10. In The Midst Of The Storm, He Is There

by Donna Perry


"Here I sit, water all around
No help in site
The cries of the hurting abound

All I can see, for miles on end
Is destruction, devastation
Around every corner and bend

I just can't believe it, my mind has gone blank,
How could this happen?
The entire city has sank!

What did I do to deserve such a fate?
To be left out in the cold
To be left in such a state?

I've lost everything, all of it, not a penny to my name
And I sit here alone, and wonder
'Is this just a game?'

How could my Father in Heaven above,
Leave me here in this agony
Where is His love?

My body is limp, my head to the floor
I've lost all hope
I can't handle much more...

What is that over there in the corner I see
A glimmer of light
Shining right next to me

It's pointing at something, a piece of wood, maybe a book
Floating over in the corner
I think I'll go take a look...

It's wet, and heavy, a little torn on the cover
but it appears to be the Bible
Given to me by my Mother...

I'll open it up and see what I find
God will you please tell me
Why I have been left behind?

Am I really alone, left destitute in this place?
Where is Your help?
Where is Your Grace?

"My child, My child, put your hand in Mine
Do you trust Me sweet child
To turn the water into wine?

"I love you so much, I want you to know
That when it seems hopeless
My care for you I'll show

"But you have to trust Me, give your life entirely to Me
Let Me be your Provider
Protector, and Healer, I'll be...

"The things of this earth will not go with you when you die
Live your life for the treasures
That will last all eternity by

"Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness and Gentleness
Let these be your clothing
In the midst of this mess

"As you draw near to Me, I'll draw near to you
To conform you to My image
That My love will shine through

"You're not abandoned, sweet child, I'm here at all times
Will you trust Me in this
Let Me be your guide?

"I know what you need, where you are to go
Just Trust Me my child
Until in My presence, you go...

"I love you so much, that I gave My life for you
To show you the depth
Of My heart's concern for you...

"When I was on the cross, taking on your sins
I felt alone and abandoned
Forsaken by Him

"But I rose from the dead, victorious and alive
And so will you my child
With Me by your side....

Trust Me, My child, Trust Me..."
