Lord, What About Me?

I pray, I fast, I do all I know to do.
Yet it seems my prayers to God just arenít getting through.
I read and study, I know Godís Word well.
Yet my storms rage on, I just canít seem to prevail.

All around me I see others being healed and set free.
And with an earnest heart I pray to God, Lord what about me?
Iíve faithfully served in the church, and Iíve diligently sewn my seeds.
But the blessings pass me by, Lord what about me?

I try to obey your commands, Your heart I want to please.
But my situation stays the same, Lord what about me?
I trust in You with all my heart, and in Your Word I do believe.
But it seems that despite all I do, You have forgotten me....
...............................................................

Iíve not forgotten the things you do, I know your deeds quite well.
But when Iíve put your heart to the test, you always seemed to fail.
But Lord! No wait my child, youíve already plead your case.
Letís take a deeper look inside, reality, itís time you face.

You give only what you want to give, never more and sometimes less
I gave my life so you could live, why canít you give me your best?
You claim to be rooted and grounded; you say you trust in my Word.
Yet when a storm comes your way, youíre fearful and youíre worried.

Yes, you ask me for guidance, you say Lord order my steps.
But you never really let me lead, youĎre always trying to help.
I ask that you love one another, and forgive them as I forgave you.
But you hold bitterness in your heart, for the wrongs done against you.

You said to me ďThy will be doneĒ when I revealed my plans for you.
But your own agenda you have set, you do what you want to do.
See child of mine, whom I love so dear, I have not forgotten about you.
Just remember it is your heart that matters most, not the deeds you do.
...............................................................

Lord, now I see why my blessings have been stalled.
My hands were busy doing ďGodís WorkĒ, but my heart never answered Your call.
And now I ask that very same question, but a different answer I seek.
Show me myself, tell me please, Lord, What about me?
