At troubled times

We've all been there, at our witts end and last hope. Times when you feel you can't go on. As your ready to fall, kneel before our god! Bend down and ask for strength and it shall be provided! Only he can save us!

Bent down
Knee?s on the ground
Hands straight in the air
Tears in my eyes
But they?re not cries
To you above I stare.

Thank you so,
More than you know
You can see my heart.
I turned away
Walked astray,
And made a brand new start.

Faith was there,
Heart was bare.
Struggle, I will no more.
Now I see,
You worked through me.
I will open the door.

So comforting,
In knowing,
You, Lord led my life.
Not my own,
Or, People I?ve known,
You alone suffice.

How is it before?
I saw no more,
Then troubles in my path?
Now I feel
Just how real
You are in your wrath.

No greater chance
In a simple glance
Has been given to me.
I will NOT betray
The chance given yesterday
But look towards tomorrow to be free.

God Bless...
