Lord, Are You Really There?

Do you ever feel as though God has deserted you?  Do you ever feel as if you are struggling along all on your own, weighed down by the burdens of the world and filled with despair?  Do you ever feel as though no-one cares?  Well, I too have felt this way, and it was during one of those times that the Lord gave me this poem as a reassurance of His love for me and to let me know that, no matter what is happening in my life, He is always there to help me through.  
I hope that it is also an encouragement to you.



In the stillness of the night,
Do You hear me when I call?
When I reach out in the darkness,
Are You really there at all?

When I cry out in my grief and pain,
Lord, do You really care?
You say You feel it too, my Lord,
But are you really there?

When my foes rise up against me,
Are You with me in the fight?
Will You arm me for the battle;
Will You be my guiding light?

As I walk this darkened path, my Lord,
Feeling lonely, and so small,
Will You hold me when I stumble?
Will You catch me if I fall?

 "I'm here, My child, I really am,
Cast out all fear and doubt.
I hear you when you cry to me,
And I will never shut you out.

As you stumble through the darkness,
Please, have no doubt at all:
I will hold you in My loving arms –
I will never let you fall.

I will arm you for the battle;
My joy will be your strength;
I'll be right there beside you;
I will go to any length.

So don't give up, My precious child,
You have no need to fear.
I love you, and I'll hold you…
My child, I'm always here."
