A letter.

A letter.

I walk this lonely road,
Cold and tired,
Hungry for God.
And I am alone.

And I hope for a savior,
To take me from this place,
And be my shelter from the storm.
And I listen.

As the strong gust blows,
I fold my hands and bow my head,
Praying, praying,
And I try to trust in Him.

But I fail, and fall short,
And my doubt intercedes.
I weep bitterly,
And I do not sleep.

Still the Lord God hears my cry,
And as I knock, and seek, and ask,
He makes good on His word.
And He reaches out to me.

But I push away what I do not know,
What I fear, what I do not understand,
For His power and glory are beyond measure.
And I am still lonely.

I embrace my sins again,
Driven back to the Devil,
By my own lack of faith.
And I ignore Him.

But He does not give up on me,
And he reminds me of this,
No matter where I go.
And I am at the lowest place.

This goes on, and on,
And as sinful as I am,
The Lord God is patient,
And He persists.

And as I can ignore Him no longer,
I confess my sins to the Lord,
And plead for His forgiveness,
And I am undeserving of it.

And I shed a tear.
For who can overlook these trangressions?
Yet in his sight I am born again.
And by his grace I am cleansed.

His voice calls out to me in the wilderness,
And I cling to His Word,
For it keeps me on His path.
And through his mercy, I am renewed.

And I cry out for Jesus,
Praying that I might be saved,
And rejoice in His perfect ways.
And I am desperate.

By His sure will, He reaches out to me,
Offering His ever-helping hand,
Taking me into His warm embrace.
And I know that it will be all right.

And I am still cold, and tired,
But no longer alone, for if our God is with us,
Who can be against us?
And I have faith.

I stand here today a sinner, yea,
And I was one yesterday,
And will be tommorow too,
But in Christ Jesus I am anew.
And I am complete.
