Lord, I’m battling through for You


Lord, why do I battle?

Why do I fight?

When I know: Handing to You

Will set things right.


Lord, why can’t I wait?

Why do I persist?

When in truth: Handing to You

Will unclench these fists.


Lord, why don’t I obey?

Why do I stray?

When it’s obvious: Over to You

Is all I should say.


Lord, how can I change?

What should I do?

When my heart sings true:

“Only One can rule: You.”


Lord, how do I let go?

And not take back?

When history has shown me:

You have my back.


Lord, how do I relax?

And let You control?

When I’m standing in my way

Stopping Your blessings every day.


Lord, You made me man;

Flawed, imperfect man.

Lord, as I battle through…

Something I know I wished

Once upon a time…as a mere man;

I wished it wasn’t only You

Who gets to understand…

You replied: Love, only Love

And I humbled myself again,

Because You said: ‘understanding’ is not Your plan.
