Second Chance

Stagnation is death, and I didn’t want to die… My life was slowly turning into nothing and I knew the reason why… I cried, lost finally able to see… That dark cloud that consistently hovered over me…. Humbled and defeated, I began to cry and pray… Dear Lord… this is Faizah… I’ve lost my way… I’m drowning in this life, Love I never found… This world it has never been good to me… and now in sorrow I drown… If you still want me, I’m hoping that you could… Lead me into all things of you because in them there is good… That dark cloud said, why should you help me now? Cause many times before you’ve tried to show me how… How to be loved and live a life under your grace… But each and every time, I turned from seeking your face… This time Lord, I promise it will be different… I realize without you as my Guide, I could never go the true distance… If you could just direct my steps and show me that narrow path… This time I’ll stay on it, no matter how long the tribulations last… All of a sudden from a distance I hear… A muzzled voice that began to come clear… This is the Lord thy God, your prayer I have heard… To begin to follow me you must submit to my Word… Through all of this darkness, just follow my light… I’m glad to have you back, proud that you have given up the fight… The fight of the flesh you will never win… The only way to victory would be to die to the flesh then begin… Begin to live in the Spirit… and be made new in this life… Grow up and mature in my Word, to continually reach new heights… I am the Lord your Shepherd and you will soon come to see… You were one of my lost sheep who is now found, and through me you are set free… Free to be loved, receive blessing unmeasured… Basking in the Will of our Father brings the greatest pleasures… So from this point on, don’t ever look back… Continue moving forward on my narrow path, and you will never lack… Lack love, lack comfort, lack any of your needs… Because all things that were made, if made at all, were made by ME… In response to you Lord, I would like to say… I’m so thankful for this second chance that you have given me on this day...
