A Better Way

Somedays when life has me all beat up
And drives me to my knees
And theres no one to console me
I find comfort, Lord, in thee

You say you'll never leave me,
And by faith alone i believe
That you will deliver me from madness
Before i become decieved

The lie of Satan says im worth nothing
A loser with no hope at all 
But God says im a child of the kingdom
And on him i choose to call

Theres been times ive wandered on my own
Just to have things my own way
And God just smiles and lets me go,
Knowing i'll come back to him someday

So when life decides to beat on me
And i suffer the enemies ploys
I know my God has greater for me
So now i count it all as joy

    You are so right. God never leaves us. We are the ones that stray. Thanks for sharing this with us. Lucilla

    Ohh, so love it. He is so GRAND, isn't he? He is so merciful even when we strayed away from Him, He still called us back. Awesome write, Carl. Have a great New Year!
