IS THERE EVER A TIME, LORD, WHEN YOU DESPAIR OF ME?

Is there ever a time, LORD,
When You despair of me?
When You Throw Your Hands in the air,
And say... "When will she see?"

As I go around this 'mountain'
Yet again in my life...
I'm disappointed in ME, because I thought
I'd finished with this particular 'strife'!

The Christian walk is a journey,
I know this is so true.
But in the times that I despair of MYSELF,
It's difficult to keep my eyes fixed on YOU!

I know that Your Presence is Wonderful
And can Brighten the darkest day...
But MY inability to take control of this 'area' in my life,
Depresses me so - so why should You Choose to stay?

And yet... within my spirit...
All I sense is Your Loving Touch!
The feeling of continuing Acceptance from You -
And The Beautiful Smile I love so much!

I sense that You Long only to Show me,
That Your Pure, Unconditional Love will never change...
That Drawing me to keep my eyes fixed on You -
One day at a time - You'll MY perceptions rearrange!

You will Give me time AND Wisdom,
In how to sort the problem out...
In doing so You will, be as always, 
The Best Friend Anyone could have, without a doubt!

So... Thank You, Jesus, for Loving me,
Instead of throwing Your Hands in the air!
Thank You instead for Bringing me Your Presence...
Your Peace and... in time... Your Joy beyond compare!!!
