Passion Unplugged?

 

If my heart is overwhelmed
and I cannot hear Your voice
I’ll hold on to what is true though I cannot see
If the storms of life they come
and the road ahead gets steep
I will lift these hands in faith I will believe!

 

There was a time which seemed like just last week,
where my passion for Him was so strong,
that even you knew I had it too. 

Now, sadly, I have to remind myself of that very time,
and to ask, seek, knock again~ to be in that very place.
 
Please don’t misunderstand me or get me wrong. 
I still “so love Him”, and by Him I mean “Jesus”,
but I just don’t seem to “feel” anymore,
and as for joy, a distant memory.

I know He came to give me life & love abundantly,
so I wonder once again, what now have I done wrong?

I can’t figure out why this emptiness, this detachment, this void?

Now some “Christians” will tell me that there must be some sin in my life to cause all this grief.  And I will tell them “Duh… I live in the world don’t I?  There’s sin all around, isn’t there?  Gettin’ worse every day, wouldn’t you say?  Well, I live among sinners, of whom I am chief, says I!  So Duh… of course there is some sin in my life causing my grief.  Now that we are all on the same page with all that, can we get down to the [KINGDOM]  business of focusing on & serving God first, and leaving all the details to Him?!”

So then sometimes, at the end of the day… “it just is what it is”. 

And having felt what I have felt, still “I believe”! 
That this is what is meant “by faith”… when the passion’s been unplugged.

Lord, that You’d be Amplified…

If my heart is overwhelmed
and I cannot hear Your voice
I’ll hold on to what is true though I cannot see
If the storms of life they come
and the road ahead gets steep
I will lift these hands in faith I will believe

Pre-chorus:
I remind myself of all that You’ve done
And the life I have because Your Son

Chorus:
Love came down and rescued me
Love came down and set me free
I am Yours I am forever Yours
Mountain high or valley low
I sing out and remind my soul
I am Yours I am forever Yours

When my heart is filled with hope
and every promise comes my way
When I feel Your hands of grace rest upon me
Staying desperate for You God,
Staying humbled at Your feet
I will lift these hands and praise I will believe

[pre-chorus + chorus]

Bridge:
I am Yours, I am Yours,
all my days, Jesus, I am Yours
I am Yours, I am Yours
all my days, I am Yours

[chorus x2]

I am Yours
I am Yours
I am Yours
Jesus, I am Yours
