God, Are You With Me?

God, be with me…
Especially on those days when the skies are dark.
And the storms rage inside my heart, my mind, and my spirit.

And I feel…
Lost and without hope.
Anxiety, fear and doubt rising up to overtake me.

And I wonder…
Will I ever catch my breath between the constant waves of change crashing over me?
How will I have the strength to accomplish all there is to do in the day ahead?

And I ask myself…
Why are my words and actions never enough?
Where is the strength I need to do more than endure?

Pour your truth over me, God…
You are my rock, my refuge, my hiding place.
You walk with me in every challenge I face.

You are my…
Jehovah-Rapha. The God who heals.
You bring freedom and life to my old wounds and hidden scars.

You are my…
Jehovah-Shalom. The God of peace.
You whisper and gently urge me to trust you.

You are my…
Jehovah-Jireh. The God who provides.
You see me. You hear me. In you, I am whole.
