 Carol's Journey

How Long


How long since you knelt in prayer
Laying before God your every care
Telling Him what was on your heart
Releasing your tears as they start

How long since you studied His Word
Allowing His gentle voice to be heard
Spending quality time with Him alone
Relying on His strength, not your own

How long since you shared His story
Reflecting His light, the hope of glory
Demonstrating His unconditional love
Coming down from the Father above
 
How long since you praised His name
Casting away your doubts and shame
Lifting up your voice in joyful song
Knowing He has carried you along

How long from God will you stray
Striving endlessly to find your way
Feeling miserable deep down inside
Realizing you need Him by your side

How long will it take before you see
Believing in Him is the way to be free
Everlasting life He offers, giving hope
Resulting in peace and ability to cope

Joel 2:13 (NIV)
Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the
LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents
from sending calamity.
