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...

STAND


 


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.
Regards,
Chris
