The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. – Psalm 37:23
A cell mate shared this beautiful Chinese song with me which lyrics resonated with every fibre of my being- I can relate to those times when I felt downcasted. In translating this song to English (though not literal), I hope to share this song to minister to those who need to hear it…

Pray, because I feel inconsequential;
Pray, because I know I need understanding, to your Will as it is important to me.
Pray, I can no longer pretend;
Pray, because I need Your Love;
You care for me, and know every path I tread.
There are things I can only share with You, because You love me more than any one else could;
Tears shed from pain, I know You will wipe my tears away.
Come morning I pray, Lord Jesus I live for You today;
I need Your Strength each day, for Your Grace is sufficient for me.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. (Psalm 139:2)
Even on rainy days, the Lord is near; Even in the pit, the Lord is there. He knows every details of our lives. He searches our heart and know our thoughts even before we could find the words to say. (Psalm 139:23)
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8A) The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever. (Psalm 121:7-8 NASB)
Keep faith. Keep going. Keep praying. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.
