Something to Say

Sometimes I can be full of tears and cries of desperation. Yet, other times I am silent, and catatonic. Though my actions scream apathy, that is far from the truth.
Tonight I am at a loss for words, but full of feeling...full of emotions, pain, disgrace and shame. I'm full of confusion. I'm tired of being labeled a victim. When pain comes from injustice, forgiveness can be found in my heart. When pain comes from a sin I have committed, I drown in regret that rises like a flood. And while it may not make sense to others, I yearn for discipline. I want people to stop blaming others and to blame me instead...blame my lack of faith, trust, and hope. I do want them to mourn with me when I mourn, but to not say "poor her." I don't want my faults justified. Somewhere, covered by the lies that the Enemy has fed me and that I have swallowed, there is a yearning to hold on to hope...not hope that I have...but hope that others have shown for me. It is at a time like this season of my life, that I am thankful for the words of others.

Something to Say

I've got something to say
It's been one of those days
When I'm finding it hard to believe in You

I've got something to say
I've forgotten how to pray
And I'm finding it hard to believe the Truth.

I've got something to say
Right now it feels like You are slipping away
Like I am drowning in a crisis of faith
Like I'm alone

I've got something to say
What was black and white is gray
And I'm finding it hard to believe in You

And faith might mean there won't be answers
And hope might mean enduring through the night
But help me not forget in darkness
The things that I believed in light
