He Leads Me Forward

February 6, 2015

“Please, let me help you
You are my friend, I want to help
Help isn’t such a bad thing, it’s really not
Not if you want to move forward.”

Forward motion can be positive or negative
Negative attitudes lead me down
Down into an abyss that leads to bondage
Bondage, a place that leaves me caged

Caged with nothing or no one to talk to
Too, you’re bored, feeling like you have nothing to do
Do? I’m in the fetal position; I can’t move
Move, squirm, it’s all pain to me

I want to move, but I’m in pain
So much so, I think I’ll go insane
Insanity surrounds, and I feel like I’m climbing the walls
Walls that are nonexistent; they’re just bars

Bars of self doubt and pity surround the cage
Cage looking out into the dark
Dark shadows surround me, but is that a spark?
Spark of white draws my eye

Eye catches on that little star so white
White pin prick reminding me of the bright star that shone that night
Night dark except for that diamond fair
The one above the shepherds, in the air

Air new comes afresh to my lips making me want for more
I start wondering what’s in store
I start searching for a way out of there
I send out the “help me” prayer

Prayer comes faster, and I find that Jesus is with me
I don’t feel so empty
The light has come closer, bit by bit.
I feel better, and a bar dissolves; I am able to get out of the caged pit.

“M’Aide, m’aide!” You cry out
“Please help me!” You call, yet doubt
Doubt and tremble; you shake and cry
Cry out to Him, yet you trust by and by

By His stripes, you have been healed
Even though that’s not how you feel
You are His child; you are not alone
He will rescue you, and lead you home

You read the instructions
And the directions
Yet you chose to ignore them
Now you feel condemned

Condemned and on the way to Hell
You feel you’re tumbling, pell-mell
Pell-mell into a place of no return
You feel that you’ve got burned

Burned and charred, you cry out
“Is anyone out there?” You hope and doubt
“Yes, I am here.” Jesus makes Himself known
“You’re hurt, I’ll help.” Over you, a blanket is thrown

Thrown over you, and you are taken to a special place
You rest, you’re healed, and you finally see His face
You groan, you trust, you have no choice
You want to talk; you have no voice

Voice so gentle like flowers – you finally hear Him
You wake up; your sight is no longer dim
“Wake up, dear heart, you’re safe and sound.”
“You’re soul is no longer on the ground.”

“Ground into pulp, it was when I found you.”
“You can now get up and stand, you can too!”
“I am here for you in all ways”
“Remember me as you walk through the day.”
