I continue with a series of poems which stem from dreams coming at a difficult time in my life. If you missed the first three poems you can read them here:Billowing Waves, The Deep, Engulfed By Total Darkness:
Each time I have experienced an unpleasant or dark area in my life, I’ve always been blessed to sense God’s presence and His nearness. As the poem stated yesterday…..yes, at times He is also silent, and we know that His timing is always best. I now realize that it is because of those unpleasant experiences which helped me to develop my faith in God.
When we put our trust in God, He will make us feel secure, so we may walk forward with a new confidence.
High Thin Wire
Always doubts, but each day they are less,
I have proved my Saviour is there,
He walks with me through the fire,
Yes, my Saviour is always near.
No more do I feel alone
No more balancing on a high thin wire.
I recognize my Jesus,
Yes, He is there. He is with me in the fire.
By focusing on Jesus, I feel my feet steady,
He leads me against the norm.
What was once a high thin wire,
Beneath my feet is now a platform.
Why should I fear!
With much room around me I freely walk,
Building upon my confidence in Him,
I go forward in prayer,
Hand in hand we freely talk.
Even though still on the wire,
Safety and confidence is my gain
Sturdy and steady I go forward
From negativity and doubts I now refrain.
