Staying

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2 (NKJV).

Staying:

 I’m here

I see your longing

I hear 

Your cry 

In the deep of the night

I come watching you breathe

I stay near where you lie

 

Don’t fret now

I hold you close

You are not alone

Never on your own

 

My son, my daughter

I am your Living Water

The One Shepherd who promises to stay

Through every long night

And bright sunlit day

 

In the sound of bird song

You can hear My Call

The dawn chorus sings of Me

Such sweet rounded notes

Playing their own love tune

 

In the face of a flower 

I smile

With colours so bright

You can see My Light

Shining now

 

Look closer

Breathe in My Fragrance

Know My Stillness amidst the rush

Take time to stop and remember Me

I am The One who died

On that dreadful tree

To set you free

 

My Love for you never ends

Hold on, hold tight

I will see you through

With My Great Might

 

It is I who calls you

Do not fear

I Am is near

By your side now

Right here

My love.
