Lyrical Friday - On My Knees

{photo credit}
Hello There.
Today's post is for any one who is weary, tired, burdened, overwhelmed, afraid, maybe even terrified, depressed, discouraged, rejected, humiliated, empty, alone, disappointed or feeling guilty, ashamed and condemned. It could be that you find yourself hopeless and dismayed. If things are not looking good for you from your view point, this song is for you.
May hope arise for you through the only gateway of hope: Jesus. Only He can fully satisfy your hungry heart and quench your thirst for life, joy and hope. He is your Savior, Redeemer, Father, Friend, Lover of your Soul, Provider, Healer, Teacher, Guide and every other role you need Him to be, He already is. Surrender your hurt, your pain, your all. As the song begins (and lyrically speaking, it's quite short) meditate on the words, let them sink in and become your words. As the music continues, scroll back up and meditate on these verses, let these sink in and become your prayers and anthem.

O LORD, hear my plea for justice.
Listen to my cry for help.
Pay attention to my prayer,
for it comes from honest lips.
Declare me innocent,
for you see those who do right.
You have tested my thoughts and examined my heart in the night.
You have scrutinized me and found nothing wrong.
I am determined not to sin in what I say.
I have followed your commands,
which keep me from following cruel and evil people.
My steps have stayed on your path;
I have not wavered from following you.
I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God.
Bend down and listen as I pray.
Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways.
By your mighty power you rescue
those who seek refuge from their enemies.
Guard me as you would guard your own eyes.
Hide me in the shadow of your wings
Psalm 17:1-8
In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul. Psalm 138:3
 It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

On My Knees, Seryn 

On my knees
I can see
Where my heart
needs to be.
When this life
Gets to me
I'll be found
On my knees.
