Today

Today Lord I don’t feel like a Christian as anger wells in my heart

I feel overwhelmed by the trials that befall me and I feel ripped apart

I want to hide from the world and just catch my breath

But fear and worry pursue me, will it be this way until  death

I Lie in the darkness alone with my pain

I cry out Your name Lord for mercy, I give You free reign

To sift and to mold me but please give me Your peace

From past choices that haunt me, please put my mind now at ease

For I need this reprieve

Help me to step out in faith and make a new start

To throw off the old man and put joy in my heart

Please give me eyes that see, what you see

And a mind that discerns, what Your will should be, played out by me

To shape a life that reflects all that you teach

That speaks to the lost and the lonely that seem out of reach

For it is not my life, but Your life, I was saved by your grace

And your love  is the fuel that keeps me running this race
