When I get this feeling… I run with it. And yesterday I started to get that feeling again. That feeling about writing some more songs. I am just the word guy, but a friend of mine is great with music. We have co-wrote a couple of songs together.
But today, I keep getting that stirring. I guess the creative juices are starting to flow… following is the start of my latest….This is just the beginning. Normally I take about 25 or so rewrites, so the structure is not here that I want. With that in mind, let me know what you think.
It is Your mercy
feeling lonely and depressed
realizing that life just isn’t right
She walked into the church
in some final act to get it right
A husband who left her
two kids who got lost
lungs that were screaming
and a heart that felt tossed
life had been crashing
and all around her was pain
when she gathered the strength
to cry out His name
I know that i am not worthy, but
I am crying out for some help
My compass seems to be broken
and I am stumbling along in the dark
i know it is your mercy
that will grab me from these depths
I know it is your mercy
that will carry me up these steps
It really doesn’t matter how much stuff a person owns,
Rather it is all about the way we live our life … the way we love … and how we end the day…
following the path He has set aside, and
loving those who surround us each and every day
From here the story continues. I am not sure what verse #2 will be, but I am leaning toward the next step in this person’s life. Another thought is to go with the husband’s struggles, the kids struggles, and how God worked in each of their lives.
Honestly, let me know what you think.
