Praying Out Loud

Show me the lights
You made for my dark
Show me the lives
You set apart
To keep me holding on…

The ones who will stay
The ones who embrace
All of the darkness of me.

Show me the lies
I have welcomed as friends
Show me the ties
I let bind me again
That keep me from holding on. 

Take them away
Bring on the day
And shatter this darkness in me. 

The Lord is a lamp
That lights up my darkness;
To Him, the night is as day.
And when I’m surrounded
By blackened seas,
I know that HE knows my way. ❣

Inspired by someone I spoke to today, whose pain is not unfamiliar to me, albeit unique in its own ways to its bearer.

Final verse is a rhyming compilation of Micah 7:8, Psalm 139:12, and Psalm 142:3. These are my favorite verses to hold onto on the darker days. ❣
