Jesus Carried Me when I Lost My Way
Praise You In This Storm - Casting Crowns
Do I dare to remember better things, do I dare to see all that I have lost?
I still remember when we were walking along the beach. We talked about better days before I was sifted like silver dross
The sun shone through the darkness of my soul as the sparkling flickers the pain that strangled my fear, I failed to see my worth
Life hurts when you find betrayal killed the light within you and it leads one to rage like a caged animal- free with the way to freedom
But lost with no mercy in sight, yet I refuse to turn away from the one I can count on with His eternal kingdom insight
How did you know when my heart shattered and all my trust with it and yet, I was on the brink of death?
You knew me better than I knew myself and loved me waiting for me to calm the seas in which you command
Where I was lost in my sins - Not knowing you had found me; through all the storms that had consumed the darkest seas
I look across the ocean; my foot slips so deep into the sand
I tried to catch myself; tried to steer away from hates no-where land
My heart aches; I don't know what else to do; I feel that I have died
Only to look over my shoulder; meeting the love I have found in Your eyes…
No other love could I have imagined, no greater love than this
A love so pure; It had been so long since I felt God's bliss
I had lost all that I had thought I had found; tried to keep it as is was
So many years together; so much I didn't know; I forgot about YOUR love
In times of trouble, in times such as this when my soul thirst for heaven’s kiss
My heart feels so much joy; it just beats deep inside my chest
I seem to falter; seem to not comprehend
That when I was alone; YOU had found ME again and again
My family, they have found me too; only to fill my heart with love
I cast the dark shadows as far away; so that I may not just walk, but run
Into YOUR arms, to delight in your sweet embrace
As Jesus takes my hand and walks me towards the light; to remind me of Your sweet Grace
He carried me over such troubled times; with my Lord's eternal love
Through HIM and only HIM... His love is unconditional; kissed by the Heaven's above...
"Let me paint you a picture - a picture with words"
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of writing poetry!
I praise the Lord for the gift of writing from my heart in hope of touching your hearts and bring the joy of beautiful memories past and future.
And most of all in sharing my love of Christ Jesus with the world- Amen— Donna Rayne
