Trust Your Love

Breadcrumb Navigation

I asked You to tell me You love me.
I wanted Your hand on my shoulder.
To walk along, together, forever,
You telling me I have enough.
I wanted You to show me Your love.

I sat on my couch,
Lonely and scared,
Biting my nails;
Said, “Please, show me Your love.”

I wanted to spend the rest of my days
Walking in Your warm embrace.
Fully alive, being changed.
I wanted you to show me a miracle,
And you did.

I said, “Give me a friend.”
But I didn’t realize
I was still seeing with blind eyes.
It didn’t really help to only know I was blind.

Every time, You found what was lost inside.
I still didn’t see I was blind.
And now, You ask me to trust You.

When I’m sitting all alone in the cold;
When what You’ve given, You take away;
When the silence is the only voice I know;
I have memories of faith.
When You asked me to trust You.

You took my hand, wiped my tears.
Said, “Someday, you’ll just have to know it.”
Said, “When you can’t feel me here,
Just trust that I love you.
Just trust I’m enough.
With the silence above you,
When every part of you is lost,
Remember you’re found.”

You say,
“Remember when I healed your wounds.
And I softened the bruise.
And I told you,
‘One day, you’ll just have to trust.
Never forget that you have enough
Because I am enough for you.’”

Today, the light has grown dim;
The quiet begins.
I’ll trust that You love me.
You don’t have to say it out loud.
I’ll trust that You love me.
But now I ask how?

I have to remember everything You did,
Every word that You said,
And just trust again.

I will sing myself a lullaby.
I will call Your name Father.
I will know You hear me when I cry.
I will learn not to run to another.

Just wait in the silence and trust that You love me.
Just wait in the silence and trust that You love me.

  1. Jason, nice , sensitive poem. Love of God is an important truth we must all trust and receive. I’ve also been thinking a lot about the Holiness of God and how that must affect and change us too. One small correction: I think you meant “wiped” and not whipped “ my tears.

  2. This morning’s poem is very touching, Jason. You share a very common human emotion, loneliness. And you also share the truth that we are, who trust in the the Living God, are truly never alone. I pray that our gracious Heavenly Father show you how very near he truly is! You are so,so precious to him, more than one can fathom, but it’s true.
    May his grace and peace abound in you!

  3. Oh Jason ! How beautiful it is to trust in him, we all need his help and we can count on that he is in and with us ?
    Miss you ?

  4. “I will sing myself a lullaby.
    I will call Your name Father.
    I will know You hear me when I cry.
    I will learn not to run to another.”
    Ahhh so good Jason!
    In Christ, Kassy

  5. Well said, Jason. Living in the certainty of Christ’s love for us when our perception of the evidence is clouded honors and magnifies the Lord. May your confidence in him never falter.

  6. Thank you, Jason. A very common feeling that comes when we are not dwelling in His presence! You express it very well. Continue to call us to look up.
