Help Me Through, Again
I always find myself seeking YouAs in the world I sometimes find no peaceYou give me rest, nothing else helps me throughMaterial things, how brief the newAs the excitement of new soon does ceaseOnce again I find myself seeking YouWhen temporary money does renewGiving my state of being a false increasePlease give me rest, nothing else helps me throughI seek what this world has to offerOnly to be rejected deep in my soulThen You give me hope in a counterofferYou touch my soul in making me wholeWhen I search for peace this world to obtainBecause You made it clear that is Your goal
No matter to what in this world I gainI always find myself seeking YouAs money and material only brings strainYou give me rest, nothing else helps me through
In this world my soul hard to maintain
Seeking for anything to fill a void
I call on You to help me through, againWith drugs and acholic I try to refrainFor to this I know joy will not lastIn this world where hard my soul to maintainPlease give me strength to this to refrainAs time escapes to this in a daze so fastI call on You to help me through, againAlthough I look and seek the world overThere's nothing, nor no one to my soul appeaseNever is my desire appeased soeverWith You Lord, my heart and soul agreesTo the desires of this world my soul diesAs only You can to my heart please
Perhaps to here my being need not compromiseIn this world where hard my soul to maintainBut knowing with You peace appliesI call on You to help me through, again
Thoughts: I noticed no matter what I do I am never at peace unless I am seeking the Lord; believe me I've tried. I've tried a few things throughout my life and have noticed the closer I get to the Lord, the less things of this world gives me peace and/or rest. I've gone on a shopping spree only to be temporary pleased and as soon as the newness wears off, there I am back at point one of trying to find something to appease me. Yes, I have tried drugs, in my lifetime, only to be wanting more and never satisfied. Money, the root of all evil, I learned to live without and know no amount of money will give me the peace and happiness the Lord can give me. Alcohol, besides the fact I can no longer tolerate it's affect, it too is temporary. Although, in this world of human life we find our highest fulfillment in the love of man and woman, in our spiritual life it's the love of God for His people and Christ for His church, where our soul's highest fulfillment is achieved. To a certain extent I can relate to King Solomon in his search for happiness, only to discover happiness is with God; as well as, peace and rest. As I continuously seek fulfillment here in this world, I know it's with the Lord it will be achieved and with Him I will get through, yet another unfulfilled desire this world has to offer.
