"My Secret"

No one else knows my secret,
But I'll tell you.

I may look like a big girl,
Tough, capable, grown-up,
All the thing we wanted
To become when we were ten years old.
But inside, I am still a scared little girl
When the lights go out
And I am alone with my nightmares,
My fears and
My softly falling tears.

But I still look like a big girl,
Tough, capable, grown-up.
So I can't run to Mom,
Throw open her bedroom door,
And climb under her covers.
So I lie in my bed
And wait for the sun to
Peep over my window sill.

But I do not wait alone.

Jesus knows my secret.
He knows I am a baby lamb in sheep's clothing,
And I need the comforting presence
Of my Shepherd.

So He comes to me.
And when my flesh and heart fail me,
He catches me as I fall.
When my anxious thoughts overwhlem me,
His consolations give me rest.

I am still a little lamb in sheep's clothing,
But my good Shepherd watches over me
By night and by day.
And any troubles that assail me in the night
Cannot overcome the power of my Shepherd's might.
And now YOU know my secret...

"For He gives to His beloved even in her sleep."-Psalm 127:2

"They cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distresses. He caused the storm to be still, so that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet, so He guied them to their desired haven."-Psalm 107:13

Did you write this? It is really good. It reminds me of some scripture that I have been looking at. Psalm 118:5

5 In my anguish I cried to the LORD,and he answered by setting me free.
its similar idea to Psalm 107:13 "in my anguish" means in my battle or time of trouble when I looked it up in hebrew and "setting me free." has so many meanings it was unreal, but the one that stuck out and they use this in some translations it means a vast big place. So when we cry out to God he answers us by bringing us into him. There the storms are quiet and the troubles are hushed. i love the poem keep it up.
