A Simple Attempt

Let me attempt
to simplify why I won’t relent
why even if there’s no consent
my heart cant be changed or bent

See this life I live
not mine to take but mine to give
no rights to claim
no power in this world I hope to obtain
to live is Christ, to die is gain.

But, before I found understanding
my life in shambles, fading
in shame I was quickly degrading
in a hopeless waste-filled land I was wading

In my sin I was caught
but with a price I was bought
so in the truth I was taught
I stood and I fought.

Only to find
myself falling once more
I found myself in a downpour
confused, not sure
stuck without a plan or open door
with little faith I fell to the floor.

I cried and cried
poured out everything on my inside
I wondered why
why I was feeling so dry
why answers seemed to hide
if His peace again I would find.

But before hope is gone
He reminds me of the cross
how He came for the hopeless and the lost
my life surrendered the only cost.

So I lay down my pride,
my rights,
my will,
my life...
I take the nothing that I have
and follow His plan.

Everyday I choose
the lies I refuse
I pray to be used
for His glory, not abused
I pray for His Light
I pray to be made right
I pray during the night
to walk by faith and not by sight.

Now I’ve lost count
of all the times He came
rescued me again, and again
changing me, never to be the same
and never reframes
in giving me grace He bore in pain

Spiritual I.C.U
revived my soul and made me new
me, without a clue
Him showing me what is true
I decided my obedience was long overdue.

Now, I live, I move
In Him I have my being
By faith I am seeing
that His love is redeeming
Everyday I’m believing
that new mercy I’m receiving
No longer am I bleeding
I received His healing
Now my hearts revealing
the passion I’ve been concealing
because fear no longer leads me

PERFECT LOVE SET ME FREE
