Understanding

Lord I know how much you love me because you allowed me to endure
All the pain and heartache on my journey home to you

At first I couldn't bare it and alone I thought I was
Unaware that you kept watch on my soul from up above

How painful it must have been for you, the times I was in dark dispair
For I thought I'd been abandon,I didn't know that you were there

Tortured by my lonliness and feelings of being misunderstood
I searched for you everwhere the only way I knew I could

I cried out to you in my prayers at night while tears stained my cheeks
I listened for you desperately in every sermon that was preached

I searched for you earnestly in your written Word,whose wisdom help me see
I felt you in all the faces that spoke your grace to me

I sought you in creation that was the backdrop for my fight
I hung on to the hope, through you,I could live a better life

And because you are a faithful Lord, slowly it became clear to me
That hurt,pain, rejection is the only way that I would see

In order to really know you I would have to travel where you walked
This is the only way to truly know your love and understand how much it cost

I know I'll never ever carry the burden that you bore
But having just a taste of it has made me love you more
