Lord Be There

Updated on November 17, 2012


My heartaches are always hidden

Beneath smiles and laughter

But there are times

When I cannot go on


It is at these times

That I look toward the skies

And search from a sign

From you Lord


For I have found that through my faith

All I have to do is to reach out

And say a prayer

And my life’s burdens are lifted


It is then that I go walking

Along nature’s paths

And see what wonders

The Lord offers me


It is at these times

That my life seems so light

That I can smile

And enjoy everything that surrounds me


On bright sunny days

When wonderful clouds drift along

I wish I could be a bird

To soar up in the sky closer to my Lord


In my dreams I’ve tried to climb mountains

Which seem to reach up to the very heavens

Just so I could feel

That my songs of praise can be heard far and wide


The colors of a rainbow

Never look so bright

As when the rain has stopped

And the sun’s rays appear on a Sunday morning


There are never better mornings

Than the ones which begin with a Bible passage

And a morning prayer

Knowing you are near my Lord


So Lord thank you for being there

When the skies are gray

When my heart is heavy

And by burdens seem too great


You are my saving grace

And Lord I wish to walk hand in hand with you

Till my days are done

And until I can stand before you to say thank you

      I am moved much by this wonderful prayer of thankfullness. I know that a passed friend Dusty who we all knew as 50 Caliber here at the Hubs is saying those very words before his God and God is smiling back and saying thank you for believeing in me. My son you are home. Thank you Gyspy for these inspiring words it makes me want to rethink my beliefs. Peace and blessings I send to you this blessed morn.

      Rasma - Really a beautiful poem that you wrote as a prayer to the one above. We all need to realize what's been provided from time to time. There are days that's a difficult thing to do. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, thank you dear Lord, as You are there in times of joy and times of deep sorrow, and we do just need to look up and call upon his name.

      This is a beautiful poem to glorify and praise our Lord for all He has given us, and I am so grateful to walk hand in hand with Him until I get to see His sweet face for eternity.

      Thank you Gypsy for such a lovely prayer, which I need this day.

      Well done , you couldn't have written it any better. Yeah many times when things seems good we forget to pray and keep close to the master,

      When real pressure hits we know there's no other friend like JESUS so we run to him for comfort and care.

      God bless you

      ~~~Shalom and peace be unto you~~~

      Hi Rasma

      So Lord thank you for being there

      When the skies are gray

      When my heart is heavy

      And my burdens seem to great

      He is always with us to lighten our heavy heart and to make our grey skies blue.

      a rainbow says so much, i believe, Rasma...it's the distinction between light and dark, happy and sad, good and bad...

      it's representative of the beauty that could be in the world - if we all just recognized and appreciated it a little more..

      beautiful as always, dear..

      A beautiful, positive prayer. A rainbow - sign of God's promise. He always answers our prayers, not always in the way we want, but in the way that is best for us. What a lot we have to thank Him for!
