Powerless

This poem was motivated from Lesson 2: Powerless, of the Celebrate Recovery ciriculum.

Powerless
Why is my pride always in my way?
When all that I want is to send You my praise.
At the foot of the cross, I will be humbled
As You pick me up from where I stumbled

If only I’d known, of Your love sooner
Would I still be here, angry and bitter?
But does it really matter when I found out?
Either way I’m still fighting the matter of doubt

So why do I worry on what I can’t control
God, You win. Here’s my life. I fold.
What can You do with this life I have wrecked
Can You really move my sins to the west?

I tried to escape but still You pursued
You only wanted to see me through
Can I escape into Your loving arms
Oh, Father won’t You just hold me unharmed

Will You help me forgive those who I resent?
As You forgive me once I repent.
Why did I hold on to anger for so long?
I never let go of every last wrong.

When I am lonely, what will I choose?
Will I choose to give in or come running to You?
You want to save my soul from sin’s cost
So You came to find me where I was lost

Emptiness in my life and a hole in heart
This is where all my sins have left me scarred
But You won the war and showed me the lies
The glory of a soul that is fully alive

Human nature is selfish, to think of ourselves
But Your mercy saved me when I deserved hell
You reached out and called me to serve
And daily I’m finding, it’s a learning curve

You bridged separation up on the cross
Jesus’ death brought me to found from lost
I am convinced, You’ll remain in my heart
I know now what missed while we were apart
