Can you see the change in me, Lord?
I pray daily that you can
Others here on earth
Just might not understand

I’m no longer who I was, Lord
No more a slave to sin
For now you are my Father
I’ve secured the greatest win

As I travel down this road, Lord
I am asking for your help
It’s been a little difficult
Given the hand that we’ve been dealt

Sarah continues to fight, Lord
And my job has slipped away
Still we come to know you daily
And believe we’ll be okay

We need to set an example, Lord
Our children deserve to know
That no matter what happens in this life
Into our Father’s arms we’ll go

I hope we’ll make you proud, Lord
Others say they’ve been inspired
But where we stand from day to day
We are simply very tired

I’m as steadfast as I can be, Lord
And I hope you’ll understand
I need some extra love now
And your ever guiding hand

Our eyes are fixed on you, Lord
We’re down on bended knee
You’ll bring us through the fire
As the world will surely see

Your poem drew me in and kept me watching as the person praying as he pressed into the Lord despite and because of the circumstances.

Wonderful prayer of submission.

The topic of 'bitter' and 'sweet' is just barely here, just sort of implied.

I enjoyed reading this, and I so appreciate this poet's heart!

I just wonder who sarah is who is introduced half way through?
Mildred Sheldon06/07/09
I agree with Jan. This is a wonderful prayer of submission. God is so good and no matter what comes He carries us through. God bless
