to let light burst forth

when words are locked behind prison walls
and tears are all that flow from inside,
when prayers pour forth in that desperate form of
silence
and darkness is a seductive friend,
when sorrows reside within and all else is
shut out,
when tomorrow lives next door and you can
never
bring
yourself
to knock,
if the dark night of the soul seems to be a
a dark lifetime,
stand,
Then your light shall break forth like the morning,       
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,      
 And your righteousness shall go before you;       
The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard





just keep walking,
with prayers of silence and
a steady diet of tears,
and He will follow,
light will burst forth.

  6. When we have no words for prayer, the Spirit interprets our groanings. I believe this to be Truth. God always provides.
