Faith Can Give Us Wings

You’re down on your knees
The tears won’t stop coming
You want to find the strength
To get up and start running

You have failed
Or someone’s failed you
What has your life come to
And what more can you do

You gave all you had
You really gave it all
Why is no one here
To catch you when you fall?

Well all you need is faith
You’re really not alone
You look for strength and you can’t see
That you’ve had it all along

Don’t think too much
Just let it be
Learn from the experience
And really try to see

That there are things we cannot change
No matter how much they matter
That we must not dwell on things
That made our hearts shatter

All we have is today
A clean canvas to paint
And you can choose to leave it blank
And choose someone else to blame

But sooner or later
You’re going to have to see
Faith holds the crutches
That gets us off our knees

If you can stop thinking about yesterday
That melted you in sorrow
Take it day by day
And not worry about tomorrow

You’ll set yourself free
You need to see
You can’t run away
From what is meant to be

But we do have choices
Each day we are given
We can chase with open hearts
The dreams that we believe in

We make with our lives
What WE decide to make
In the journey we will fall
And learn from our mistakes

And we CAN rise above
The sea we’re sinking in
We hang on to our hope
And then our faith gives us wings

I think sometimes we struggle, and struggle and struggle, trying to do everything in our own strength when all the Lord wants is us to rest in his arms and let him take care of things. It's not easy! I know. I'm still learning! But the times I've learned to let go and just let God take over he was so incredibly gentle, loving and faithful and I would just stand back in awe and watch him work. Sometimes it's not right away but his timing is always perfect and he can give us peace and comfort while he's fixing the things in our lives. Just keep turning to him. You're on the right path. No one said life would be easy, in fact Jesus warned us that we'd have many trials and heartaches in this world but he said "Take heart! I have overcome the world." Just keep giving it to him and rest in his care. That's all he wants us to do.
I'm always here!

                                               I Have said this to you, that in me you
                                               may have peace. In the world you have
                                               tribulation; but be of good cheer,
                                               I have overcome the world.

                                                                                             John 16:33

My mother wrote alot of poetry when she was younger.  She wrote one about suicide, one for each of us children, alot about depression, and then one about a mother loosing her children.  (I had 1 bother and 1 sister die at early ages.  When I find them if she doesn't object maybe I will share some.

Oh, I'm so sorry for everything your family went through! That's my worst fear, to lose my son :( I'm very sorry.
I'm glad that she was able to let her feelings out in writing. It's very therapeutic. I'm sure it was horrible for you to go through as well...
