The Healing

The ache I’ve felt in my soul
The desire to be made whole
The longings that have gone unmet
The pain I want to forget

A Healer I’ve needed and prayed for
The Calmer of the stormy roar
My Hero in difficult battles
The Releaser of chains and shackles

Hope starts to sing once again
He rides on the wings of the wind
The Healer reaches in and holds my heart
Breathes life and healing into every part

The pain and anguish have been soothed
The darkness cries and begins to move
Out of my heart and out of my life
My soul rejoices to find the light

I can stand up again, straight and tall
He holds my hand, lest I fall
I lean on Him, my Healer and Guide
My heavenly Father who will provide

He will keep His promises, they will come true
I will give Him my all, He’ll see me through
The troubling and uncertain times that lie ahead
My heart is now safe, my soul is fed

His fellowship will see me through dark valleys
His presence will brighten lonesome alleys
My heart beats strongly once again
In Him I have a faithful friend

I’m ready to love others and share the truth
My story of pain and healing is the proof
That He’s real and catches every tear
That He heals those who to Him draw near

My heart is ready to do great feats
For His name as He makes me complete
This joy I’ve never known before
This love I will cherish forevermore

    What a beautiful poem, Katy! It was especially touching to read this today, one day after what would have been my husband's 55th birthday.
