 Sometimes it seems this road will never end.

 Long and winding, rough and steep

 I look and look, but all I see are turns and bends.


One day I wake up with hope in bloom

 Sun is shining, birds are singing

 I get knocked back down, that very afternoon.


 I know all the right responses my heart should say

 “God, it’s about Your glory.” “I choose to trust You.”

And so on and so forth, but sometimes these seem just a bit gray.


I never saw myself in this particular struggle

It never occurred to me that I could face this.


 Yes, some days are better than others,

Yes, I am still choosing to trust

But Lord, I often wonder what You are doing,

 And words being written down have now become “a must!”.


 I am in this struggle not for my lifetime,

 I know that the road will truly end.

 I just need to let You know,

 I am weary Of all of the turns and all the bends.


Hold my head up, don’t let it hang.

Shut the mouth of the enemy

Who brings nothing but shame.


Today, I rise up off my knees

 Thankful I brought my feelings to You

 Even if it does make me look weak.


 Today, tomorrow, and forever, I know

 You alone can make me strong

 You alone know where I am on this road

When what I see is all the wrong.


Psalm 13

 1 How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever?
   How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
   and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
   How long will my enemy triumph over me?

 3 Look on me and answer, LORD my God.
   Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
   and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

 5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
   my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the LORD’s praise,
   for he has been good to me.
