There are nights that seem so long
I still find it difficult to sleep
Even after devotion and prayer
I always stay awake looking at the ceiling
With lights on
Today is not any different
Am still staring at that same spot
Same as that night when you spoke
That night when we had a sit down
And you reminded me that you saw everything
Each tear I have shed
Each plan that crumbled
All the needless pain I bore
You reminded me:
How valued I was
And how I had sold myself short by going for what I thought was a good choice
How your arm was always outstretched
Through it all, you still watched over me
I was still yours
All I needed to do was Trust and Obey
You have me and you promised to NEVER leave
As I stare at the same spot tonight
I am so grateful for your love and goodness
You who made me whole, my Good Good father.
You have been faithful and your amazing grace sufficient.
Am still in awe on how You loved me when I seemed unlovable
When backs turned and you turned to me with outstretched arms.
When I left but you waited for me and took me back
You took away all my shame and you crowned me
You have sustained me
I have great confidence in your word.
Your love that endures forever
Your kindness that never falls
Your Mercies that are new every morning
Papa, what can I say ,Oshe Baba
I have tasted of You and i can confidently say that You are Good
I will forever glorify You.
Am desperate for you
Get closer, I get louder
Thank You for the cross, Lord.
