If Only My Heart Could Write

There's much to be said. If only I could open the door to all my soul has been witness to...to let you into my mind's eye...all of it. If I could let you see the good and the bad, how the Lord used it all and how He was so close like a shadow on my hand, how he bound my aching heart, planted my every unsure step, righted my every wandering thought, forgave the wrongs and made the bitter waters sweet, turned my fears into strength...oh, if I could somehow pour it right out onto this page so you could see that the LORD He is my everything. He is my strength, my unchanging unmoving ROCK. When everything around me was shaking and no-one else could understand, it was only then that I would really lean on only Him. It is His peace that wraps my countenance even when my heart melts with sorrow and regret, if only I had the words to lift up His worth. Yes, there's much to be said about my Lord who has sustained and continues to sustain me. He draws me ever close. I don't have the words at the moment, not sure I ever will, but I may make an attempt here soon to tell of His latest generous pouring out of grace and mercy to my ever thirsty soul.

Heather, what you said here was encouragement enough, but I'd love to hear your story if ever you find the words.

I've often thought of you and prayed for you even though you haven't posted.

Heather, your heart seems to be writing perfectly. Like mholgate, I would like to hear your story when you feel you can share it. I know that the Lord has been showing Himself to you and your family these several weeks. You've been close in my thoughts and prayers.

I know just what you mean. These past 3 months I have been through the hardest trial of my faith in 28 years. I can't put it in words and I can't tell others about it all but I can see myself how great a God I serve and how it has been him alone who has taken me through and how he alone has kept me from falling and quitting.

Praying for you. Sometimes life is overwhelming. Glad you have our Lord to cling to.
