a constant reminder of how weak we truly are.
God, we want to believe this world will be easy, or at the very least manageable.
We pray that the joy we feel in you would help us overcome all things.
But sometimes it is just too much. Too much loss, too much pain, too much loneliness.
Too much for me to carry, too much for me to understand, too much for me to want to take upon myself.
God, YOU DO IT. Do it all, carry it all, understand it all for me, TAKE IT ALL.
Bind these wounds that they may heal. Remove my scars. Stop the bleeding in my aching heart.
Lord, cover me, heal me, LOVE ME.
Catch my tears in your open hands, stop the shaking in my restless spirit, speak quietly to me.
Let me feel you, draw close to me as I seek after You, cover me in your strength, complete yourself in my weakness.
Let me be a light shining in the darkness. Let that light burn brighter in the troubled times.
At the end, when looking back on my life, allow me to be able to look back in pride that I was able to handle myself with grace and dignity. God allow me to see only You when I look back on myself.
We praise you for the storm, we love you for the trying times, we seek you in the darkness.
Help us through, WE FOLLOW YOU COME WHAT MAY.
