He’ll Never Let You Go

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

Darkness disappears

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.

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful and spirited young children, living in Australia. Unashamedly, I am a follower of Christ; He is my daily hope and inspiration. I enjoy dabbling in a range of hobbies ! These include (but aren't limited to) gardening, cooking, making cards, playing piano, singing, writing letters, journalling and walking in nature/ identifying animal species. I find it hard to make time for myself but I'm learning that life is too short and sometimes things must be scheduled in or the days slip away without much change. Family and friends are very important to me and I am happiest when I live my life in community.
