The Real Secret

June 5, 2011

~
I say to the Lord
Preserve me, you’re my refuge
It is you alone
Who will provide happiness
You’ve given marvelous love
~~
God waited for me
To hit the bottom and come
I chose to surrender now
My judgment and pain
To the one who understands
Who became fully human
~
There’s no one but God
Who’ll show me the path of life
My heart rejoices
A decision based on hope
I arise from the ashes
~
The Lord gives counsel
He’s qualified to do that
At night he will direct me
I’ll keep him in sight
Even when I don’t feel him
Sometimes my feelings will lie
~
You’re my portion and my cup
You give me the living water
Your words make me your delight
I believe your word
~
I have found you are enough
You are the one who made me
And meets me with compassion
I need your mercy
~
You, Lord, are my lamp
God, you light up my darkness
You break through the barriers
Lord, you scale the wall
I accept you as my shield
I find my refuge in you

    I especially like: “It is You alone who will provide happiness.” I enjoyed the poem.
