I don't always understand.....

It's been a while since I've written a song... or a poem. It's been even longer since I've posted one publicly. So.. here goes.

I don't always understand
(In fact I rarely do),
But, Jesus, all you ask
Is that I put my trust in You.

And if I'm really honest,
and admit the truth
Oh, sometimes it's not that easy
because I'm tempted to

Follow my own plans
Force my way, Lay down demands. I don't
always understand, Lord
But I'm trying to...
Just lean on you.

Can You just give me the strength
to keep my eyes focused
I don't want to wander from your side
I've got good intentions
But my flesh is weak and my soul is
aching to get it right.

But on my own I'm nothing
Without You, I'll perish then
And what are my dreams if You have not
Wound Your blessings around them.....

I don't always understand
(In fact I rarely do),
But, Jesus, all you ask
Is that I put my trust in You.

And if I'm really honest,
and admit the truth
Oh, sometimes it's not that easy
because I'm tempted to

Question why, my LORD,
And try to convince You otherwise
I guess I forget my size
Seems I forgot
I serve a big big God

I may not get it,
And I may not understand,
But I serve a God who is mighty
And holds the universe in His hand

So, LORD though I be without wisdom
And from my eyes the future is veiled
I know that I serve a God who is good
Whose mercy never does fail.

But on my own I'm nothing
Without You, I'll perish then
And what are my dreams if You have not
Wound Your blessings around them........

I haven't been reading your blog for long, and I don't know you. But I've been praying for you and your family as I read (I found a link to your blog on Large Family Mothering-btw.) I've been thinking about this same issue myself and trying to keep my focus these days...just posted on the same topic right before reading your post in fact. May God bless your efforts!
