David (Psalm 34)

“The Lord is close to the broken hearted and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.”

The Lord is indeed close to the broken hearted…It just does not feel like it sometimes

Lord God
when I walk in those “dark valleys”,
help me to remember
those dark furrows
cradling seeds,
ready, willing, waiting…
while new life beckons
towards the light,
and beauty
beyond belief…
