A poem reminding us that come what may, God is in control, and we can have peace in Him.

By Ashley Barr

Why is my life going to pieces?

Why is my world falling apart?

Guilt and anger are clouding my mind,

While mourning fills my heart.

What have I done to deserve this?

Why are these trials crushing me?

How can I fill this void inside?

When will my heart be free?

How can I soar like eagles,

When I can barely crawl?

I give up; I give it to you,

I can do nothing at all.

Lord, you took my heart and made it clean.

You gave me a life brand new.

You took my mourning and gave me dancing.

And with my song I will praise you.

I called on you in the day of trouble,

You delivered me from the fire.

I will glorify you all my life.

You are my one desire.

I sought you, you heard me,

You took all my fears away.

I will serve you in everything,

Forever, come what may.

The Lord is my strength,

Who is there to fear?

I know that before I call,

My Jesus, my Savior, is here.

Lord, you took my heart and made it clean.

You gave me a life brand new.

You took my mourning and gave me dancing.

And with my song I will praise you.
