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.
