February 5, 2018 - Makati, Philippines
Heavenly Father, I feel so overwhelmed
My heart burdened by life's crushing weight
My hands slowly losing their grip from the helm
And help it seems may come too late
I close my eyes and let it all wash over me
Completely letting go of all control
Deep in stillness, I let myself be
Listening to the yearnings of my soul
I silently whisper my deepest longings
The pain, the hurt, and all my disappointments
How I remember the time I was filled with singing
Now my days seem to stretch in lasting atonement
I let myself fall asleep awash with tears
Not even sure if I ended my prayer with "Amen"
My doubts and worries, and all my fears
I surrendered to your mercies renewed every morning
And just as a loving Father caring for His son
You listen to my prayers, sinful as I am
Showing me love when there should be none
Making sure I understand where You're coming from
"My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit
A broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise"
Wash me with Christ's blood, fill me with the Holy Spirit
Let my mind be renewed each day as I rise
"You are my Rock and my Salvation
In You, My Father, my soul can rest
You are my Fortress, I will never be shaken"
With You, I will live and can survive any test
