Standing Firm

Deep inside my soul
Hurt, rejection and betrayal flows
How can you say I didn’t love?
How can you make excuses for what you’ve done?

Open your eyes oh foolish one
Look at what you have done
Look at the destruction that’s all around
Not one whole heart can be found

Unscathed souls and shattered hearts
Friends torn apart
Children who are scarred
How can you have such disregard?

You call me a hypocrite because I struggle to forgive
All you did was take and you would never give
I gave all I could give and now I am drained
There is nothing left, Nothing good remains

While you were out doing what you would do
I would press in and I would pray through
The pain and hurt was great as I cried at Jesus’ feet
Then He lifted the burden and spoke His words of release

Some did not believe and said I was standing on shaky ground
But I have Jesus as my foundation and I know that it is sound
The Lord has spoken and told me “Stand Firm”
Through all that has happened He has confirmed

I fall short of the glory of God and I am not perfect in any way
But when I have my shortcomings it is Him I can go to today
For I will not apologize for what the Lord is trying to do
I will not apologize for standing up to you.
