Prince of Peace

I wrote this poem when I was in the depths of despair. When I felt like my depression would never end but the love of Jesus Christ gave me a glimmer of hope.

I feel the warm touch of the Savior and the heavenly comfort of my father in heaven

While I stand on my own it’s ok because I know Christ walks beside me

As my heart shatters once again

I know it will be made whole soon through him

As sorrow brings me to the depths of loneliness and pain I know I’ll be sane someday because of him

Sometimes skies are grey but I can be brave

We are so resilient for today and everyday

There are trials and we don’t get a say

There are people and situations that bring us to our knees

Begging please for it to stop and to all go away

Then I remember my Savior

His goodness and love fills my being

I’m believing what I am not seeing

I will conquer the dark days with my Redeemer

My brother will take me by the hand and guide me through the storm

He lifts me on the days I wish I was never born

Step by step and tear after tear he is always near

When you feel you can’t go on remember remember a redeemed soul song

I know that my redeemer lives

Reach out to him and he will embrace you

You are his to care for

This trial will not be that long

Come unto me and see, for I am with thee





One thought on “Prince of Peace

  1. So much beauty and pain in your words. There was a lot of remembrance for me while reading, of hard times and similar feelings. It also reminds me to be slow to judge and quick to help, just because someone isn’t bleeding on the outside doesn’t mean they aren’t in anguish. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and vulnerable words. Love you my Lani!
