“God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.”
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
Well meaning, but unhelpful words,
When you know you can’t handle what’s in front of you,
When you think you might actually die
God, help me,
I’ve been there before, on both ends
Of this conversation.
Let me be a quiet presence
A channel of love
A comforting touch,
And if I must talk,
Give me words through which you speak.
“I love you.”
“You are not alone.”
“You are held in God’s tender embrace.”
Let me be your heart,
I am yours.
