the songs are all off key
the words just will not rhyme
the melody means nothing to me
the rhythm is not keeping time
the comfort just isn't there
the grief overshadows all
the spirit cries in despair
the clock slows down to a crawl
the span of my grief is immense
the heart is engulfed in gloom
the pain in my soul is intense
the song of my soul out of tune
At times my grief is so overpowering I cannot even pray. My soul hurts from depths
that I cannot even fathom. These are the times that I turn to the scriptures and let
my soul lift my prayers to the Father in ways that I cannot. My favorite scriptures
for these hurtful times are found in Romans, Chapter 8. My prayer is that they may
be a comfort to you as well. ~
The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for,
but the Sprit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit
intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but
gave him up for us all -
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or
persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither
the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, not anything
else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in
Christ Jesus our Lord.
