A Friends Touch…


This was inspired by a poem written by Verbnflow. Can find this beautiful piece here: http://verbnflow.wordpress.com/2014/04/24/trust-fall/

Exactly what the broken need,
To connect shattered pieces, if only temporarily.
Compassion is the glue, and love is the lacquer.
That remains with the hurting soul, ever after.
The warmth of a touch, can melt away the pain,
Cover sins and abolish stains.
Many a tear is saved from crying,
From a soul trying to keep from dying.

Sometimes it’s hard to just sit still,
To wait as You say to do.
To fight against my unruly human will,
When my flesh is crawling with desires to move.

I know You’ll renew my strength,
If I could, with trust, find peace with pause.
But I want resolution sooner rather than later,
Won’t You help me with my cause?

I know You’re working.
I believe in Your truths.
If only biding time were easy.
But, I question, what good would that do?

You say I’ll mount up on wings like eagles,
Wings that rise above raging storms.
Catching the powerful wind currents,
Which lift and carry them along.

Lifted high, yet dependent on Your support,
In stillness or in movement.
Please grant me the willingness I need,
To move through and beyond this.

Isaiah 40:31:

“But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”
