Someone recently asked me; “how are you?”
I said, “fine.” But this person never knew.
I wasn’t doing fine… Not one single chance.
He didn’t know my life’s circumstance…
Little did he know of the many problems inside.
For so long, this was something I wanted to hide!
I’ve had so many problems and struggles within.
I don’t know where to start. Or where to begin!
I once thought I had “the whole world by the tail.”
Now, no matter what I tried …
I simply failed!
My job and family began to disappear all around me!
The emptiness and loneliness
seemed to surround me!
It’s hard to put it into words. And difficult to explain..
It seems like tomorrow, it will all be the same!
I come to YOU Jesus! I have no one else to turn to!
I ask for your help now! I disparately need you!
You know my problems, and sins of the past...
Will you love and have mercy on me? Is what I ask!
I’m thankful to you Jesus! And the peace you bring!
I give to you my whole life, and everything!
I could never fool you! You know me inside and out!
I know now, that you are what true life is all about!
I want to invite you in! As my lord and guest..
I know you’ll take care of me,
and clean up “the mess.”
You’re the only one I can trust in my darkest hour!
My life shall be changed!
by your blood cleansing power!
