Day 4: I Find Sanctuary in Your Presence – Heal My Broken Heart

A Deeper Prayer
I remember walking in the shadows
When death touched my life -
Stole my dream -
Left me bleeding
In the dark-
I felt so alone.
My life changed forever on that day.
My life-light was stolen-
My innocence shattered-
My flesh – my baby – my own precious gift-
Was taken from me.
Why did you take them away from me?
How am I supposed to live another day without them here with me?
Don’t You love me?
What did I do wrong?
My heart weeps with you.
Death was never part of My Plan.
I love you – cherish you – and hurt when you hurt.
I love your child as much as I love you -
And I love you with an Everlasting-Steady love.
Even in the unending shadows of death’s darkness
You weren’t alone.
I was with you in those dark moments.
Can you look back and see
That my Shadow overshadowed death’s shadow?
I gave you comfort, protection, and guidance.
You never took a step alone – I was your Shield.
My Eye has always been upon you.
My Arms have never left you.
When you breathe, it’s because I breathe Life into you.
When your heart beats, it is from My very Power that it moves.
I am always with you – never to leave or forsake you.
Your healing is my very Work and Life-Light to be completed in you.
I wipe away all tears from your eyes.
In me, there is no more sorrow, but Hope.
Because of your mercy and loving-kindness towards me, I will wait on you, Lord.
Verses for Reflection:
Psalm 23:4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
Psalm 33:18 Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.
