YOUR ASSISTANCE IN MY RESISTANCE

lifebuoy

I look around
Where, where am I going?
I can’t hear Your voice
I don’t seem to be growing
Oh! Lord, come rescue me
Inside my head I’m groaning
Fed up with merry-go-round existence
And You’re growing weary of my resistance??
Come rescue me

Son, daughter, oh! thou searching one
You’re rescued so stop looking back
Reach your hand a little further
I’m waiting, My heart is not slack
I’m waiting, there’s nothing I lack
No, there’s nothing, nothing I lack

Where are You Lord?
Your footsteps are hidden
I’m crying inside
And the tears are forbidden
Oh! Lord come rescue me
I’m trapped, and so guilt-ridden
How can I keep surviving the distance?
Only through Your love, power and assistance
Come rescue me

Son, daughter, oh! thou searching one
You’re rescued so stop looking back
Reach your hand a little further
I’m waiting, My heart is not slack
I’m waiting, there’s nothing I lack
No, there’s nothing, nothing I lack

So You are here?
Really, truly with me?
Lord, the cloud is gone
Enabling me to now see
Oh! Lord, You rescued me
And in You I can now be
More faithful in my love and persistence
And hear Your sweet voice at heaven’s insistence

At peace as the sun scatters all my fears
And new revelation dries all of my tears
You rescued me, You rescued me
Reached down, and I reached up
But only because, and only because
Your hand lifted mine to entwine with Yours
And turned my mourning into jubilant cheers
Turned my mourning into jubilant cheers

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV

It’s Raining His Tears

valentine8217s day water drops hearts vector

It’s raining
I hear His small, still voice
I’m crying for my nations
I’m crying, it’s My choice

I’m crying, you won’t listen
I’m crying, you’ve left My side
I’m crying, no one seems to care
Look, My arms are open wide

These tears are shed for many
The lost, the sick, those in pain
The rain, it is getting heavier
Don’t let My love, My love, wane

The rainbow has been hidden
These tears, I cry for you
I’m crying to cleanse all who are dying
I’m crying, let Me wash you anew

The falling drops, they lessen
But My tears will continue to fall
Fall until you grasp these words
Don’t hide your heart behind fear’s wall

Let these tears, let them take away
All that is holding you back
May they bring fresh love, peace and sweet joy
And in Me, fulfill all you lack
