I woke up on Monday and looked up at the sky With a pain in my heart and tears in my eyes I said “Lord, please help me, I don't know what to do. I lost my job, I need some help, I have no one but you."
The Lord looked down upon me with sadness in his eyes. “The world is in a sorry state and I apologize. For all the pain it's caused you, there's just one thing I'll say: “It’s okay to cry my child, but don't forget to pray.”
I woke up on Tuesday and looked up at the sky With a pain in my heart and tears in my eyes I said “Lord please help me, I don’t know what to do. The food is scarce, the kids are sick, I have no one but you.
The week dragged by thru Saturday and things seemed worse each day. I remembered what the Lord said: “It’s okay to cry, but pray” So I cried and prayed, I cried and prayed, with no relief in sight. And I went to bed exhausted but couldn't sleep that night.
I woke up on Sunday and looked up at the sky With pain in my heart and tears in my eyes I said “Lord I’ve had enough and I’m about to break I think I might just end it all, for everybody’s sake."
“I’ve not deserted you my child, I’ve counted every tear Your burdens, although heavy, are not more than you can bear Soon the sun will warm your face and make you smile again So rest a little easier and trust in me till then.”
Then the Lord reached down and held me in his arms With a gentle hand he wiped my tears and spoke these words so calm “My child I love you dearly and have heard you pray your best But there is no crying on Sunday, it is the day of rest.
I’ve heard you cry, I’ve heard you pray and I will not desert you Your faith in Me will get you through these tragedies that hurt you. So rest today and worry not and leave the rest to me If you do that, I can promise you, the best is yet to be."
