When the pain of loss is deep within; the grief reaches down and grabs your soul. Gray skies, a sun without rays, too weary to pray. Emptiness whispers silently in your ear, “Your heart’s gripped with fear”.
Look over the valley across the way, the friend you need is right on your
path, soon you will have joy maybe even laugh.
All you have to do is invite him into the depths of your being.
Jesus will carry your burdens up the mountain, strengthen you
to climb up this side of the pain. He will never leave you nor
forsake you. His love erasing the marks of anguish from your heart. In him
you can have a new start.
Rise above the darkness, dance in the rain.
