When struggles are present
Will I remember Your name?
Do I focus on all that eludes
Or trust with unwavering faith?
When tears are shed
And fear rears its head,
Do I foster those thoughts
Or believe You instead?
A little discomfort may be good for the soul
To make me think and help me grow.
But, will I continue to walk in Your ways
Or be tempted by sin and worldly games?
Mistakes will be made, many lessons learned
As I fight to do it on my own accord.
May I realize then MY works are forlorn
For, the fruits of the spirit are heavens reward!
So I pray, I plead, then I beg no more
My faith in You has been restored.
To walk in the flesh, I cannot win
All alone I am carnal sin.
Forgive my lapse in faith
I cling to You my saving grace!
