Life Unwasted

For so long I stumbled through this life and nothing ever seemed right.
For so long I was lost in the darkness not knowing the beauty of the light.
I stumbled around as if my soul was wasted.
I vividly remember the day I could no longer take it.
On my knees I fell to the cold ground.
I felt so alone. I didnít think anyone was around.
Then I felt Your warm hand upon my shoulder and I looked up to see
You standing right there beside me.

And Your love came raining down.
You came pouring in without a sound.
I suddenly found myself drenched in a love so new
and for the first time I surrendered everything to You.

A sweeter love my heart had never tasted
and along with Your forgiveness came the opportunity to live life un-wasted.
Now Iím living this life un-wasted and true.
Iíll spend the rest of my life living un-wasted for You.

I used to stumble around
like I was walking on shaky ground.
My soul was lost in a wasted state
and my life felt like a big mistake.
I spent my time looking through clouded eyes wondering why I was here.
Now Iím seeing my life through Your eyes and for the first time,
everything seems so clear.
Iíve locked the door to my old life of darkness and sin
and Iím throwing away the key Ďcause Iím never opening that door,
NO, I will never live my life wasted again!
Lord, I still remember the day I let You come in.

And Your love came raining down.
You came pouring in without a sound.
I suddenly found myself drenched in a love so new
and for the first time I surrendered everything to You.

A sweeter love my heart had never tasted
and along with Your forgiveness came the opportunity to live life un-wasted.
Now Iím living this life un-wasted and true.
Iíll spend the rest of my life living un-wasted for You.

I will never let myself be wasted again.
Now Iím running in the good race and Iím in it to win!
I wonít go backwards, Iím pressing ahead towards my goal
and I will never again be a wasted soul.
Youíve created such an amazing change inside of me.
Youíve moved on into my heart and Youíve become my King.
My God, I owe to You everything!
I still remember when I let You come in.

And Your love came raining down.
You came pouring in without a sound.
I suddenly found myself drenched in a love so new
and for the first time I surrendered everything to You.

A sweeter love my heart had never tasted
and along with Your forgiveness came the opportunity to live life un-wasted.
Now Iím living this life un-wasted and true.
Iíll spend the rest of my life living un-wasted for You.

I absolutely love these lyrics. The flow is perfect, the message is deep yet simple to comprehend. I find myself wanting to add a melody to it! I will be reading this several times over when the well runs dry. Great work!
