Out of Sorts and Sync

Seemingly out of sorts and sync
Have you ever reluctantly been there?
Where you inwardly feel a bit square
Like you’re frantically going crazy
And angrily want to pull out your hair
When your confidence is rapidly fleeting
Your assurance dwindling and you don’t dare
To make a bold move, not knowing where
Nor what you should endeavor to do
When it seems life is passing by you
Ever so quickly, but you can’t grasp it
Nor comprehend how to live in the moment
Perplexed by life’s circumstances and situations
No time to have others questions your motivations
You’re just set to survival mode as you implode
Bordering a sudden propensity to also explode
As you inwardly are overwhelmed and erode
In financial debt your bills frighten your abode
The home in which you live seems unstable
As if any creditor were able to remove it from you
Scurrying seeking employment not knowing what to do
You pray earnestly to God asking for a breakthrough
To get you miraculously through what you’re going through
To wipe away the pain, pressure, and profuse inner turoil
To renew your heart and mind that life’s challenges spoil
To resurrect your dying vision, hope, and joy for the future
To open your eyes and direct your feet to opportunity’s door
For surely beyond your present experience to life there is more.

Seasons of Suffering

Seasons of suffering

Dear God, will they ever end?

Seasons of suffering

Bringing me to my wits end

Seasons of suffering

Teaching me heartfelt obedience

To live in the realm of the Spirit

Seasons of suffering

Until I embrace and hear it

God Almighty come and stop it!

Seasons of suffering

Grinding down my motives

Seasons of suffering

Persistent like a locomotive

Seasons of suffering

Continually coming

Although I be running

Sometimes in anger cursing

Always hating and resisting

Such perilous times and measures

Yet within my heart is a treasure

A far greater weight of God’s glory

Therefore He applies divine pressure

To change my wayward character

To rewrite my pitiful life story

To add integrity when I don’t care

To give me peace deep within

When I want to pull out my hair

To calm my nerves, silence the storms

Help a heart that is worn and forlorn

To uplift my spirit when I feel like a worm

To encourage my heart when I wish to depart

To comfort my soul and make me whole

To restore to me what the devil has stole

Seasons of suffering not always as they seem

For in actuality God is good when He seems mean

Nevertheless when you learn the life lessons

He’s endeavoring to instruct and teach

In the end you shall rejoice and be complete.

Therefore surrender to your heavenly Father

Your distant heart, dirty hands, and frail feet.
