Never in Vain

This poem is mostly the story of what I went through and learned between the ages of 12 and 14. By Yeshua’s great grace, I am here to proclaim that I never sought Him in vain.


You often cry
And wonder why
He seems so far away
You wonder if He truly cares
And hears you when you pray

You know you should
Believe He’s good
But you can’t see His hand
It’s hard to cling to joy and hope
When you don’t understand

But never fear
For yet He’s near
His promise will remain
“I haven’t told the seed of Jacob
‘Seek for me in vain.'”

When life is dim
You search for Him
Amidst the clouds of doubt
You know He has the answers that
Can say what life’s about

But when you fail
To see the trail
That leads you to His throne
You fear that searching won’t avail
You feel that you’re alone

But lift your head
And never dread
He’ll guide you through the rain
He hasn’t told the seed of Jacob
“Seek for me in vain.”

When all you know
Is dole and woe
And you can barely see
You know you need to hear His voice
And He can set you free

To hear His voice
Becomes your choice
But how you do not know
Then seek His face and trust in Him
His words to you He’ll show

And when you’ve heard
His precious word–
What peace amidst the pain!
He hasn’t told the seed of Jacob
“Seek for me in vain.”

He knows our fears
He sees our tears
He saves us from alarms
And though He sometimes lets us fall
We fall into His arms

Despite our flaws
He gives a cause
To all that we endured
He didn’t speak in secret depths
We hear our Savior’s word

And when the years
Of pain and tears
Have brought you strength and gain
You’ll say in love to Yah above
“I never sought in vain.”


For thus says Yehovah, Creator of the heavens–He is the Elohim, Former of the earth, and its Maker: “I am Yehovah, and there is none other. I have not spoken in secret, in the dark place of the earth. I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek me in vain.'”
Turn to me and be saved, all ends of the earth, for I am El, and there is none other.
–Isaiah 45:18,19,+22

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
–Romans 8:28

Hear Yehovah, and have compassion on me! Yehovah, be a help for me! You have turned my mourning to dancing. You have loosed my sackcloth and made me hear gladness, so that my glory will sing praise to you, and not be silent. Yehovah, my Elohim, I will thank you forever.
–Psalm 30:11-13

I am a nineteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
