God, Take the Pain Away

God, just one touch from you can take away all the pain
Just a whisper from your lips can heal my broken soul
And sure I might have prayed for this lifeBut I’m not quite feeling this vibe
Waking up drowning in last night’s tears
Bedbound by this morning’s fears
So why?
Why do you sit on your throne and watch me suffer?
Why do you sit there and watch me cry?
They told me to follow you
They told to become one with you
They told me to surrender to you
They told me once I surrender that my life will be better
They told me if I give myself over to you
That you’ll make a way when there seems to be no way
They told me you’re a God that never fails

So I listened.
I got close to you, I surrendered to you
I live my life in a way that glorifies you
I was promised a life of abundance and quickly answered prayers
But it seems like ever since I started walking intimately with you it’s been one thing after the next
It’s been pain, it‘s been loss, it’s been a time full of tears
The people that don’t even know you seem to be in love with their lives
Their hearts are just fine, they don’t cry at night
Why should I die to myself and give it all to you if this is what I get in return?
I cried out to you, I opened my heart to you
God I told you I can’t do this anymore
I can’t go through this anymore
I told you the pain brewing in my soul
And instead of taking it way
you showed me Habakkuk chapter 2 verse 3
And I quote
“It is not yet time for the message to come true,
but that time is coming soon;
the message will come true.
It may seem like a long time,
but be patient and wait for it,
because it will surely come;
it will not be delayed.” NCV

God why would you tell me to wait patiently on you when you can see I’m at the end of my strength, I’m at the end of my rope?
I can’t wait a long time, I need you to intervene right now
I heard you’re a right now kind of God.
The God that made the sun stand still, can’t you end it right now?
The God that raises the dead and heals the sick, can’t you do it right now?
God why do I have to keep going through this?

Then I hear you say
I’m growing you through this
My grace is sufficient
My grace is sufficient
My daughter My grace is sufficient for you
I’m creating something new in you
I putting something on the inside of you that this world can’t give
I have great plans for you but it’s going to cost you something
Your obedience is my requirement
I have plans to prosper you and not to harm you
Plans to give you a hope and a future
I didn’t do this to you but I’m using it for your good
Be patient and wait on me, My timing is what’s best

God, I’m sorry
I’m sorry for doubting you, I’m sorry for questioning you
You are my God
Thank you for you are
Yes, I was promised an abundant life and quickly answered prayers
I got close to you for what you could do
But I’ve gotten so much more
This current situation has made me forget
But I will remember
When times were tough it was your joy that brought me through
When it seemed like it would never end
You opened the door and made a way
You gave something in addition to quickly answered prayers, you gave me you
You showed me that I can depend on you
You showed me that I can lean on you
So even when it hurts I will cry out Abba
You’re a good good father
Even when it hurts I will call your name
I will say that you are good
I will say that you are worthy
God you are my all in all
You are my everything
You are God and God alone
You know what you’re doing
I will be patient and I will wait on you
One touch from you can take it away
But One touch of your grace can sustain me in the middle of it
I will run my race
I will stay the course
I know you’re doing a work on the inside for me
I know after I have been tested I will come out as gold
My prize isn’t here on earth but heavenward in Christ Jesus
I will store my treasure in heavenly places, not in this world
You Lord are the greatest gift I can receive, you God are all I need
I will not let my faith be shaken but I will wait on you and I will trust in you
God you are my rock and my firm foundation
So daddy I thank you
Thank you for who you are
Thank you for your grace
No matter what happens my hope and my confidence is in you
Abba, I‘m yours
