It’s all around me…
Huddled under the umbrella you have given me,
And I’m hoping for a break in the downpour
But it keeps coming…
The clouds are dark and threatening,
Calling my name, laughing at my expense.
I scream STOP but nothing happens;
My eyes are closed, praying for refuge
As the ground I stand on gives in to defeat.
It’s gone, everything I have known gone…
And I’m helpless again,
Held by the One that gave me life.
