Spiritually and Emotionally Connected

Over The Chasm

Lord, I’m stripped of all earthly support.

Terror fills my body as I put one foot forward,

Only to take it back again.

Dry mouth, pounding chest, trembling hands,

Nowhere to go, don’t know what to do.

People tell me go here, go there,

But nothing seems to work.

All support around me has crumbled.

Is there really a Higher Heavenly Being?

I’ve lost everything, I have nothing left to lose,

By faith I will leap over the chasm

And by faith I will believe.

I will bathe in the Word and see where it takes me.

Situation hasn’t changed, but I feel lifted.

Maybe I’ll take the chance.

I will plant both feet over the abyss,

And by faith I believe You will hold me up,

And I will walk on.

By Leola Durant

This is another poem from my book “Walking With the Spirit.” I wrote it at a time in my life when everything seemed to be falling apart. I was ill, I was in pain and I thought no one cared. I also wondered where God really was. Could He not see me? I started searching the bible on a daily basis to prove or disprove whether it was really possible to have a connection with God.

While my situation did not change immediately, I started looking at things differently. I also decided to allow God to be my Guide, it meant that I would have to let go of anger, that I would have to forgive. As difficult as it was to do, I did it. My reward from God would be riches, not the earthly riches that we seek, but just a great sense of well-being, something that no one can take from me. This is why I want to be a witness for God, because of what He has done, and is still doing for me.

    That’s the beauty of having God in our lives because when He is there we never have to feel alone. I now know I have a True Friend (Jesus) and will never have to experience that sense of loneliness again.
