The Dreamers Movement

The Cry

Thoughts all battling for attention in the brain of mine

You are so close and so far

I feel You in my heart but I don't sense You near me

I feel as if I have lost my friend

My life

My love

I don't know where You are but I feel You near

I look behind me but can't seem to catch a glimpse of You

I look to either side of me and I can't find You there either

I look ahead but no I do not see You leading me

The only place that I fail to look is up

It doesn't occur to me that the one place that I can find You is above

So I fall down to my knees and plead for You to come to me

Once again I feel You but I cannot see You

But I feel

Your peace

Your love

Your grace

Your forgiveness

I want You to show me what You will for my life

I want You to lead me to where You want me to be

To whom You wish me to be

But this world tugs




Shouts at me

It angers me

Makes me cry

Pleases me all in one massive mess

I want to cry

I want to weep

I want to laugh

I want to dance about like a fool

I wish people would see something different in me

Not just the people I know but the people who see me on the street

I want them to ask me about You

So I can tell them how You changed my life

I pray that I am doing what You want me to

Going the direction that You have dreamed for me

There is this hunger inside of me

That can't seem to be quenched by anything else but You

I know that You can quench it and I long for that quenching

And while I wait that day I will fall to my knees more often

To commune with You

My friend

My life

My love

And I pray that You shine through me every step of the way

Leading me and guiding me

Using me as a beacon for others longing for all that You are

Humble me so that I can take on Your work for me

Lord use me for Your glory
