At Times

Updated on August 25, 2010

At times the joy does come through
At times I long for you to make me new

My heart aches at times so bad
Why do I always seem sad

The joy is in you Lord,
Help me take this day and search for you

Guide me always inside my heart
Tell me Jesus, you won't depart.

      sweet sister. Humbling! Yes some days are very difficult storms we endure and we know we are never alone. When we get through to the other side with Jesus we know we were allowed to go through the pain for His good and Glory. Our faith is tested and strengthened. God know what He does. We must put on the whole armor and keep going. The gates of hell shall not prevail. Hugs Galore. Your sister Skye. I love ya girl.

      Beautifully put together! It makes me think of Hebrews 13:5.
