"Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord you God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to." Deuteronomy 15:10

Here I am
Under crushing rain
Every drop
Another problem
Why don't You hear my cries?
I'm on my knees begging You
Take my life
I cannot live any more
All this pain
All this suffering
How can I live?

But you reached Your hand out
And through the rain
And through my tears
I felt Your loving presence
I ask You
What did I do to deserve Your love

You take my hand and smile
The rain slows down
The sun comes out
I feel a smile creep on my face
And You lead me
To a bright sunny path
Love and smiles everywhere
And now
Here I am
All pain
And all suffering
A distant dream

I wrote this piece my first semester of college; I felt like I did not belong anywhere. But as I was writing this poem, I realized I wasn't alone and that God was with me and I could get through it.
