Many years ago, I was also a single woman waiting for “the one”. I have also been witness to single friends who are struggling with doubts about their self-esteem because no one seem to be interested in them. I ache with these single friends with their deep longings in their hearts. I always remember them during these times where everyone is celebrating togetherness as a couple, whether they are dating, engaged or married. In a world filled with mushy stuff this Valentine’s day, I lift up my single friends. This poem I’ve written is for you.
THE LORD HEARS YOUR CRY By Leah Albano The heavens are witnesses To your every heartache. The angels know Of every tear that you shed. The prayers of your heart, Hoping for someone to love you, Pleading that a man Will come to care for you. All these are etched In God's mind. Know that He has you In His heart. The Lord hears your cry. The Lord knows of your pain. He understands your lonelines. He feels your every doubt. Know that He is there To take away your every tear. Know that He is there To soothe away your every hurt. Look unto Him And trust in His goodness. Let this period of waiting Be a period of growing intimacy with Him. God alone, in His infinite faithfulness Shall meet that void you are feeling. He alone, is the Lover Whom you will ever need. Written: February 13, 2002 Photo: CTTO
