Here I am one more night, wondering am I ever gonna get this right
Yes, Lord I cry out to you, I will do what you want me to do

Then it seems, at that very moment my life shatters and come unglued
I end up forgetting what I just prayed to you
I wonder to myself how will I ever get through

I know the truth, but find myself confused
Getting caught up in the things of the world
Laying in bed at night, telling myself I must choose

I shove God in the back of my mind, telling myself tomorrow I'll change
But the more I shove him away, the more my life turns upside down
I find myself on my knees, saying lord help me turn this life around

I want you Lord, I really do, but why do I turn from you?
I run from you, instead of running to you

I think It will be okay, but what if i dont have another day?
Lord I dont understand what I am doing
For you lord i should be pursuing

I know I've failed you many times, for I have failed myself
I just at the point of confusion, for I do not do what I want to do
I understand If I choose the world, what Id be loosing
For some reason though I just keep on going

With the pain I feel inside
Knowing I have pushed you aside

Lord, I just cant go on like this, you see the night crys
You see my heart screaming inside, even thought I act like im alright

I just want to live for you, but then I end up the same way
Why cant I surrender my all? and give it my life away?

I understand the calling I have, but the pain is just deep
All I do is find myself wanting to do is weep

So Lord here I am one more time
asking you to light the fire, make my heart want to shout you
and not doubt you

I have grown up in church, and I know you died for me
I just wish I could make my friends see

I know popularity is not worth it, so Lord I ask to give me clean hands
and a pure heart

Lord I know you will finish what you start!
Make me have the desire I once had
Lord..I need you bad!

Miranda: Thanks for sharing this. Such a lovely poem written from your heart. I can relate to your poem as I can feel the day to day struggles pulling at me, trying it's best to pull me away from the God (My Lord and Savior) that I know. But always remember, no matter what, we do belong to Him, always and forver.....that's why He is calling you. He loves you and He wants you to know that.
