A Lament

By @Joyful17

After reading Psalm 77, I realized that it is okay to ask God hard questions. It is okay to to tell Him you don't understand, or that you doubt His plan. He already knows what you are thinking, but instead of internalizing it, I am learning to pray it to God.

Inspired by: Psalm 77

Chapter 1

Sometimes I question, I ask why!

At my circumstances, I moan and cry.

To You, oh God, hear my plea!

Hear this scream, answer me!

This grief washes and bleeds.

Piling, overflowing, are my needs.

Desperate, alone, oh how I feel!

My heart races, another breath I steal.

Will You come and meet me where I am?

Do You truly understand, Sacrificed Lamb?

Even if I can’t see You, are You still there?

Do You still hold me, Do You still care?

God of Jacob, in You is my song.

Though it drowns in rushing waters, it carries on.

The aching of my soul will not stop me.

To You, the only I AM, all praises to thee.

Though unseen your steps are.

Though this path leads long and far,

I will trust, I will bow,

I will listen, I will follow, starting now.

    I love it!!! This just illustrates so so clearly that our God can take it, you know? You don’t have to put on a face and act “holy” because the book of Romans clearly states that “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” And then Ephesians says that “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition, present your requests to him.” I love how clearly this shows that Jesus can take all of our broken prayers and turn us into something beautiful.
    Happy writing!
