My Rock for This Age

Updated on October 27, 2012

Fragile. Battered. Broken.

Bruised beyond repair?

Pushed so hard I am about to break.

Death would be a welcome respite

Instead of staying in this dirty place full of strife.

Foul, I to the fountain fly.

Wash me, Savior, or I die.

Against the evil, on my own

I cannot stand

Save for the strength of the precious Great I am.

He takes my steps

Before I take my steps.

Beyond the struggle

I shall behold His face in righteousness.

      Teaches, Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate your comments. It is very comforting to know that everything we go through, He has already been there first.

      Pamelia, I am so sorry for your struggle with pain. It wears a person down mentally to constantly be in physical pain. The Lord does sustain when we think we cannot go forward. Thanks so much for reading and commenting.

      Thank you for writing this poem. I have had pain as constant companion for the last 10 years, and if it weren't for my faith and knowledge of the Lord I would not be here today. Thank you, Pamlia Wall
