“All your longings, lackings,
disappointments, and delays
are ever before Him. He sees. He knows.
He is never deaf to your sighs.”
Even when I cannot breathe the words,
He hears me sigh.
He knows exactly what I’m feeling;
Hears my inner cry.
And He wants nothing more than that I’d
Come to Him in prayer,
To lay my burdens at His feet,
And cast on Him my care.
He’s always waiting for me with
His arms held open wide.
He whispers to me softly as
He draws me to His side.
And I know I don’t even have
To speak aloud the words.
For my sweet Father knows my heart,
And every sigh is heard.
“casting all your care upon Him,
for He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7 NKJV
