When it all hit the fan, I decided to call out to you, God….
My choices took me to a deep, dark place in my life,
far from you.
But you still heard me when I prayed.
I tried to run from you – a very bad decision. And now you’re letting me pay the consequences as waves of darkness and regret wash over me.
I feel like you are very far away, dear God.
Even so, I am going to look for you, watch for you, call out to you.
I keep sinking….
into the cold,
sadness. This is where my choices have taken me.
But I know you are here, Lord God.
And you will lift me back up into your arms.
When I was lost, I remembered you and I turned back to you, God.
I’m not like those other people who idolize money, success or fame.
I praise you with a joyful heart, my God!
I am here to do your will. I will do what you have asked me to do.
