In My Time of Need w/july03
Duet with June (July03)
Sometimes I just want to run away and hide for a while,
But I never do, because that just isn't my style.
Commitment and love guides me to do my duty,
Only there are times in my life when I don't see the beauty.
Sometimes I lose sight of the good and I just see a mess.
My sensibility is altered, because there's so much stress.
At times like this, I am at the end of my proverbial rope,
I look all around me, then into the heavens, seeking hope.
My heart is heavy, my mood is restless, then I look up toward the sky.
Feeling emotional and feeling hopeless, I taste the tears that I cry.
I fall on my knees and lift my prayers to my God on high,
He hears me, I know, I sense His presence is now nigh.
He gently reminds me of the good things that I have in my life.
Soon, I start to feel better and there's an easing of my strife.
A gentle peace begins to saturate my soul as He meets my need,
No longer see the mountain of trouble the same, I believe I will succeed
As so many times before when I'm at my lowest and feeling down,
I turn to God, because I know His peace and His love surely abound.
My belief in a power greater than myself leads me beside the still waters,
His gentle hand is there, no matter the problem with my sons or daughters.
