Day 17

Give Me A Glimpse

He looks like he’s sleeping
amid the tentacles and beeping of technology.
Oh, how I wanna be
the one hurt and unmoving in his place
so that he can run and race around.
Let me hold my little boy.
Let me kiss the hurt away.

Lord, give me a glimpse!
Let me see the silver lining.
Give me a glimpse.
Lord, forgive me if it seems I’m whining.
I know everything will work out for our good.
And I don’t have to understand.
I know I can trust Your plan.
But if You just could… If You just would,
Won’t You give me a glimpse?

He looks like he’s sleeping
amid the mourning and the weeping of his family.
Oh how I wanna see
his joy at meeting Jesus face to face.
Let me feel Your peace and grace abound
while You hold my little boy
and kiss every hurt away.

Lord, give me a glimpse!
Let me see the silver lining.
Give me a glimpse.
Lord, forgive me if it seems I’m whining.
I know everything will work out for our good.
And I don’t have to understand.
I know I can trust Your plan.
But if You just could… If You just would,
Won’t You give me a glimpse?

I never knew that one could hurt this much before.
Any moment he’ll come running through that door.
I see his clothes laid on the chair
and his paci over there,
his fingerprints upon my heart and the refrigerator…

Lord, give me a glimpse!
Let me see the silver lining.
Give me a glimpse.
Lord, forgive me if it seems I’m whining.
I know everything will work out for our good.
And I don’t have to understand.
I know I can trust Your plan.
But if You just could… If You just would,
Won’t You give me a glimpse?

Lord, I know there’ll be a day
when I’ll watch him run and play
and you’ll kiss all my hurts away…
but for now –
Won’t You give me a glimpse?

  2. Wow, that is a very heartfelt piece. I thank you for sharing it – my heart aches for you and your family and I really don’t know what to say except Knox was adorable and I’m sure ya’ll miss him.

  3. Oh Rachel,
    How my heart aches and breaks for you again and again. I wish it were not so, I wish this precious child was in your arms right now. May the Lord wrap you in His arms.

    “The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

    (Psalm 34: 18)
