Hitting Rock Bottom #poetry #devotion


rocks

Looking up beneath rock bottom

vessel broken on shoals and sand

Lord, I’m filled with desperation

appealing with empty hands

from here I see a wasteland

hope seems miles away

I call out to you, my maker

the darkest night turns bright like day

Looking up beneath the bottom

no place else to go

He draws faithful upward

my heart drawn up from oh so low

There seems to be times when we hit rock bottom in our lives. There can be one thousand different causes but that empty lost feeling can be all consuming.

If you are laying on your back looking up for something to lighten the situation, DO NOT LOSE HEART!

If you have a friend or a loved one in that situation, your loving smile is so reassuring.

 

“Every man has his secret sorrows

which the world knows not;

and often times we call

a man cold when he is only sad.”

 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.”

Psalm 23:4

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

Psalm 34:18

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!
