Suffering No More

Reading from Psalm 38, one finds David’s words as he asks for God’s healing.  This poem’s verses bring to the forefront an active voice with feeling, praying, finding, healing, praising, and seeing.

Feeling darkness

Feeling unknown

Feeling empty

Feeling alone


Praying with faith

Praying this Psalm

Praying for hope

Praying for calm


Finding God’s love

Finding what’s heard

Finding new life

Finding His Word


Healing these wounds

Healing this soul

Healing my heart

Healing me whole


Praising Father

Praising accords

Praising heavens

Praising my Lord


Seeing the Cross

Seeing the light

Seeing Christ’s love

Seeing God’s might

From Psalm 38:15:  “But it is for you, O Lord, that I wait; it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.”
