Too tired to reach
Too worn to seek
Dragging my stumbling feet
Waiting for my reprieve
Anchored and out of reach
Longing to rise and speak
I try but my voice is weak
Afloat but I’m moored to the beach
When will joy be the song of my heart?
Lord, I’m worn
I don’t know where to start
It’s a push and my mind is a maze
A mist rises
And I’m caught in the haze.
But Your word is a light to my path
Help me soar when I take your right hand
Let me live like a bird who is free
Unfettered by life’s slow bleed
Let me rise on a wind that holds weight
Open wide the door to my passionless cage
Eyes wide, alive and wide awake
Lord, I need Your great power to guide the way.
Shine your light on my moody horizon
Let me laugh at the days still to come
Breath your abundant life into these dry bones
Top me up with Your undying love.

Your Word is a Path Unto My Feet
Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions;
the revelation of your Word makes my pathway clear.
To live my life by your righteous rules
has been my holy and lifelong commitment.
I’m bruised and broken, overwhelmed by it all;
breathe life into me again by your living word.
Lord, receive my grateful thanks
and teach me more of how to please you.
Even though my life hangs in the balance,
I’ll keep following what you’ve taught me, no matter what.
The ungodly have done their best to throw me off track,
but I’ll not deviate from what you’ve told me to do.
Everything you speak to me is like joyous treasure,
filling my life with gladness.
I have determined in my heart to obey whatever you say,
fully and forever!Psalm 119:105-112 (The Passion Translation)
