Where Would I Be?  Had I Not Known…

Now I have faith, hope, and love to be shown…

And the WORD of HIS Way, Truth, and Life as seeds to be sown…

To walk the straight and narrow until Heaven’s my home…

 

Had to lose myself so weak

To find out who I’m meant to be in HIM set free

 

Had to fall into insanity

To regain a sound mind who has HIS peace opposite of vanity

 

Had to die to selfishness then to self brevity

To arise again who knows HIS reality

 

Had to wander on my own

To learn by faith going HIS Way I’m not alone

 

Had to cast my cares and anxieties upon HIM ongoing interrupt

To endure and persevere with hope for HIS grace, mercy, and compassion showing up

 

Had to seek HIM in the darkness with so much doubt

To trust in HIM as the Light who leads the way out

 

Had to face the giant of fear

To receive HIS love when near until fear would disappear

 

Have to share my testimony no longer lost in sin and lonely

To make JESUS known my destiny -made stronger in HIM only

Have you ever felt so alone

Into your face biting sand wind blown

Walking in the desert bemoan

Broad ways though the direction seems wrong

Life lost so weak, all but strong

Where is the straight and narrow road shown

Into the oasis at dawn to bring calm 

To sit below palm fronds with needed ration

 

Have you ever felt so alone

Above vultures circling drones

Wandering in the wilderness unknown

Repetitive circles deems long

Life tossed so bleak, all but gone

Where is the straight and narrow toward home

Into the Promise land drawn to dream beyond 

Relit to go balm bonds with entreated compassion

 

Have you ever felt so alone

Want to find your place that is your very own

Struggling through the years to have grown

Life embossed so unique, all but belong

Separate even when among HIS throng

Where is the straight and narrow will to be known

Into HIS heart as a new song to sing along 

With no qualm responds with heeded passion

 

No one knows tomorrow

Except GOD who sees the arrow

Shot through where it will go

Into the straight and narrow

Fade in velocity beyond the bow

Sun down on the horizon below

 

Find me again and pick me up from below

Take me in YOUR Mighty Right hand set in YOUR bow

Take aim into a future and hope along the straight and narrow

Pull me back; shoot me through into YOUR true and proven will let go

YOUR eyes ever on me as one of YOUR chosen few arrows

With vision to see my destiny released into YOUR perfect tomorrow

 

All trust in YOU alone past daydreams in flight

Call thrust into hone past nightmares in sight

Wall bust through continue fast forward in Spirit ignite

Install gust renew strength propel into victory above in my battles YOU fight

Enthrall stardust breakthrough to reflect YOU with insight

Haul robust, true Words reveal trajectory how to make it in this life prove right

 

Haul seed as a sower into hearts grow HIS Words that build a life upon the Rock just right

Enthrall as a shooting star however brief the journey reflect HIM with insight

Install fresh wind that strengthens in HIS grace and mercy grants victory for you HE will always fight

Wall broken down become one with JESUS and the FATHER makes home inside by the Spirit ignite

Call beckons deeper faith within the heart overflowing the soul past nightmares becoming sight

All desires of our hearts in daydreams flight granted when in HIM alone wholly delight

 

 

Meant to be found in the mystery

Went forth from birth until now history

Seek to know HIS will to follow wholeheartedly go

Weak to HIS strong fill to overflow with goal HIS love to show

Find who I’m meant to be from what once was lost

Bind myself to HIS heart drum beat count the cost

Live for others to come to know HIS miracles to save and make one new

Give of myself to overcome to grow with empirical truth brave and awake to rescue

Grant a future and a hope to live out to guide those strayed back to paved straight and narrow

Plant as a tree near water secure sprout to provide shade one day to have gave worth to more than the sparrow
