Gotta Keep Believing

Gotta keep believing,
Though so much contradicts.
People think that I’m a fool,
And devil plays his tricks.

People that I’m trusting
Seem to disappoint.
But maybe I mistakenly
Misplaced my frail hope?

Need a clearer vision
Of what God wants for me.
Don’t seem to know the answers
For questions bugging me.

The road keeps getting darker —
Here’s where true faith comes in.
I’m teet’ring on a tightrope,
Can’t seem to trust in Him.

How long to be in exile?
How long out in the cold?
Lord, help me to surrender,
To wait upon Your throne.

Have I lost Your vision,
Has pride put me in chains?
I’ll wait upon Your answer
And then be free again.

Am I disobeying?
Did I blindly fall?
I don’t have all the answers;
I’ll give it to You all.

Agony

Agony is all I feel
Until I get to You and see,
Until I let You get to me
And set me free.

Struggling, striving,
Ever hiding,
Not abiding,
Until surrender.

When I let myself let go,
When you live in me and grow,
When I let You set me free,
Is when I see.

I catch the glimpses from above,
I’m sometimes drowned within Your love,
But other times I lose the vision,
Have no focus; feel division.

I thank You for the battle won,
I thank You for Your Holy Son,
For Him who died upon a tree
And will complete good work in me.

The Light

On the mountain top I saw

A vision of a would-be world

Some people seemed like angels,

Beings of light-amazing;

Not God, but God-infused.

The world seemed to glow

And I wondered

If I looked different too.

God smiled at me,

And suddenly

I knew:

He loved me too.

I took the light down to the valley,

Hoping others would see.

My face did not glow like Moses;

How silly of me.

I must let Your light shine through;

If others do not see, let it be.

Let me not hide the light

Out of fear.

This  light, this fire

Burns within me.

I only need to fan the flames

By spending time with You.

No one can quench this fire;

Once lit, it burns forever.
