Savior Save

Lies that fly by night and the plagues that stalks by day
Has overwhelmed and consumed my way…
The plight that takes flight at noon has too soon struck
Down my spirit as I inherit the wind…
Deadly pestilence that creeps in morning with no warning
Has filled the hole in my very soul…
And am I undone now with none to save as the thousands
Heed the call to bring my battle fall?
Even my very children have turned their backs for lack
Of love as they cover their own shame;
And who’s to blame that the enemy came to man so lame?
My strength has dissipated into the air…
And is this fair that no one seems to care to help bear
My cursed burden that brings me low below?

Savior Save

  1. Oh Jon, you know what goes around comes around. Please do not despair. Sometimes, things don’t go the way we would wish but there’s a good reason behind everything that happens. And who but you to understand that! You do know I’m always here (and there) for you. It saddens me too to know you know. Much love and prayers, my dear friend.

  2. Oh no.. this is such a deep heart-bleeding poem. Jonathan. I feel the darkness you are fighting. My heartfelt prayers are with you.
    If you ever need a listening ear, do not hesitate to contact me:
    I am going to leave you with a quote from one of my favorite writers, Oswald Chambers:
    “The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.”
    Blessings, and hugs!

    1. Thank you, Dajena! Your prayers are much appreciated and oh-so needed right now. And thank you for sharing that word of encouragement from Chambers, too! Blessings!
