How long, O LORD?
Will You forget me forever?
How love will You hide Your face from me?

How long shall I take counsel in my soul?
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and answer me, O LORD my God
Enlighten my eyes,
or I will sleep the sleep of death

And my enemy will say
“I have overcome him”
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken

comforter of my heart
lover of my soul
i need you once more
after a troubled fall

a prayer in my heart
im afraid of what might start
i cant hold a guitar
nor sing in front of a crowd

a simple mistake
is all that it took
it gave birth to fear
within my heart where you look

comforter of my heart
lover of my soul
i need you right here
to wipe off my fear

its hard to hear a song
the one that took me long
o God feel that my heart is heavy
and i dont know when i’ll be ready

i trust in your will
my God you are good
i trust in your ways
the way you put these things to shame

i come to you broken
like i have always been
i pray that you make me whole
o lover of my soul

o comforter of my heart
wipe these tears of dark
teach me how to worship
no attachments, set apart

everything i lift up to you
i fear that i might fall away
right now i’m not in my right mind
help me o God, let me stay blind

i remember what you did
i’ll remember how you shaped me
molded me into this man
who runs to you after screwing up a band

o God my strength
help me up from the ground
i feel my every pound
pulling me down back to the ground

o comforter of my heart
o lover of my soul
my Lord and my God
let me know you more.

Is our God too small?

“Christian minds have been conformed to the modern spirit: the spirit… that spawns great thoughts of man and leaves room for only small thoughts of God.” – J.I. Packer

We are so used to human thinking and that thinking limits us of our picture of God. And with that image of God in our hearts, even His abilities are limited based on our beliefs. The problem here, when we get drunk and engulfed by our limited human thinking, if this is so… then it’s gets hard to love the magnificence of God for who He is. The uncreated, self sustaining creator who has burning passion for us, and instead of this we run towards our human idols that doesn’t run near to comparison to who God is. We think that other human beings can complete us, this is what I think that’s being spawned on our minds when we think of other men to complete us, instead of running towards a God who can definitely make us whole. We have lost the fear of the Lord, we are so full of ourselves that we even forget to tremble when the Lord is upon us. We get blind and deaf in the spirit. We couldn’t discern His presence and with that said, I’m afraid that because of that, we won’t feel the forgiveness of God. Everything else that we know about God is downsized, this is why we don’t experience God for who He truly is.

A Dance With My Father

one stare that would lead to forever
a glance that would start this dance
the light, blinding as You move
there’s the music from my heart, feel its groove

You once said feel the flow
as rivers of tears ran down my face
I never understood
Never, that’s why I remained rude

and along this dance
with lovely music to prance
I searched, with closed eyes
A proud son, with his head held high

Now You straightened my glance
with few words I’ve heard
“Why do you look up there?” He asked
With a quite smile I answered
“I seek You”
and a peaceful thunder, my heart was sundered
“What for? I’m dancing among you”
He answered back.
