Closer Than A Brother


God I am confused
There are so many things
Questions… Fears…
I do not know what to do with them
– Some days it’s just too much.

I know I had to bring it all to You
Casting all my cares unto you
I threw my hands in the air
“Take it Lord, all these questions and fears…”

Then I find myself pondering on it again
digging for an answer I know does not exist

… I remember the baby You gave me
a small helpless infant crying…
A responsibility I did not understand, nor want…
So, I ignored it out of fear and ignorance.

Some seven years had gone by when I found it again
still an infant – helpless… “Who is this?” I asked.
Then I knew… I picked up this child for the first time…
I knew I had to take care of this life.

It was then that I experienced overwhelming love
…the way I had to raise this child.
And You where there every step of the way with me
Your guiding hands of love where ever I went.

Lord God I receive your overwhelming love for me
You took me out of every way of destruction
You restored me then and You are doing it yet again…
