Let Me Carry You Through

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“And it shall come to pass,
As soon as I am gone from thee,
That the Spirit of the Lord shall carry thee…”
1 Kings 18:12 (KJV)
I’ve asked you to give back to Me
what’s dearest to your heart.
You feel you cannot bear it;
that it’s tearing you apart.
You can’t see past the sorrow, now;
and dear one, that’s okay.
Just know that I’m still close beside you,
through each tear-stained day;
to hold you close and wipe your tears,
and even feel your pain.
And when you lie awake at night,
I’ll gently call your name;
then whisper words of comfort
deep into your very soul.
I’ll wrap my arms around you
till your spirit is made whole.
But till then, in those darkest hours,
feel My love for you.
Just hold on to Me tightly.
Let My strength carry you through.
