SILENT PAIN, SCREAMING

Silent pain am I screaming… Robbing your soul of triumph Making you languish in frustration angst Inflicted by skepticism’s oppressive blight Well, where is your belief in the Saviour, Source of mercy? Have you forsaken His offered grace?? Oh, check now your relationship with Him... Vanquish me with your affirmation: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”* Silent pain am I screaming… Haunting you of your transgression Openly exposing guilt that carnal nature denies Vexing your heart midst iniquities of arrogance Along selfishness in the guise of faithful service… Never can you hide your hypocrisy from the Almighty! Are you aware of divine power that surmounts torment? Will you take my challenge for genuine renewal?? Let me remind you of serenity-assertion that you once claimed: “And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.”** Silent pain am I screaming… Knowing your spirit’s earnest confession Surely, you need freedom from sin-bondage Only God alone can grant--- Thus, trust Him to heal you from the agony I’m causing by my afflictive sting… What are you waiting for? Come to Him by faith His assurance, take heed: “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.”***
