    i asked my Lord for peace
    and right now storm winds are blowing
    thunder and lightning
    clash and rage
    in my presence

    i prayed for grace
    and hell hounds are beating down a
    ragged path just behind
    each footstep that i take

    i beseeched my God for mercy
    and my life is falling down...
    turned upside down
    even as i speak

    i begged for compassion
    and sat accused even though
    i was innocent

    i bargained for forgiveness
    but rarely found a person
    on this earth who
    could just forget

    i moaned for faith
    but it seemed that
    i could never see His face

    i cried out for His love
    and in an instant
    He brought things to my remembrance....

    i am given peace to live
    my life even in the midst of a storm...

    He gives me His grace out of His love for me -
    i did nothing to deserve it

    His mercy for me has known no boundaries...
    the compassion He has shown me...
    do i give it to those in my life?

    & forgiveness...my Lord!
    i live in continual sin
    but He hears my prayers of repentance
    & forgives
    HE forgets each transgression
    against Him

    faith...freely given
    all i must do is believe

    and love
    love -
    He so loved.

    God is love.

    there is nothing else that i need...

    perfection
    in His name

    Amen.

    Thanks sis! The struggle is hard to live in
    the way we're supposed to, but He never
    ceases to bless, even in our selfishness.
    I needed this today, Dee! :)
