I Fall Short

Itís really hard for me to express
For so long itís been concealed
But I really need to confess to you
Exactly how I feel

When I think of what I lack
In becoming more Christ-like
And think of the person I should be
It can tear me up inside

I often wonder if Iíd ever be
What you desire O Lord
When I compare myself to you
Thereís no doubt-I fall short

It seems so overwhelming Lord
With many things to overcome
Just to have your godly qualities
And the victory of your Son

It often seems beyond me Lord
And I fail every day
It hurts so much when I fall short
And stumble along the way

Hear my heart crying out to you
O Lord, please lift me up
Give me strength to carry on
When I have had enough

Fill me with your Holy Spirit
Afresh today my Lord
Guide me, teach me, and equip me
For what youíve called me for

I pray that even in my weakness
Iíll be of use to you
So others will see you in my life
And want to know you too

Itís at these times I need you more
When I feel I cannot face
Another day where I fail you
O Lord, I need your grace.

By M.S.Lowndes.
