I’m Not Who I Was

Frail emotions
On the brink of destruction
Stability’s fading
And I’m losing my traction
Lies piercing my soul
Feeling so much like truth
Broken reality
Truth and lie fused

Have I loved You completely?
Have I given up my control?
I thought that I had
Now I question my soul
Show me what You will
Remove all the lies
I can’t see the difference
With this cluttered mind
Do I really love You?
Or am I just a fake?
I say that it’s real
But is that a mistake?

Anxieties invade
Love’s a deception
Hope for the broken
It’s all for attention
Striving for freedom
From sins that run deep
Guilty heart must admit
“Father, I’m weak”

Have I loved You completely?
Have I given up my control?
I thought that I had
Now I question my soul
Show me what You will
Remove all the lies
I can’t see the difference
With this cluttered mind
Do I really love You?
Or am I just a fake?
I say that it’s real
But is that a mistake?

Unblinded eyes
Burn from the light
Holiness shining
With hope in the night
Human ability
Minimal at best
Divine strength
Offers sweet rest

I have not loved You completely
But the best way I knew how
It’s not my full potential
But it’s all I have now
Show me what You will
As You expose all the truth
I will see my shortcomings
And keep turning to You
My heart aches to love You
It’s not been an act
Each day you still mold me
It’s been all that I have

Mending wounds
From past heartache and failure
Beautiful guidance
In the hands of a Savior
Awestruck devotion
The transformation of love
All I can say
Is I’m not who I was
