You Lift My Eyes

A Prayer, A Poem for the Toughest of Moments

You Lift My Eyes

Lord, at times life can be so hard

I wonder how I will continue on

Unable to see beyond the trial, the problem

I am defeated, confused, stressed

Coming to my end, no better off then

When I first began.

Hopelessness starts to settle in

My face drops to the ground

Then suddenly in my deepest despair

I feel a gentle touch.

Your hand reaches down from Heaven

You lift my eyes to the sky

To yourself, the Creator of all things

You shine your light in my heart

You give me courage to carry on

You remind me just who YOU are

My provider, my protector, my soul’s caretaker

You remind me that you are my Father,

My Heavenly Father, there is nothing that

Cannot be handled together.

“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed to hungry, whether living in plenty or want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13

Sincerely with Hugs,
