Just to Be in Thy Presence

Just to Be in Thy Presence

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Just to be in Thy Presence

 

This world is chaos,

Someone is always hurting someone.

It never seems to lessen,

But is altogether undone.

 

Through the whipping winds

And treacherous rains,

Let me come rest awhile;

Just to be in Thy Presence is my gain.

 

Where I am found safe,

Where I can simply be.

Where I surrender to Thy love,

Where I am the real me.

 

Knowing all the parts of who I am,

Thy grace still wraps me in Thy safety.

I’d give up anything

Just to be in Thy Presence so sweet.

 

I have no control in life,

Things happen in my own

That try to make me fearful,

But Lord, I rest in Thee alone.

 

In the One who gave His life for me,

That I might believe in Thy Name with all essence…

In the One who has set my soul free, do I long…

Just to be in Thy Presence.

I am receiving severance pay from my Catholic roots...but the heart and soul still believes strongly.
This poem reminded me of that.

Thanks for your words and for your visit. I appreciate you.
Not religious myself, but we all grasp onto something for hope, and the way things have been going lately faith sure is getting tested. Hopefully good times ahead.

A wonderful poem dear Melinda.
"I have no control in life,
Things happen in my own
That try to make me fearful,
But Lord, I rest in Thee alone."
I liked the above lines and I believe. We need prayers, to lead with hope and kindness. Hard world for many. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.
