A Bruised Reed

A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;

Dear Lord, I am bruised
And I am bent down low
I am about to break
And I’m about to let go

Lord, I am smoldering
About to be snuffed out
My light is growing dim
Don’t know what life’s about

Lord, you made a promise
That I’m going to hold you to
Lord, you see my heart
Lord, You know what to do

I know that you love me
For you spoke to me today
You said no one can harm me
That you’d love me come what may

Lord, I’m a bent reed
Lord, I’m a smoldering wick
Lord, come to my rescue
Oh dear Lord, do be quick

This burden is too heavy
Too heavy for me to bear
And I do not deserve it
Please, Lord, show me your're there

Straighten up this bruised reed
Lord, rekindle my fading light
Lord, fill me with your love
Only your love can make it right.

    Great poem for those losing their way here Eileen. A little faith can do wonders and that thought of not being alone must surely help. Lovely. Take care, Richard

    WE must never lose faith in our Lord! HE is there for us: For you, for me, for everyone, don't doubt it, not for a second! Take a deep breath and stand up! HE will support you, no matter what! God bless you dear Eileen! Beautiful writing and true!

    Esai ena angelos gia mena, Demetri. Ti na sou po? Mou denes dynami kai elpida....panta! O THEOS na sou evlogisee. Efkharisto...efkharisto apo ola ten kardia mou. Thank you for your kind words, my dear poet. I never doubt Him....I know that no matter where I may wander or roam...His open arms are there for me! Thank you.
