“Falling” By Shirley Ann Washam~Hebert


Falling
When fear clouds my faith
and tears blur my eyes
when I’ve asked for Your help
but it seems that life
is still falling
apart
When I’ve prayed for some sunshine
but the rain keeps on flooding
my heart

 

I’ve had enough
Lord, I give up
I don’t want to get up
again
I don’t want to keep climbing
when
I just keep falling.

 

faithfully, my prayers go up
do You hear them?
endlessly, my tears come down
do You see them?
painfully, my heart, it breaks
can you feel it
LORD?
I don’t believe I have
the kind of strength
this takes.

 

I’ve had enough
Lord, I give up
I don’t want to get up
again
I don’t want to keep on climbing
when
I just keep falling.

 

Oh Lord, but then…
I am caught up in Your
embrace
safely covered by Your
grace
You give me strength to start
again
And Lord,
I KNOW You won’t let me go
when
I think I’m falling

About Shirley Ann Washam

I am an extremely blessed, divorced mother of four AMAZING children. Above that, I am a child of God! I pray that He would use this blog to speak through me to those who are hurting and discouraged. My goal is to share whatever is given by our LORD to uplift and encourage those who, like me, are blessed beyond measure, but still sometimes find themselves struggling to find answers and need a little encouragement. If you are in need of encouragement, I pray that you find it here, in the words that He speaks through me.

    That’s beautiful Shirley….thank you for sharing. I can relate to every word as I journey on as a widow after loosing my husband to suicide nearly 3 years ago. There’s been many a time when I’ve cried out to the Lord saying ‘it’s too hard’ and He reaches down and picks me up and gives me the strength and grace to carry on.
