Broken Poem

Chances are, you have experienced emotional pain that was completely unbearable at some point in your life. The pain was so inexplicably bad that you literally felt like you couldn’t handle it. I’m not going to pretend I have the answers to taking away your pain. I do know one thing is true, though. God is always with you, and He is the ultimate comforter.

It is ok to be sad. It is ok to feel pain. Just know that it does get better. God loves you. Pray that you would feel God’s comfort. I promise you that God knows what you are going through, and you are never completely alone. As scripture tells us in Deuteronomy 31:8, The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

God inspired me to write this poem for people who have gone through any kind of emotional pain.


Your pain is unbearable, your heart completely broken
No one could understand your pain even if you could show them
You feel like you can’t go on anymore, your faith’s completely gone
The one last shred of hope you had is like a shadow in the dawn
You know it would be easier to just up and give right up
But there’s a stirring in your heart that knows your time is not yet up
There IS a light at the end of this dark tunnel my child, don’t you give up

There is someone who knows your pain, and He wants to hold your hand
He’s telling you “My child, I love you dearly, and I understand.”
“You want to give up, but you can’t, for I have plans for you my dear,
Your brokenness is for a time, but my love is always here.
You won’t always feel like going on, you won’t always feel that I’m here
But I promise you I will never leave you, you can trust in my love for you my dear.”

You see the one who loves you loved His Son so much, that he watched Him suffer too
He went through pain unimaginable, But he counted it as a gain for you
His love covers over everything, yes even the broken you
He died so He could live through you, will you let Him live in you?

God’s Word is alive and active, and it falls like a holy rain
There is a peace that surpasses all understanding, even your unbearable pain
God’s love will sustain you, He will put people in your path
To encourage you, to comfort you, to help keep you on the narrow path

I don’t know the human words to comfort you, but I know these simple truths:
He will sustain you in the rain
He will sustain you through your pain
He will uplift you through His holy words and by His Holy Name
He will sustain you
He will sustain you

Note: The line “God’s word is alive and active” was inspired by the Bible verse Hebrews 4:12.
