Searching – Romans 12:9

Searching – Romans 12:9

Is my love sincere
Will it try to cling to what is evil
Rather than embrace all that is good
What is it within this heart that beats
Will I ever discover it’s truth
If I dig a little deeper
Could I root out all that is impure
Indulge more within the word of truth
And if I finally discover all that’s meant for me
Will I find that it is enough
Or will this heart ever be in search
Of thing I should never really love

Verse of the Day – Romans 12:9

Romans 12:9

Romans 12:9

In a time of such much uncertainty and fear, we need to hate evil and cling to what is good more than ever.

Oh my God, look around this place
Your fingers reach around the bone
You set the break and set the tone
Flights of grace, and future falls
In present pain
All fools say, “Oh my God”

Oh my God, Why are we so afraid?
We make it worse when we don’t bleed
There is no cure for our disease
Turn a phrase, and rise again
Or fake your death and only tell your closest friend
Oh my God.

Oh my God, can I complain?
You take away my firm belief and graft my soul upon your grief
Weddings, boats and alibis
All drift away, and a mother cries

Liars and fools; sons and failures
Thieves will always say
Lost and found; ailing wanderers
Healers always say
Whores and angels; men with problems
Leavers always say
Broken hearted; separated
Orphans always say
War creators; racial haters
Preachers always say
Distant fathers; fallen warriors
Givers always say
Pilgrim saints; lonely widows
Users always say
Fearful mothers; watchful doubters
Saviors always say

Sometimes I cannot forgive
And these days, mercy cuts so deep
If the world was how it should be, maybe I could get some sleep
While I lay, I dream we’re better,
Scales were gone and faces light
When we wake, we hate our brother
We still move to hurt each other
Sometimes I can close my eyes,
And all the fear that keeps me silent falls below my heavy breathing,
What makes me so badly bent?
We all have a chance to murder
We all feel the need for wonder
We still want to be reminded that the pain is worth the thunder

Sometimes when I lose my grip, I wonder what to make of heaven
All the times I thought to reach up
All the times I had to give
Babies underneath their beds
Hospitals that cannot treat all the wounds that money causes,
All the comforts of cathedrals
All the cries of thirsty children – this is our inheritance
All the rage of watching mothers – this is our greatest offense

Oh my God
Oh my God
Oh my God

Where My Heart Fails – Romans 12:9

Where My Heart Fails – Romans 12:9

Where my heart fails
When sincerity is lost
Is it that I really love?
Or do shadows guard my heart?
I try to turn my face
Away from the rotten in the dark
Trying to hate the evil
Rather than let it in
I run from it all
I run to Him
But the shadow won’t stop
It follows everywhere I go
Even though I cling to Him
The shadow is ever near
And this is where my heart fails
When I let the shadow near
But I won’t let go
I cling with all I have
With everything I’ve got
Only safe in the knowledge
That above it all
And beyond my strength
My God will never let me go
