I’m ordinary; I cannot see ahead, life is difficult
Friends fail and die, I am alone, unknown-inept-I’m low
We come we go, the pressure of life pulls our hearts away, I’m so easily distracted
What is it that I’m to do, is life really whistling in the dark?

My life is unchanging, one day much like the other, yet I want to know
John says Jesus is God’s everything; Lord I bend my knee to You, You are my everything
I’m sitting here, praying I ask, praying I surrender, praying I have confidence
Jesus is Lord, He is Lord of me, He is Lord of my situation; Praise God Jesus is in control

I believe in Jesus, He died for me, He is alive today and He loves me
I hope in You Jesus; I praise You Lord, this day is a challenge
Your Word encourages me, it is a lamp unto my feet; You define life for me
The world calls my name, cover me Lord with you grace, I want to live

Where you from? Have you won? Are you hurting?
Life humdrum? Victory none? Where you from?

Do you care? Can we go there? Thank you I’m done
Hurting, blue, discontinued, another anxious day. Do you care?

Help me? Tit for Tat. Mine for that
I need someone to listen to me. It’s a war in my soul. Help me?

Future home. A place without hope. A life with no glow.
Drugs shield me. Addiction my way out-death. Future home

Who can help? Who can heal? Nothing can fix me.
Jesus? Real? If you are there I’m willing. Who can help?

Change came. Heart claimed. A step. Another step.
Christ owns me. Hope. A sliver of light. Change came.

FEAR STALKS ME Fear stalks me; it chills my spine Everyone I know; thinks I’m fine I can’t tell them; the abuse and pain Nothing frees me; the world turns its back on me I don’t count; fear stalks me Fear stalks me; childhood a sad blur Heartless days; nights that wandered eternally What can […]

It isn’t hard to ignore the Lord, we feel so accomplished and complete Hurting all over, ignoring our defeats We maintain a sense of eternity, no rational reason for belief But we do believe, Jesus is our strength-HE is God’s everything Night rolls into day, time flies by-leaving our good intentions high and dry What […]
