There was a week and a half when, emotionally, things were going like a roller-coaster in my life. I woke up one morning with a heavy heart, praying in tears to God. In His faithfulness God comforted me and filled me with His peace. This is how I felt...
Lay me down LORD, down to sleep.
My weary soul is going bleak
Emotionally I feel like turmoil's raging
So lay me down LORD, let me sleep.
To leave this crazy, uncomfortable reality
The world is caving all around me
There is something wrong inside of me
I just want to lay down and go to sleep.
Maybe I'll sleep all my worries away
Or maybe they'll remain until another day
I really don't want to sleep them away
Jesus i need you right away!!!
So take my cares, LORD at Your feet
Turn my eyes to see Your face
LORD I'll carry my cross and follow You
Into Your soul saving grace.
You have kept me, Yes You did
My weary soul, I surrender all
Now enthroned upon my heart
You're my Redeemer my All in all.
You have kept me from emotional lies
The Holy Spirit, turned my eyes
To focus on the eternal prize
My Beloved, Jesus Christ.
