Where Am I

One night on my knees Praying in much agony My burden, I could not undo I cried, "Jesus where are you" In silence, I was still His spirit I began to feel Answering my urgent cry Jesus ask, "Where am I?" I am in the whisper of the wind I am in the heart of your dearest friend I am in the memory of loved ones gone on I am in the breaking of the dawn I am in each sunrise I am in the deliverance of my children's cries I am in the hands, of the hungry fed I am in the power that raises the dead I am in the arms that holds one tight I am in the beam of one's guiding light I am in the still voice whispering in one's ear I am in the peace that calms one's fear I am in the boat, of life's raging sea I am in the blood that sets man free I am in the dry valley, living water I am in the life of the fatherless, a father I am in the joy of one's singing I am in the comfort that finds one weeping I am in the courage allowing one to stand I am in the confidence of every man I am in the answer that every man seeks I am in the strength for the very weak I am in the compassion of the fellow man I am in the footprints upon the sand I am in the eyes of a beggar I am in the healing of a leper I am in the friendship to the poor I am in the waves crashing upon the shore I am in the love of a brother I am in the forgiveness of another I am in the blessing of unity I am in the freedom of captivity I am in the midnight hour I am in persistence, one's strong tower I am in a child's warm embrace I am in one's favor, Amazing Grace I am in the giving of life's eternal crown I am in the stone, taking giants down I am in the fall of one's enemy I am in the end, one's destiny I am in the way of salvation I am in the battle without hesitation I am in death's defeat, that gave you life I am in the solution of trouble and strife I am in all that is good I am in the words of the Holy Book I am in your presence when you pray I am in your life every day I am the first and the last I am your future, I am your past I am the beginning, I am the end I am eternity, I am, Amen My child, I will hear you when you call I will never let you fall I will never leave your side I will never say good-bye Written by: Donetta Harless Thursday, July 28, 2016
