That My Maker is a Promise

“Everyone wants to know God, but they’re afraid of what they’ll find. Everyone wants to know God, but they want to live like he died.” ~Anberlin


That My Maker is a Promise


I’m but a passing wind that ruffles the leaves of a tree.
I’m here one moment and I can be gone in an instant.
My plans don’t mean anything, but they also mean so much more than I know.
My moments and my heart is not reliant on me, it should be reliant on God.

My heart has been so hard.
I have been defensive because I’m scared of being hurt.
I know they love me and yet I have built a wall.
Nothing is perfect, especially in this world of lies.

Love is something that I choose.
I choose you, I choose my family, I choose my Maker.
Love is what I wish to show.
So Lord break down my barriers that I put up and created all those years ago.

For everyday I had to be guarded.
I had a one way window life.
The lie is that it is happening now.
The lie is my sensitivity to small flaws, banter, and my own head.

God, I am but a wave that comes alive and crashes down.
Remove my sin that I am aware of and the sin that eludes me.
Use your water to erode my tired and thirsty soul.
Destroy the wall that is between my head and my heart.

Destroy the battlements that are growing in me day by day.
The ones that I am using against those that I love.
The ones that hurt far more than any embarrassing moment.
The ones that use the defense as an offense against my heart.

Help me value what you have given me.
Help me value what you have not revealed to me.
Help me love the enemies that wish to murder me.
And most importantly, help me to give back to the ones that have nothing.

God, why does it sometimes feel like you’ve given up on me?
Why does this false sentiment keeps rearing its ugly head?
Why is it so easy to forget the good that you produce everyday?

God, you are there in my struggles.
And I praise you for that.
And I will continue to praise you.
That my Maker is a promise.

God don’t give up on me!
For I won’t give up on love.
I won’t give up helping those that need more than a safe place to hide.
Don’t give up on me God.

For you are great.
And all I do, I want to do it for you.
You’re enough to set me free.
You’re enough to keep me in suffering.
For I need to love in both situations.

I’m but a passing wind that ruffles the leaves of a tree.
I’m here one moment and I can be gone in an instant.
My plans don’t mean anything, but they also mean so much more than I know.
My moments and my heart is not reliant on me, it should be reliant on God.
