Stuggling

I wonder if you have ever had a day like me
Where you just can not seem to simply see
The reason why things are this way in our reality
The corruption, greed, scandal, and utter insanity
Never a world where all is the way we want it to be
Honesty rewarded, goodness the norm, living happy and free

I am struggling dear Lord
Though this you already know
I pray for your direction
Show me the way to go

Turn on the news to view that of today
No longer shocking, I have come to expect it this way
People are filled with constant anger and dismay
I sometimes can not find encouraging words to say
Even leaders of the church have begun to stray
No longer walking their path in a godly way

I'm struggling dear Lord
With the swinging to and fro
Show me which direction
You would have me to go

I lay my head down upon the arrival of night
My dreams sometimes seem to be a ghastly fright
Leftover are the daily events in my minds sight
Failure and frustration are my literal birthright
Seldom do I know the feeling of pure delight
Though I do posses a God led insight

Forgive me dear Lord
For my sins you already know
Guide me in the direction
You have planned for me to go

This brought a tear to my eye, particularly in that third stanza. I felt the struggle and the pain in your words. Very honest and very vulnerable piece of writing. With love, Deb
