Because of Jesus (a poem of praise)

My heart is torn, broken inside me, I cannot find the pieces
My mind is like a whirlwind, thoughts viciously tossed around
My days have lost their color, all I see is grey
My nights might as well be my days, cold, dark and lonely
Yesterday provides no comfort, tomorrow seems hopeless
Yes, the storm is here and I am caught in it
All seems lost or so in my frailty and despair I conclude.

But tis not! For the Lord is still God!
The Almighty is still my Savior!
Jesus still sits at the right hand of the Father!
He still loves me, my Good Shepherd cares for me
He neither slumbers nor sleeps and knows me by name
Oh my Savior, my Rock, hold on to me
Let not the storm wash me away and take me down to the pit

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor 12:9)
Says the Lord my Savior. Yes Lord, surely, your grace is sufficient.
Strengthen your servant with your right hand O Lord.
“I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalm 27:13-14)
Yes Lord, though I am weary, tired and have no strength of my own, I will wait on You.
“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”. (Matt 28:20)

Because of Jesus, it is well with my soul.
Because of Jesus, I have hope.
Because of Jesus, I have faith.
Because of Jesus, I have strength.
Because of Jesus, I have love.
All because of Jesus, because He loves me.
