Sometimes I am able to stand because of my faith in God. I am still standing because of the grace and help of God. God is my very present help in times of trouble...



He commands me to stand

When I wanted to run

Stand… He said

When the fig tree does not blossom

Stand… He said

When there’s no fruit on the vine

Stand… He said

When the fields yield no harvest

Stand though my child it’s hard

To stand and you want to run

So I stood

Though it was hard

I stood in faithfulness

I stood in hope

I stood though it pained me to stand

I stood when I did not want

To do the same things again and again

I stood even when I felt shame

I stood… though rejected

I stood…when engulfed in fear

I stood… inspite of my doubts

I stood when I felt all alone

I stood through my weakness

Because He gave me His grace

To endure… to persevere… to stand

He empowered me

He refreshed me

He revived me

He healed me

So I was enabled to stand

I did not run away

But became an overcomer

In standing I became victorious

There is power in 'to stand' - i liked the first part of your poem especially, and like others have said it is an uplifting write - i don't express my idea of God in the way you have, but the sentiments and idea of faith and grace, waiting for a renewed faith and purpose from a place of doubt, standing, still, not running (beepbeep Roadrunner!) is something i can relate to very strongly - enjoyed your poem, thank you - Nicky x

Thank you for this work. This is very uplifting and made my day reading these words. "In standing I became vistorius.", words we should all live by and have faith in.
