What do you do
When you don’t know where you belong?
When your dreams get a little hazy?
When you feel you’ve lost your way?
Hope is suppressed, as you fight doubts and fears
Your eyes fill with tears, and your heart screams for help
What do you say
When you see no point in trying?
When the task overwhelms your head?
When tomorrow is a painful thought?
How can you stand, when you feel lost and alone?
When you’re floating in depression
When the walls are caving in?
Trapped in a mindset
As you reach for the light
Your heart still in chains
Too weak to cry, “Help!”
You fall down in the dust
Then a firm hand releases you
Lifts you out
He gives you joy
And you see
Things you’ve never seen
You have a hope that won’t leave –
He’ll never let you go…

I wrote this poem almost ten years ago and now it seems appropriate to share it once more. No matter how difficult the circumstances, I find, time and time again, that there is always a way to cope when I lean on my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I can feel trapped, lonely or even at breaking point and then I humble myself to ask for His help. He gives me the peace I need to move forward and be constructive in my thought patterns, enabling positive action to occur.
