Double Tervillazanelle - Help Me Through Again

 


Help Me Through, Again

 

I always find myself seeking You
As in the world I sometimes find no peace
You give me rest, nothing else helps me through

Material things, how brief the new
As the excitement of new soon does cease
Once again I find myself seeking You

When temporary money does renew
Giving my state of being a false increase
Please give me rest, nothing else helps me through

I seek what this world has to offer
Only to be rejected deep in my soul
Then You give me hope in a counteroffer

You touch my soul in making me whole
When I search for peace this world to obtain
Because You made it clear that is Your goal

 

No matter to what in this world I gain
I always find myself seeking You
As money and material only brings strain
You 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, again

With drugs and acholic I try to refrain 
For to this I know joy will not last
In this world where hard my soul to maintain

Please give me strength to this to refrain
As time escapes to this in a daze so fast
I call on You to help me through, again

Although I look and seek the world over
There's nothing, nor no one to my soul appease
Never is my desire appeased soever

With You Lord, my heart and soul agrees
To the desires of this world my soul dies
As only You can to my heart please

 

Perhaps to here my being need not compromise
In this world where hard my soul to maintain
But knowing with You peace applies
I 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.
