Why do we try to fix ourself We leave Holy Spirit upon a shelf We think we can do it on our own We never think to kneel before Gods throne He is the one who does healing deep He gives us peace..His peace to keep We don’t realise that we need to surrender It’s then we touch His heart gentle and tender Why do we try to heal ourself Why do we leave Him on a shelf With some it’s because of so much fear Of losing something they hold dear Bur Father knows..He knows best He says come to me I will give you rest Why struggle and strive to heal ourself Why leave Holy Spirit upon a shelf Some are ashamed they just want to hide All of the pain that has built up inside There are things in their past they don’t want others to see Although in their hearts they want to be free Some put on a front they try hard not to be real They don’t want others to know how they feel They don’t want others to think they have failed But if they surrendered they would see love prevail We do everything to fix ourself We leave Holy Spirit upon a shelf WHY??
