Life Has Never Been So Confusing

Life has never been so confusing as it is right now,
Yet just as I say that God shows me it can get even more confusing.
So may things frustrate me and leave me feeling lost,
Only to end up being things that are later useful or amusing.
Love, life, finances, relationships with friends.
It is all a set of circles that I constantly round.
Sometimes it overwhelms me and I get so off balance.
I praise the Lord for helping me to stand my ground.
Single, dating, engaged, married, or whatever
There is nothing that guarantees us freedom from erring.
But glory to God there is a Man with grace and mercy,
And a Son with a heart filled with a love for sharing.
Today is a day I struggle to get through.
Yesterday was a day I longed to leave.
Tomorrow is the day I can not reach.
But in His good timing, I certainly believe.
At times I am certain of what road to take.
At times I am not so certain.
Sometimes I am completely bewildered,
And cannot bare the burden.
Thank the Lord for stepping in
And taking on my load
Just to show me when all is said and done,
He always knew the best road.

Glaring Love

Have you ever been pouring coffee
And found you missed the cup,
Hanged your head in frustration,
And swore you’re giving up?

Have you ever went to dress
And put your clothes on wrong,
Threw your hands up in the air,
And said you couldn’t carry on?

Have you ever tried to dial your house
And rang somebody else,
Slammed the phone down in anger,
And thought of seeking help?

Well this is just the phase I’m in
Over lingering on your love.
I’m blinded by the glare of it,
And feel like giving up.

So if you ever get a call
And no one says a thing,
I’m sorry, but I’m blinded again,
It’s hard remembering.
