Overwhelmed

The days are turning bitter now. Darkness prolongs its stay,
The leaves are dead upon the ground. All nature painted gray.
My life lays ashen in fall frost for all I do feels vain,
The motion’s there yet motionless. My heart pumps pallid pain.

O God, I am but overwhelmed. So lost in circumstance;
O God, I’m sinking in the cold, disheartened in the dance.
But Love was there, it always was. My Self had veiled His voice,
In softness then I heard Him speak. “In Love you have a choice.”

My hollow heart had hurt so long. Succumbed to night’s dark voice,
Forgotten was perspective’s call To mourn or to rejoice.
O God, I am but overwhelmed. So lost in circumstance;
O God, I’m sinking in the cold, disheartened in the dance.

I cried to Love to help me see the world the way He sees,
To sweep away the shriveled leaves and set my bleak mind free.
A trickle—then a cleansing flow. His blood washed death away,
The seasons flipped from fall to spring, dispelling winter’s gray.

Prayer – O God I am but overwhelmed with You in circumstance; O God Your Love broke through the frost and set my heart to dance. Thank you. Amen. (From Psalm 149:3-4)
