To The Lost And Alone – Romans 8:26

To The Lost And Alone – Romans 8:26
Part (4 of 4)

Am I the only one?
To feel this lost and alone
To feel like there’s no one
To whom I can turn
Surely not in the world of hurt
So many more will feel this pain
If you do
If you are
So lost and alone
And you’ve found your way to these words
That I write unto myself
Well you should know
We have a spirit within
To help us through
And a God that surrounds
Who loves us so
No matter where you are
Or in the depths you feel
There’s a Father
Waiting on a voice
To simply say
“Save me Lord”
And this I know
And I say to you
You will be saved

Thoughts Of The Lost And Alone – Proverbs 2:8

Thoughts Of The Lost And Alone – Proverbs 2:8
(Part 3 of 4)

Even though the way was dark
And here I felt so lost and alone
I hear the words He says to me
I feel His arm surrounding me
To guard a heart that suffers so
From the disease of lost and alone
I’ve shown my faith in darker days
I’ve held to Him through stronger waves
And He’s the One that always protect my way
It’s up to me to open these eyes and see
That even when I feel so lost and alone
He’s the One that is ever at my side

Beyond The Lost And Alone – Psalm 16:7-8

Beyond The Lost And Alone – Psalm 16:7-8
(Part 2 of 4)

And all was lost
Still I found the words
To call His name
In my Christ
I was saved
So praise is here
Upon these lips
To the One who hears
Who sees me through
To counsel a heart
So lost and alone
Who takes my hand
Who leads me home

Lost And Alone – Jeremiah 17:14

Lost And Alone – Jeremiah 17:14
(Part 1 of 4)

Here I am
Of forty five
I am the lost
Left alone
No dreams
No hopes
Left to hold
Destined for nowhere
Left to be forgotten
By a world
That won’t remember
Just who I was
All that’s left
Is to sleep
To just gather dust
Covered by the sands
Belonging to time
Still between the beats
Of a lost
And lonely heart
I hear the refrain
“Heal me Lord”
I hear the echoing words
“Save me Lord”
When all seemed lost
It’s only these words I find
I’ve said my praise
Sung my worship
Still lost my way
Now all that’s left
Is these words I hear
Heal me Lord
And I will be healed
Save me Lord
And I will be saved

All Gone – Psalm 12:1

All Gone – Psalm 12:1

So many around me
See me as worthless
Still see the one that was lost
And those who see me as something
This darkness I’m holding
Is pushing them all away
It’s just me here
Empty and alone
Oh Lord hear me
Let me know You’re here
And soon will come a time
Where I no longer feel so lost

Psalm 12:1

Psalm 12:1

From Isolation

From Isolation (Psalm 100:5)

In your lonely isolation
Where your heartbeat slowly fades
You feel you can never be loved
And hide from the world around you
Trusting in the artificial
Losing a grip on any hope
I tell you there is someone
His love is unconditional
A love that endures forever
A Father to all generations
Let Him cast his arms around you
And lift the pain from your heart
Open the door to the Father
And never feel alone again

Together Alone

Together Alone (Psalm 90:14)

Am I alone here
Yet I know You’re there
Where has my voice fallen
When tonight I need to call
My friends they stand with me
Yet in my silence they cannot help
They pray for me
I know they long to help
Still I hide this voice deep inside
Lord let us stand together
Let Your unfailing love arise
So when the new dawn comes
We all sing together of Your glory

(Part 4 of 7)

In Times Of Testing

When I think back to where I found myself this time last year and what I feel I’ve gone through during those last twelve months, I know I’ve come a long way.

Having reviewed a lot of my poems that were written in those twelve months, it was quite evident from the words contained within them how I was feeling and where I felt I was.  It seemed I wrote about feeling I was in many different places, each with it’s own feelings of isolation, pain, hopelessness and desperation.

I had a strong feeling this morning that I was being reminded that in all these situations, there was one common denominator that saw me through each of them.  In each situation I prayed for it all to be taken away, yet that never really happened, I had to walk through them all.

