Help!

Crying out to God
help us Father
we are drowning.
We are over our heads
going down, slipping away
reaching for Your Hand.

Life is drowning us
debt is overwhelming
shutoffs threatening.
Van broken in back yard
out of food, out of everything
sick and tired of sick and tired.

Praying together
knowing in our knowers
our Father takes care of us.
Getting kinda dark, Father
getting harder not to fear
getting darker and darker.

Crying out to God
help us Father
we are drowning.
Seeing Your Light
above the darkning surface
reaching for Your Hand.

Oh my, sounds like you're out of work and daily essentials, Daniel.  Your faith is really tested in such dire times.

Right now I'm asking the Lord to answer your plea, if it be His will.  We know He wants the very best for us, yet we cannot understand how He works out all for good because our vision is so limited.

Thank you for sharing your faith in our Creator here.

God bless you and yours,
Rae

Indeed, it soulds like pretty dark times.  You are looking in the right direction, though.  Don't take your eyes off the Father.

"Seeing Your Light
above the darkning surface
reaching for Your Hand."

Heart-wrenching plea.
Give Him glory and praise in all things.

JL

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!
