Restore Me Once Again {poem}

An aching pain wells up within my heart
Lately it feels like my world has been falling apart
Feeling empty, dry and tired out
Wanting to give up and just feeling so much doubt
Why now, why this, why me?
Why does it always seem like you expect so much from me?
Sometimes I feel like I can't give anymore
Sometimes I feel like I can't fulfill all that You have in store
My heart is empty and there's no more love to give
It's so hard to wake up each day and find the strength to forgive
Lord, fill my heart with hope and love once again
Give me strength to fulfill Your perfect plan
Renew me and fill me up once more
Remind me what I'm living for
Keep my mind focused on You
And help pull me through
I know that You know the hurt within my heart today
Help restore my heart again and take the pain away
You are the reason I continue to fight
You are the purpose and the meaning to my life
Remind me there is purpose for what I'm going through
And that You will always, always pull me through.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 42:7,11
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
Why are you so downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him
my Savior and my God

  2. Wow, Britt...This is beautiful. I love the honesty and heart that you put into this. I am actually gonna print this and put it by my desk if that's not too creepy. It's just an awesome reminder that there is absolutely purpose for what we go through and God does NOT give us more than we can handle. Thanks so much for sharing!
