He sits over me…

He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver. Malachi 3:3

This poem was given to me on October 29, 2006. It was during an extremely harsh and fiery season in my own personal life that God gave me the sweetest treasure to cling to, along with His eternal promises and encouragement to continue to trust Him no matter what! God’s whispers of love and constant reassurance created these comforting words in my anguished heart.  May they deeply comfort your soul as well!

He sits over me keeping watch through my day.

God sits over me keeping watch!

He surrounds me with mercy each step of the way,

And attends me when humbly I pray,

He responds to me without delay…

Assures me that all is ok!

He sits over me keeping watch through the night.

God sits over me keeping watch!

Produces His fire of heavenly light,

Down deep in my heart, clarifies my poor sight.

Reveals His grand glory, so bright…

In His presence I feel pure delight!

He sits over me keeping watch through the storm.

God sits over me keeping watch!

Hides me beneath His embraces so warm

When sorrows appear, all at once, in a swarm!

He offers me faith as to Him I conform.

And hovers so near giving peace in the storm…

He sits over me keeping watch when I’m weak.

God sits over me keeping watch!

 He holds me and shows me His power so meek.

As I sob out the sadness I can’t even speak!

Gives me strength when my life is so bleak,

Sweet contentment each day of the week!

He sits over me keeping watch through the fright.

God sits over me keeping watch!

Consoles me so calmly with power and might,

Assures me each day that this fight is His fight!

He anchors me, guides with His Light.

So securely propels me in flight!

He sits over me keeping watch ore’ my ways.

God sits over me keeping watch!

He hems me within when the fog and the haze

Covers me over and darkens my days.

Fills me with joy and with praise…

With His wonderful glorious praise!
