Hold my Hand

December 29, 2015 - Crestfallen, Prayer
Hold my Hand

Lord, I come before your throne
Ashamed of the sins I have committed
I often doubt if I truly am your son
I wonder how father and son could be of such extremes
Your holiness pierces me like a double-edged sword
Your purity burns my soul

Today, I come to ask for your forgiveness
For your mercy, for I am unworthy
Your love for me is so strong that I could never understand
I realize that it has been like a game, every time I ask you to cleanse me
I am worse than the pigs or the warthog
Immediately you wash them, they dig into the mud

My passions are driving me to the eternal fire
My desires eating up the good that is in me
I know it’s true that Satan is a liar
But how I find myself in the same ditch defeats my conscience
I can only blame myself
It has all been progressive, each day getting deeper and deeper into sin

I have sight, yet I am blind
I am unable to discern good from bad
At that state, sin is so attractive and fun
Yet at the very end, so humiliating
I often feel worthless soon after deriving fun out of it
I wish to drink the Living Water
For I know it brings eternal joy and gaiety

It doesn’t make sense at all
How I could place hot coals on my thighs
And expect not to get burned
Playing around the fireplace
I really wonder what drives me to such
Is it human nature?

Lord, I don’t have much to say
The only thing I can ask is that you hold my hand
And don’t let go
I am nothing without you

Hands holding cross
