© Bob Barra, 7-2-07

Nothingís too hard for my God,
Not even my foolish head;
If He can raise up Jesus,
He can resurrect this dead;

He invites, while I resist
He loves; while I fight;
He gives a hand; I a fist;
I am wrong; He is right;

But 15 years of wrestling,
Soon becomes a dance;
After all this arguing,
We still have a romance;

These 15 years of wrestling
Have wiped out many fears;
Itís Him I find Iím loving,
Desiring 15 more years

He drives me, oh so crazy,
But I frustrate Him so;
His patience amazes me;
He buffs me Ďtill I glow;

If you could see the pity,
Deep behind His love;
Then youíd know the mercy
By which Iím borne above;

He attends my every need,
While Him Iím ignoring;
Thatís when He makes my week,
So very far from boring;
But I wouldnít have it
Any other way, my friend;
Him and I plan to see this
To the very end.


Note: July 3rd, 1992, about 2pm, I surrendered my life to my Lord Jesus Christ, ending an age of pointless living and alcoholism. Little did I know what I was in for.

But the Lord has brought me through it all to this time 15 years later. What is the one thing I have learned in this walk?

It's this: I can't trust me. But I can trust Him. I fail me, but He never fails.

What's funny is how people are congratulating me for doing something that is not typical of a human being. No one seeks after God, as it says in my Bible. I didn't plan to get saved; it was on HIS schedule, not mine. If I was the Lord I wouldn't pursue someone like me.

And I only stay with Him, because He's far better than anything else I could have known or found. Because of Him, when I die, I know I'm going to heaven.

God bless!
