When Going Isn’t Easy

girl at night running
Well I asked You Lord, to send me
But I held on with all my might
To every thing that I knew was safe
I wasn’t about to give up without a fight

How did this happen Lord
When did this happen Lord
Who or what challenged the way?
I came to You, as a lamb bereaved
And cried out, please let me stay
Stay in Your presence, stay in Your life
Be preserved for eternity
You had given me this blessed right I knew
So what did I do; but turn in flight

And I didn’t see it coming
I thought all was good and free
But what I failed to realize
Was that the enemy was watching me
And quietly, subliminally
The world’s treasures led me astray
Oh! I was still worshipping, praying
And had You in my thoughts
Yes faithfully, each and every day

And then at the appointed time
Oh! Please Lord, not again
Your Word did confront, convict
My heart was laid wide open
All idols were burnt, withdrawn
Hopelessness departed and Love, You replaced all
My prayer, dear heavenly Father
May this finally be the time of Thy will
Finally be the time, that my feet stay in step with Thine
