Your Love Once More

I never wrote the story
I never told the tale
I'm just a boy inside the world
You made in six days
I've never had the power
I've never had the strength
Yet with You I've found it all
So was I really blind to fate?
Your hand is on my shoulder
Your word is in my ear
Your love is in my heart
How could I never see it?
Oh I was blind so long ago
Some things I couldn't see
I saw the things I wanted
Yet my eyes ignored You
Perhaps I was afraid of You
Perhaps I was ashamed
I've never been proud of who I was
But it mattered all the same
I do not want the hand outs
I do not want the joy
I only want to hear the words
The words I know to feel
So could You, Father, say them now?
And ease the pain I feel?
Say You love me one more time
So my mind will believe my heart
I've never been a perfect son
I've never been at ease
I've always been a source of stress
Or a weight upon Your knees
So show me love I know You feel
And let me feel Your touch
Let me hear the words I read
And want to hear so much

All I Ever Need

Lord, I feel Your presence
So will You touch my spirit tonight?
Let me feel Your holy strength
As I face my demons this night
I know Your strength is unending
And I'll need it in the depths of despair
As darkness descends upon my being
And the devil destroys my repair
So touch my spirit tonight Lord
And give me the courage to proceed
For You are one within me
And You are all I ever need

If God made you imperfect, James, it was purely and simply so that he'd have you here to entertain him in troubled times...

I cried. I really cried. I'm not kidding.

Keep your faith strong. He'll always be there to hold you up.
