Guide Me, God

God, your plan for me hasn’t been easy
How many times do you want me to cry anyway?
I know I haven’t prayed much in the last few years
Is that why I’m having such an awful day?

I can’t pretend I don’t need your help anymore
So my only hope is that you’ll forgive
the fact that it is you I ignored
I just figured I had a life to live

Through my work, I talked to you
I know you listened to every word
And some of the lines you passed through me
were the most awesome things I’ve heard

Today I pray
Guide me God
Guide me home
Guide me God
Guide me home
I’m ready for you, Lord
So humbled and awed
Guide me with your love, God

They tell me to fear you cause you’re at the wheel
And you could let anyone out at anytime
This, I can’t understand, since your son was a man
Why would you take someone in his or her prime?

These questions I have – I don’t mean to offend
It’s just “The way it is” isn’t the answer I need
I was hoping for a more complicated reason from you
Something besides the bible I could read

So give me a sign if you want
I’m open to your huge heart
I’ll give you the glory you deserve

Tonight I write
Guide me God
Guide me to your light
Guide me God
Guide me to your light
I’m capable enough to understand
So please reach out your hand
Guide me with your love, my God
Guide me with your love, my God
Guide me with your love, my God.

True Story: I was on the road, broke as can be. I wrote this lyric and on the way back home from an expediting load at a rest stop, I found $46.00 on the ground. I was fine. It all happens for a reason, kids. It all happens for a reason.
