Beacon in a Storm.

I Wish to be a Beacon

Do you ever wonder if you're doing enough and if there
is something deep inside that tells you to keep searching?

Feeling so inadequate lately with doubts lying in my soul.
I want to please my Savior but the doubts are taking a toll.
It seems as though Iím missing something, an important part.
Something very deep inside me that Godís laid on my heart.

No matter how deeply I probe into it, it never becomes clear.
On what my Savior expects of me, while I am abiding here.
A little spec of sunshine that lies deep within my soul.
Telling me thereís something there, vital to make me whole.

In time, I suppose heíll reveal this secret that lies deep within.
I hope I have the courage & fortitude to handle the task or the sin.
Hoping beyond hope that itís nothing Iíve done against HIM.
And able to conquer the task, so the spec of sunshine wonít grow dim.

I wish to be a beacon that shines on all those who are lost.
So they can find their way to HIM, when on the ocean waves are tossed.
I want them to know my Savior and all the gifts in store.
And hope beyond hope, they keep searching to hear more.
