Where I Belong

Where I Belong

Open and empty
This heart has poured out all it can
Now I’m left in nothingness
Not knowing where I belong

Cold and alone
This soul is out in the elements
Taken by the winter it walks
Not knowing where I’m going to

Lost and longing
This mind is walking in circles
Trying to find it’s way home
Not knowing when I’ll return

Free and saved
This mind has been made
By the Son who took the cross
Now knowing who I am

Loved and protected
This soul is made safe
No matter where is roams
Now knowing to where it calls home

Healed and strengthened
This heart is ignited by love
No longer a wandering entity
Now knowing it’s to Christ I belong

When I Am – Psalm 36:5

When I Am – Psalm 36:5

When I am lost
I need only look up to the skies
Where Your love reaches further
Further and further to the heavens above

When I am low
I need only look out to the oceans
Where You walk across the water to me
Closer and closer comes Your love

When I am crying
I need only look to the tears within my hands
Where You take the tears and set them in Your jars
Stronger and stronger my faith becomes

When I am alive
I just know Your love has found me in my depths
Where You faithfulness raises me beyond clouds
Nearer and nearer to Your heart

When I am free
I just know by Your hand I am released
Where Your love has found me in my worry
Forever and ever I praise You Lord

When I am faithful
I just know I am a Child of our God
Where You hope and love lights up a heavy heart
Greater and greater is the Father’s love

Where The Broken Dwell – Acts 9:10-11

Where The Broken Dwell – Acts 9:10-11

To follow the road
So straight
Or winding ways
Through empty lands
Spirit lead me there
To where the broken dwell
The lost are calling
Upon broken knee
For a hope
For a brighter day
I know they’ve heard stories
Seen a man with a box
On crowded street
Telling of a saviour
Yet they’ve still to see
A heart that was lost
in empty moments like theirs
They need to see
A heart that was dead
Now brought to life
By the power of the One
Who took to a cross
To release the lost
And lead them home
So send me there
Let me follow the road
The straight or winding
To where they are
Where the broken dwell
Let me show them a heart
One once so black
That beats again
From the Saviour’s blood
Let me show them life
Tell them of Your love
So lead me spirit
To follow the road
The straight and the winding
To where the broken dwell

Acts 9:10-11

From Emptiness – Proverbs 17:22

From Emptiness – Proverbs 17:22

How do you feel tonight?
I can see the shadows
Behind the eyes
The mind is racing
Through lost thoughts
Of a waste of life
One of no worth
How could they love you?
When you can’t love yourself
How could they need you?
When you don’t want yourself
Do you feel they could never know?
How you feel
So very, very low
Where hope is dry
Like dust and bones
Lost in the sands
The desert tomb
Still there is a wind
That blows through the valley
One of life
One of hope
To bring life
To dried up bones
Life to the lifeless
Hope for the hopeless
And love to the loveless
Your worth to the Father
More precious that you know
His love for you
Stretches far beyond the sun
See His face
Embrace His arms
Let the love invade the heart
For the heart is where life beats
Where the touch of the Father
Restores the weak
In cheerful voice
You will praise His name
And feel the emptiness
Just fade away
His love for you
Will end the emptiness
Where love can grow
To fill the soul
You’ll find the worth
To the Father and Son
Realise you worth to everyone
Seeing the world in different light
And those who love you
Will see you change
And grow inside
To rise again
When you let the Father
Heal your heart

Proverbs 17:22

My God, My Heart – Jeremiah 32:38-39

My God, My Heart – Jeremiah 32:38-39

My God, my heart
Teach me to see You
In ways I’ve never known
To understand Your word
Leading to the way I should go
Teach me So I can teach them
The children entrusted to me
So they may have a heart
That beats only for You

Heart – Psalm 73:26

Heart – Psalm 73:26

Days will go by
And I feel my heart fail
Buried deep below the feelings
From where I feel I can never recover
Dragged below by desires of the flesh
Then the night comes
My pains turns to prayer
And in those words I hear
I feel His strength reach this heart
In the night He is my portion
Saviour of my lonesome heart
My hope to face the new day
With a strength to see it through
Where this heart beats stronger than ever
And the Lord and I take new steps together

Psalm 73:26

Timing – Ecclesiastes 3:11

Timing – Ecclesiastes 3:11

In my mind I want the day
in my heart I want it now
Can I wait?
Will this heart be pulled apart?
Will this soul be torn in two?
Can I hold tight the promise?
Will I see this through to the end?
A burning desire
Just waiting to break out
But the timing is His
He sets it all
To a time when the beauty will bloom
And something new grows
In His timing man cannot comprehend
And all He asks is to trust in Him
So here I hold
The internal battle raging on
But His promise is true
And all I can do is believe
With all I have
Believe
