Seventh Hour

 

 

 

So I start with three

simple verses

From the book of truth

Spoken by you

Taken to heart by men

~

Therefore, in order to keep

me from becoming conceited,

I was given a thorn in

my flesh, a messenger of

Satan, to torment me

~

Three times I pleaded with

the Lord to take it away from

me. But he said to me, My grace

is sufficient for you, for my power

is made perfect in weakness.

~

How is your power made

perfect in my weakness Lord

Do you know what I’ve been

through in my life thus far

~

Do you know the trials and

struggles that I face everyday

The hopes and dreams that

I have seen dashed to peices

on the ground

~

Late night conversation

with a friend

a brother in your name

I was a wreck

~

I told him I was in

danger of falling

back to old habits

old addictions

old ways of living

~

I don’t want to fall

I don’t want to go back

to what I used to be

How I used to live my life

Help me please

~

He looked right at me

Sadly shaking his head

pointed a finger at me

~

You’ve become conceited

in your clean living

Taking the credit for your

accomplishments

when you know full well

It wasn’t your doing

~

It was God’s doing

He took

your pain

bore your shame

Every insult that you’ve uttered

You uttered at him

~

Everytime you partook in your

addictions-

It was a slap in his face

not yours

~

Threw myself onto my face

Felt like I was pushed

by some unseen force

an unseen hand

~

Lord Almighty

I’m sorry

No more of this

running from you

doing things to spite you

To hurt you

to shame you

~

Take me Lord

Fit me in your plan

Bend me to your will

save me God

Even though I deserve

nothing

I humbly beg this of you.

~

I’m not worthy to be saved

Lord

Yet you saved me anyway

You take me back no matter what

You once said there is NOTHING

that I will ever do where you won’t

still love me, where you won’t still

take me back

~

So tonight I will pick up my cross

And follow you

Teach me Lord

Show me your mercy

Show me your Grace

Love me

~

Because I love you God
