My Love Prayer ~ It Stayed and WE PRAYED ~ I love you ~ a poem for my husband ~

~ I wrote this for my husband my rock ~

This poem is for my husband, my love, in reference to our health struggles these past few years and in honor of the growth of our faith in continued adversity.

We have so many emotions and feelings whirling around us and still the strength of our faith prevails in a bit of an unrelenting storm. Trials are so amazing in how they bring us together to talk and share and grow in the Word of God. I have to say, it is quite the ride, though, as I am sure you can all relate.

Trials are so amazing in how they bring us together to talk and share and grow in the Word of God. I have to say, it is quite the ride, though, as I am sure you can all relate.

I was driving down a road one night on my way home from a friend’s house. I was enjoying the company of my beautiful daughter. Driving down a back road later in the evening the black top and yellow line intrigued me as it was only lit by the headlights of my car. We rolled along, up a hill then gently down.

It made me, think this is life, up and down the hills, our way lighted by God and still we are not there yet. I look forward to the end of the road when at last over that final Hill. We meet HIM, our Savior.

After that evening, a poem for my sweet husband came to me as I reflected on our riding of the hills together

My Love ~ It Stayed ~ And We Prayed …

I whispered something

Into your ear,

Somehow thinking it

Would disappear,

But it stayed.

Oh how I prayed,

But it stayed.

I tried to close my

Eyes so tight.

Quite ready

To put up a fight.

But it stayed,

Oh, how I prayed,

But it stayed.

Searching your eyes

After I told you.

Wanting my love

To make it untrue.

Slowly waiting

For the words to come.

Somehow hoping

You could make it undone.

But it stayed,

Oh how I prayed,

But it stayed.

Then I saw that look

On your face.

The one that looks

So out of place.

No answer

Could you share with me,

Just the warmth of empathy.

I wanted to yell out

Make it stop!

Take this thing,

That keeps us blocked,

From all the dreams we

Want to share,

And all the feelings of despair,

But they stayed,

Oh, how I prayed,

But they stayed.

At that moment we finally knew.

We had to trust,

And go to you,

So we prayed.

Dear Lord come be with us today,

Help us please to find a way,

To just pray.

To thank you for the things you’ve done,

Letting us know you’re the only one,

Who can save,

So we pray.

Give us strength in our weakness Lord,

Shield us with your mighty sword,

So we pray …

Help us slay tempted thoughts in pain,

Of inpatient words,

That can hurt in vain,

Show us, Grace, as we walk with you

Over the next hill -

Where you wait! ~ Thank you, God,

This was lovely. I empathize with you since both of us have also been through many terrible and life threatening health problems. Yet, here we stand, just as the two of you still stand. Life is a wonder, isn't it?

Thank you Debbie ~

This was a direct heart poem. I have been blessed with a lovely caring husband. As many we have been through some tough physical things and yet God had worked His magic in using our trials to see Gods love even more. Blessing to you and so nice to meet you also.

So beautiful. This reminds of the song "Praise You in this Storm". I think it's by Third Day. You are a gifted writer.
