Your goodness is greater than the grief.
The grief that makes us feel so weak.
Your strength is greater than the sorrow.
Sorrow that drains our hope for tomorrow.
Your love is greater than the loss.
Searing pain You know—Son hanging on the cross.
Your peace is greater than all the pieces broken.
Shattered lives, shards of dreams unspoken.
May we know these truths in the face of each unknown.
Your healing grace please do not postpone.
May we feel Your presence in the midst of all the mess.
Please lavish compassion, reveal Your nearness.
And may we trust You, Lord, with full-surrendered hearts,
because we know Your arms are the only place to fall,
the only place to start.
