Why is it so Hard

The enemy is always trying to distract me
And to my shame, too often it works
Then I find that I neglect my time with You
And I donít love You like You deserve
Lord, look on me with mercy
Because I canít seem to do
What You know Iím really wanting to do

Why is it so hard
Oh God, I should be
Moved by all You are
Somehow Iíve drifted so far
I want to draw near again
And find my way back to Your arms
So why is it so hard

I know that nothing else could ever be to me
Lord, everything I know that You are
So why do I chase after anything else
Only You can fill this empty heart
Lord, look on me with mercy
And pour out on me Your grace
I want to be someone who seeks Your face

Why is it so hard
Oh God, I should be
Moved by all You are
Somehow Iíve drifted so far
I want to draw near again
And find my way back to Your arms
So why is it so hard

God, I know that someday
This struggle in me will cease
And forever Iíll live
The way it always should be
Draw me with Your love
Remind me of this truth
The best moments of my life
Are the ones that I spend with You

Why is it so hard
Oh God, I should be
Moved by all You are
Somehow Iíve drifted so far
I want to draw near again
And find my way back to Your arms
So why is it so hard

Yes, what believer cannot relate to this. It is the whole Romans 7 theme put to song. I would love to hear it!
