and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared with it." Proverbs 8:11 Amplified

Heart Beat


Lift my heart Lord

    From the despair within.

Fill me with your presence

    Show me your light.


Night time needs to be over,

    I need the glories of your Sun.

The pain is deep

    And brokenness overwhelms me.


Your challenge is to trust

    I am weary from the battle.


Can you see my unshed tears

    Bottled so deep inside?

They want to be shed

    But something I don’t see or

    Understand stops them.


I am tied to this place

    With invisible chains.

I want to break free

    But what if when the chains fall

    There is nothing left of me but dust.


I return to you, my true refuge

    Gasping for air, for peace and

    For my heart to beat without pain.


Heal me Lord as only you can.

    Put my feet upon a clear path.


Surround me with Love.


By Diane Marie Shaw    (Being Real)

Just read your contribution Chicken Soup for the Soul, Runners.

It was quite good.

Thank you.
