A letter. I walk this lonely road, Cold and tired, Hungry for God. And I am alone. And I hope for a savior, To take me from this place, And be my shelter from the storm. And I listen. As the strong gust blows, I fold my hands and bow my head, Praying, praying, And I try to trust in Him. But I fail, and fall short, And my doubt intercedes. I weep bitterly, And I do not sleep. Still the Lord God hears my cry, And as I knock, and seek, and ask, He makes good on His word. And He reaches out to me. But I push away what I do not know, What I fear, what I do not understand, For His power and glory are beyond measure. And I am still lonely. I embrace my sins again, Driven back to the Devil, By my own lack of faith. And I ignore Him. But He does not give up on me, And he reminds me of this, No matter where I go. And I am at the lowest place. This goes on, and on, And as sinful as I am, The Lord God is patient, And He persists. And as I can ignore Him no longer, I confess my sins to the Lord, And plead for His forgiveness, And I am undeserving of it. And I shed a tear. For who can overlook these trangressions? Yet in his sight I am born again. And by his grace I am cleansed. His voice calls out to me in the wilderness, And I cling to His Word, For it keeps me on His path. And through his mercy, I am renewed. And I cry out for Jesus, Praying that I might be saved, And rejoice in His perfect ways. And I am desperate. By His sure will, He reaches out to me, Offering His ever-helping hand, Taking me into His warm embrace. And I know that it will be all right. And I am still cold, and tired, But no longer alone, for if our God is with us, Who can be against us? And I have faith. I stand here today a sinner, yea, And I was one yesterday, And will be tommorow too, But in Christ Jesus I am anew. And I am complete. ---------------------------------------------- Original Composition © CFS user Azarius, 2008. All Rights Reserved.