There were times when I felt like I was at the foot of the mountain, yet I had no strength left in me to climb, I had nothing left and I cried out for help, take this away, throw it to the ocean.

Other times I felt I was in the fire, every which way I turned I felt the heat burning, there was a feeling of being stuck with nowhere to turn, once more I asked for all this to be taken away.

There were feelings of sinking in the ocean or just drifting, alone, isolated and struggling to breathe as I sank lower and lower, I needed pulling out, just lifting out and putting down somewhere safe.

Then the feeling as though I was just wandering through the desert, dry, dusty, lifeless, nothing, just me alone and all life seemed so far away, but I just couldn’t reach it.

I don’t know where each one of you that read this are or if you feel this way, but this morning I felt a deep sense that God was telling me He heard all my prayers for all of these things to be taken away, but He didn’t, yet what He did do is walked by my side through everyone of them.  I had this feeling that if you do feel this way, know you’re not alone, I wasn’t.

If you are facing that mountain, know that He is making a safe path for you, going before you and reaching out His hand to help you climb to the top and see the green valley beyond.

If you’re stuck in that inferno, know that He is there dancing in the flames beside you, you may feel the heat, but you won’t burn, He won’t let you so just dance with Him.

Maybe you’re feeling like you’re drowning and cannot rise above the waves, just look up, His hand is there to pull you above the waves, He wants you to walk on the water with Him until you reach the safety of the shore.

Or you feel alone in the desert, thirsty and empty, know once again that He is there beside you, drink the water He has for you and let Him raise you from the dust, until beyond the desolation you reach the green fields.

I guess that sometimes we just have to go through all these things, we may not know why, I certainly didn’t, but His ways are not our ways, by His will, not mine.

But be assured, whatever we face, we never face it alone.

BY YOUR SIDE by TENTH AVENUE NORTH
Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don’t turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching
As if I’m not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

‘Cause I’ll be by your side wherever you fall
In the dead of night whenever you call
And please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands at my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world’s sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

And I’ll be by your side wherever you fall
In the dead of night whenever you call
And please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Here at my side wherever you fall
In the dead of night whenever you call
And please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

‘Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, yeah I’ll love you
I’ll never let you go, no, no

And I’ll be by your side wherever you fall
In the dead of night whenever you call
And please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Here at my side wherever you fall
In the dead of night whenever you call
And please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you
Here at my side, my hands are holding you
Ohhh… 

To The Gate

TO THE GATE

Here I find myself
Wide desolate plains
Of my once within
The scars of my destruction
Lay wide across the earth

You call me to the narrow gate
Yet still I find my heart
Will wander in dead & dusty plains
I long to find the green pastures
So a captured heart can escape

Lead me to the narrow gate
For I’m lost and all alone
Lead me to the narrow gate
Where I will finally find
The open arms of heaven for me to fall

NOTE:
This one has been floating around in my head over the last few weeks, I did write down the last three lines last weekend, I’ve looked at it many times over the week, but I only found the words to complete it this morning, whilst listening to Worship practice.

It’s Okay

I found this poem earlier this evening, it’s from back in May this year, I honestly don’t remember writing it, let alone posting it.  But having written over last night and today about how alone I felt, this seemed to bring some comfort.

IT’S OKAY

Hello my child
I can see your heart
And I feel this is something
That I have to say
I need you to know
It’s okay not to feel okay

It’s okay
To be afraid of fear
There’s no shame
In the fear of being afraid
As when you’re frightened
I’ll be there holding tight

It’s okay
To feel alone in the dark
It’s alright to feel
Like you just don’t fit
Or that your life feels empty
I’ll be there to fill your heart

It’s okay
To feel that you are weak
There’s no shame in feeling that way
Or when you’re tired and weary
And you just can’t go on
I’ll be the one to carry you

It’s okay
It doesn’t matter to me
How far you fall
Or where you hide
Just lean on me my child
As I’ll be always by your side
