Standing the Gap
I am on a mission from my God as I surrender my will and my time.
My place is with those with a need of someone to help them
As they battle the forces of evil or just the forces of man.
I lend my shoulder to you, as I am standing in the gap.
God needs human form to help with man's plight each day.
He seeks out those who are willing to allow His mercy to flow through.
He seeks human vessels to contain His love and take it to others.
Where there is the need I desire to be standing in the gap.
Mankind needs others to help protect themselves during the battles;
For an individual cannot be everywhere, as there are gaps in his defenses.
God in His mercy sends those who are willing to assist His warriors;
As I am here to fight with you as I am standing in the gap.
God gives to all who asks and enables all who surrender.
The help comes from unusual places sometimes as the gaps are filled.
With the power of 300 versus the millions, we can all stand without fear;
For God is within me as I am standing in the gap.
Written for Mary Jo. I am standing with you for your family.
