I have been on a spiritual journey all of my life. This is a small slice of the growth, joy and pain God has allowed me to have - always reminding me I am still His.

I see your hand in it now
though I have struggled with the necessity
of putting us through this pain
I am beginning to understand
this is all part of your bigger plan
 
I saw you standing next to me
when my heart was consumed in flames
when the anguish was so great
and my faith was so small
 
when I thought the world had ended
you didn't hold me - you let me be
placed your hand on my back
reassuring me you were
aware of my agony
 
you were with me through my shame
kneeling beside me
as love and anger battled within
as I begged for forgiveness
a way out of this pain
you sat beside me
and held my hand
 
now I can feel you holding onto to me
close against your chest
my tears buried forever
in the folds of your garment
 
you are putting me down again
asking me to walk alongside you  
hand in hand with you once more
I wait as you fulfil your promises
