THE CHRISTIAN WALK, Walking with God

Hidden


Here I stand in the middle of a crowd

Yet unseen

Here I am on the hill

Yet unseen

Here I stand by the water

Yet unseen

===============

Many ask to be hidden

Yet I am unseen

Many asked to be shielded

Yet I am unseen

Many avoid the attention

Yet I am unseen

===============

It feels like I am transparent

Yes unseen

It feels like my day never comes

Yes unseen

It feels dark everyday

Yes unseen

===============

How can I be so hidden?

How can I be so unseen?

How do I miss the light?

How do I walk so light footed?

How can I be found?

Why am I unseen?

===============

I wasn’t born to be unseen

I wasn’t born to be a shadow

I wasn’t born to be a tree

I wasn’t born to be a blade of grass

Yet that is how I feel

For I am unseen

===============

Will this ever change?

Will I one day rise?

Will the day dawn?

Will the light shine on me?

Will the darkness lift?

Will I ever be seen?

===============

Why do you want to so visible child?

Why is the limelight so important?

Why are so enamoured?

Why do you smell of desperation?

Why do you get so upset?

When I have made you unseen

===============

You are hidden under my wings

You are kept in the cleft of the rock

You are hidden in my house

You are kept in the place of safety

You are hidden to be secure

You shall be seen

===============

You are hidden as you grow

You are hidden as you rise

You are hidden as you become

You are hidden as you gain strength

You are hidden until you are ready

You shall be seen

===============

There is a plan

There is a lifeline

There is a process

There is a pattern

There is a destination

You shall be seen

===============

Be still

Be patient

Be diligent

Be strong

Be wise

Await your unveiling

===============

There is a time

There is a place

There is a day

There is a way

There is an outburst

Await your unveiling

===============

You will be seen

The Simple Life

Alone


The crowds are large

The people many

The needs great

The conversation lively

But my heart is lonely

=====

The sky is blue

The wind is cool

The sun is just right

The birds are singing

But my heart is lonely

=====

The rain has fallen

The seeds have sprouted

The plants have grown

The fruit is harvested

Yet my heart is lonely

=====

I’m laughing in public

I’m chatting with people

I’m making progress at work

I’m teaching the wore

Yet my heart is lonely

=====

My heart isn’t just lonely

It’s broken, scattered

It’s blown to smithereens

Its pulzerised

There’s nothing there

=====

You have forsaken me

I am adrift at sea

There’s no land around me

No sight of a tree

Just water everywhere

I am alone

=====

You have deserted me

I am in the desert

In the scorching sun

Low on water

With mirages all around

I am alone

=====

You have abandoned me

I am by the roadside

Not a vehicle in sight

Those that pass speed by

Not a glance my way

I am alone

=====

I have no food

I have no water

I have no shelter

I have no family

I have no work

I am alone

=====

I have nowhere to go

I have nothing to do

I have no one to talk to

I have no hope to hold on to

I have no reason to believe

I am alone

=====

Then I hear it

A rustle in the air

A shift in the atmosphere

A stillness in the silence

Like a warm wind blew through

I am no longer alone

=====

I was no longer alone

There in the room it all changed

Peace descended like a warm rain

Calm wrapped me like a blanket

My heart began to settle

I am no longer alone

=====

I am still at the bottom

And the only way is up

I am still unsure how to move

But strength is coming soon

Though I am still grasping

I am no longer alone

=====

I am learning my Father cares

I am learning He has a plan

I am learning nothing is wasted

I am learning it all works

I am learning He is enough

I am no longer alone

=====

I am not alone

God is with me

I am not alone

Grace is abundant

I am not alone

Strength is rising

=====

I am not alone

My Father is watching

I am not alone

Jesus is with me

I am not alone

The Spirit is teaching

=====

I am not alone

I will never be alone

I am learning to press in

I am growing in faith

I am no longer alone

=====
