Turn My Life Around

I don't know where I went wrong.
I can't say which turn led me here.
I only know that I'm afraid-
I feel worn down and full of fear.

So much lies still within my soul-
wanting to burst free to serve your will.
I try to find the strength within-
but, it seems like every day I'm standing still.

Lord, will you turn my life around?
I invite you now into my heart.
No matter what I've done or what I've tried-
I need your help for a new start.

Lord, I'm praying with all I've got-
for you to come into my life.
I need my to plant my feet on solid ground.
Lord, will you turn my life around?

It's been so long since I have known-
the inner peace that you can give.
Yes, over time I've learned and I have grown.
But, now it's time for me to learn to live.

Whenever I have tried to find the way-
through this confusing life without your grace;
I fall and stumble everywhere-
as softly tears run down upon my face.

Lord, I know what I must do-
So please, take this invite to my heart.
I need you to come in and to surround.
Lord, will you turn my life around?

There's one more thing that I have got to say-
as I feel your love inside of me abound.
I thank you, Lord, with all I have to give.
For loving me and turning my life around.

Epilog: It's easy to trust and have faith in the Lord - but, it's the turning over your life 100% that I, along with so many others have a tough time doing. I keep asking myself, "What am I missing? Why can't I just completely 'let go and let God'?" I think a lot of people are that way. They struggle with complete surrender and the irony is - life would be so much easier if we'd allow the Lord to carry our burdens instead of trying to take on the whole world alone.

We don't have all the answers or the strength - but, God does.

"Then Jesus said, 'Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest'."   (Matthew 11:28 NLT)
