Defeated…  Hopeful…

by Lisa Tang

Like a looming cloud that hovers over my mind
I know that the inevitable is about to take place
No matter how hard I try to cast away the thought
It comes back time and again to haunt me

As I peer up the skies for guidance
A dull ache envelopes my heart
Gasping for breath, for a sigh of relief
I feel weak and powerless

Only in God’s promises can I find comfort
And I try to reassure myself that I need to have faith and remain strong
“Even through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil”

The Lord has delivered and will deliver me
From the hands of darkness and the claws of Satan
In Him, I must trust and obey
For He will make my paths straight

O Father, help me to praise You
No matter what darkness I may be thrusted into
You are the lamp unto my feet
And you will heal me and restore me

Even when all else fails
You will never abandon me, your poor and defeated child
Help me to be a soldier
So that you can use me to be a testimony of Your neverending love

As I cry out to You, O Lord
Please hold my hand and walk with me step by step
And as I rest in Your embrace
Help me to know my place and believe without question

You are the only one who knows me through and through
Help me to hang on with strength that can only come from You
I long to be with Thee
For I love Thee
