The Sea of Discontent

The Sea of Discontent

There is this space between us
It has been growing for a while
It started off so small
And now stretches on for miles.

I donít know what Iíve done
I donít know what to say
To lessen this space between us
To make it go away

The void speaks of crime
The emptiness cries out offense
The desolation resembles loneliness
None of it makes sense

I have this awful feeling
That there is nothing I can do
That the emptiness I am feeling
Has more to do with you

I feel you have wandered off
Into a sea of discontent
Refusing to be comforted
Determined to be upset

I have swam that sea myself
Not so long ago
Others stood on the shore then
And prayed I would not go

I know what took me out there
Into waters so dark and deep
With winds so high and terrible
My mind could hardly think

I know what kept me there
When safety was ashore
I know why I refused
The Lordís comfort and support

I wanted what I wanted
I wanted what I could not have
I thought He was withholding
My heart was just so mad

I donít know why you are there
What took you off the shore
I donít know what you want
Or why your heart is sore

I can only do what others did
And pray for a dear friend
That you would get tired of being adrift
And turn your heart back to Him

He understands the pain you feel
He may even have allowed it in
But pain that comes from his hand
Always brings healing in the end

I pray that you will look up and see
In the midst of the dark whirlwind
That God is not a harsh unfeeling master
He is your closest most caring friend.

He knows the wound that drove you
He knows the pain you hide
He knows the anger your feeling
He knows the fears of your mind

He knows your weakest link
And wants to carry it all
But first you must let go
Of the bitterness and the gall

The distance between us looks so wide
It is truly bigger than you or me
But God can breach any gulf
There is no place he canít reach

I pray that you will call to him
And tell him what is wrong
I pray that you will grab hold of him
Cause youíve been gone too long.

I pray you will come back soon
That you will let his comfort in
I pray for a healing journey
That brings you home again.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
