Crying Out

From Psalm 23:4:  “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me.”

Darkness shields life’s guiding light

Causing worries to take flight


Life’s trials, too much to bear

Ask, who really seems to care?


World seems to be crashing down

Running dry, emptiness drowns


Words and actions, meek and weak

Ask, who shall one run to seek?


Vacant wilderness, so dark

Crying out, life’s question mark


Heart and soul, feeling hollow

Ask, what voice shall one follow?


Voice answers, restoring hopes

Searching from distant slopes


Good Shepherd, looking for one

Saving His flock, one by one

From John 10:14-16:  “ I am the good shepherd.  I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father.  And I lay down my life for the sheep.  I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold.  I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice.  So there will be one flock, one shepherd.”

  1. What a beautiful and hopeful end. “Running dry” and “life’s question mark” describes a lot of what I’ve been feeling this year, but I also feel Jesus reaching out for the one, and that’s truly a gift. Thank you for sharing!
