He Will Carry You

Suggested Scripture
Psalm 55

Key Verse
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
(Psalm 55:22, NIV)

The news hit me will so much force it took my breath away. One of my friends in the cystic fibrosis community has finally succumbed to the disease. Her fight was over. She left behind a loving family and many, many friends. We are trusting God to carry us through so we can carry on.

A few years ago, I wrote this poem to encourage some friends who had experienced a tremendously painful loss at a time that should have been very joyful. I hope that it offers some encouragement to anyone struggling to find their footing after having to make a heart-wrenching 180 degree turn around because of life's circumstances. I know from personal experience that God really does carry us when life gets all turned around. When everything else is out of control, he remains steadfast and can be our comfort when we cast our cares on him.

"He'll Carry You Through"

In one heartbeat, lives are changed forever.
In an instant, dreams fall down with tears.
From that moment nothing is the same again
and in that second, God sees all your fears.
And he knows the hurt,
and he knows your pain.

And he knows that you don't know what to do.
He sees you on your knees
Asking Him to be your strength,
'cause you know he will carry you through.

He will carry you
through the trials and pain that you face.
He will carry you
when you lose the strength to run this race.
I know he will carry you through.
In his loving arms, he'll carry you through.

In a second your plans fell apart.
In a flash, your world lost its spin.
In a moment your heart broke in half
and now you want it to be whole again.
In that brokenness God holds you close,
wipes stray tears away.

With each day, he's lifting you
he promises you a future
and hope within his plan.
Each day he will carry you through.

He will carry you
through the trials and pain that you face.
He will carry you
when you lose the strength to run this race.

I know he will carry you through.
In his loving arms he'll carry you through.




Reflecting Pool

When have you needed to be carried in God's arms?
Do you find it difficult to believe God is there for you when bad things happen?
What painful things do you need God to carry for you today?
