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 Aspergerâ€™s is affecting his brother.
My marriage is tried, as I struggle with mid-life,
And issues Iâ€™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 Iâ€™m dead and buried,
Before I can fully surrender my life.
My humanness finally stripped away,
Along with the worldâ€™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 Iâ€™m ready to understand.
