Servant’s Choice

The world is falling down,
Where pity and fear reign,
To my Father I pray,
To help ease their pain.

Paralyzed by all the chaos,
That seems to come their way,
In this land of uncertainty,
For now I must live and stay.

I don’t understand what’s happening,
And then they question why,
I say our Father is with us,
Walking by our side.

I am not sure I can do this,
Cover me, hold me tight,
Their life is gripping me,
They need prayers to fight.

You say I am equipped,
And I am trying to not be consumed,
By their problems, their grief,
Trying to get my life resumed.

But I feel their pain,
In my empathetic way,
I feel their hurt and disappointment,
I can’t pretend all this will go away.

This pause button,
Makes me hault and think,
How can I not choose to serve you,
When you sent someone for me.

When I am their only light,
Because they don’t believe in you,
I try to comfort them,
Feed them your words to chew.

Thank you Father,
For the priviledge to serve,
You give me way, so much more,
That I ever should deserve.

Take away the clouds in their eyes,
Let the mirrors reflect your light,
Give me strength and compassion,
To calm and direct their flight.

You know I can do this,
You cover and hold me tight,
Their life is gripping me,
They need prayers to fight.

You have properly equipped me,
So I will not be consumed,
By their problems, their grief,
And help my life resume.

But I do their pain,
In my empathetic way,
I feel their hurt and disappointment,
I can’t pretend all this will go away.

You shelter me, oh Lord,
Give me wisdom and the power to pray,
Thank you Lord,
For I give you this yoke,
That you bear this very day.
Forever always,
You are patient, loving, kind,
Thank you Lord for the privilege,
To serve the broken and blind.
