When I asked for You to enter my heart,
I thought I had surrendered all.
It wasn't long before I forgot You were there,
And on Your name, once again, I'd call.
Trials came, as well as my children,
On my knees, I gave these worries to You.
When all seemed well, I thought "I can handle this!"
Then felt helplessness in my heart, anew.
Teenage years stretched me to the limit,
I wasn't sure if I was going to make it.
Bad choices were made over and over again,
I cried, "Here Lord, I just can't take it!"
No wedding took place, but a Grandma I am.
My daughter, my heart is broken.
I have placed their lives in Your mighty hands,
And hope and pray, with words unspoken.
My oldest son, proudly serving his country,
While Asperger’s is affecting his brother.
My marriage is tried, as I struggle with mid-life,
And issues I’ve had with my mother.
I have given these woes, to You dear Lord,
So many times, then I take them back.
I need to surrender them, once and for all, to You,
Ashamed, knowing it is faith, I lack.
It may not be until I’m dead and buried,
Before I can fully surrender my life.
My humanness finally stripped away,
Along with the world’s pain and strife.
Forgive me Father, for my unbelief,
I know You have it all safely in hand.
Give me strength for today, hope for tomorrow,
Until I’m ready to understand.
