My Redemption


My Redemption

I feel my faith backsliding into the cracks of nightfall

These eyes shadowed by an evil entity that tries to crawl

Into my comfort zone to close in on me with his attack

My heart is the prime target that’s struggling to fight back

I’m bloodstained thick with sin as I feel my legs collapse

I can’t run anymore so I hide in fear of what might perhaps

Be the end of everything I know and dreamed of receiving

This is not the time when we need to give up on believing

Know that nothing is impossible when God is on our side

Life spins us around like a whirlwind so problems will collide

Its so easy to forget about His grace when things get bad

But He loves us unconditionally and wants to be our dad

Its useless to fight with God when He is our source of hope

The path we take in life can leave us hanging on a rope

So turn your eyes toward God’s precious love that’s real

Your strength inside me allows me to know what I feel

Like peace and joy that shelters me from my surrounding

As trickery from the devil stirs trouble that is sounding

So I fear each footstep I take closer to this unopened door

I’m risking too much if I abandon my faith that can restore

I need to know Your watching me closely each step I walk

Whisper words of comfort into my ear as you humbly talk

For you are my only hope when this world lets me down

If I fail to follow Your holy ways then I will surely drown

I need Your lifeboat to help me stay afloat when out at sea

These strong waves force me underwater but I’ll find safety

For Your hands carry my burdened limbs to a dwelling place

Where I can find rest and thank you for Your saving grace

I desire to dance with angels in heaven where I will roam

When death brings me to this new place I can call my home

But as long as my vessel keeps on sailing in the mighty wind

I will continue to praise You for being my perfect friend

winterkou commented on My Redemption


he sis our shelter from the strom, the strength when we are weak, our eyes when we cant see, and the words when we cannot speak

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
