Through His Presence


They say God is the answer.
God is the way.
Well if that's true
then where is He today?
I've called and called
but nobody ever showed or answered.
Why has He left me stranded here in this desert
without lifting me up
or showing the way?
I cried and cried
but He never came.
I learned to push through
and walk on my own two feet.
Till one day,
a voice of greatness came through,
saying to me,
you did me good.
You went through the fire
when nobody would.
You are my child
and forever I'll be
with you.
It's not always easy to see,
the hand that holds you,
carrying you through
the fire that burns you.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
