There are days, it feels as if hell has a grip on my soul.

 

I cry out for mercy and He hears my cries.

 

I ask, why must the suffering have no end.

 

I am but a tortured soul begging for peace.

 

Will there be no end?

 

Will it never cease?

 

Pain riddles my body attempting to shake my soul.

 

I will not bend.

 

I will not falter.

 

I know my Father's power and unending mercies

 

I know the dark clouds lift and tears dry.

 

I've seen the sun shine in darkness and hope that lies within disaster.

Oh, so moving! So many of us can identify with these feelings, Nikki. Just a suggestion: I would change mercys to mercies. No one can write something like this without experiencing it. Saying a prayer for you. 🧡

Beautiful poem!  It reminds me of a Psalm I've been working on memorizing.

 

Psalm 130 King James Version (KJV)

1 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.

2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

3 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.

6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Thank you so much HK1.  Thank you for sharing this.   This psalm is so powerful.  It is such an honor to be told that my writing sounds anything similiar to the beautiful psalms of David.  Thank you so much for your support in my writing❤
