Lord, to many times now I seem to always lose my way,
Trying to make sure I am walking in Your light each day.
This is simply because as soon as I start feeling weak,
I seem to start to forget Your way is what I need to seek.
You see I get lost often in all the distractions that occur,
Then all the rights and wrongs in my life all start to blur.
Lord I need Your help to focus on always putting You first,
I know living my life without You would be nothing worst.
I wish after so many years of working hard seeking You,
That always keeping You first in life would be easy to do.
Now even the times when I know I should kneel and pray,
Living life seems to often keep me from following Your way.
I understand why it is so important now to read Your word,
Many people lie and distort Your truth as I have often heard.
The real reason why does not matter as their end goal is clear,
They desire to keep us all who believe in You in perpetual fear.
Lord, please give me the wisdom I need to serve you each day,
And the strength to share with others the joys of Your Son’s way.
Help me to never again give into temptations & the need to repent,
And to spread the news that Your free gift of Grace is Heaven sent!!
