Tired of endless walking
Not knowing which way to go
I collapsed on a street called mercy
I was found in You

Throwing Your arms around me
You held me like I was Yours
Like You’d been there the whole time waiting
I was found in You

Wrapped up in scarlet kindness
You welcomed this sinner home
Now I breathe in the air of heaven
All I want is You

Keep me within Your shadow
Lord tether my heart to Yours
I want nothing without Your presence
All I want is You

You are all I want
You are all I need
Every breath I take
Is a breath to say
I am Yours now forever



Meaning: Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.-Matthew 5:15

In whatever we do, there is always struggle. At times that we think that life is just all about struggles, we always hope and pray for miracles. Miracles do happen everyday but since we are know living in a so called modern world which is is being run by technology, other people might just find it absurd as it doesn’t have any scientific basis plus the fact that science always had an explanation in everything.

As an individual, we may encounter something but during such times we always ask for guidance or perhaps mercy to God. We all know that we have a merciful God and we also know that The Father Almighty cannot resist us. By all means, He is willing to do everything you want without any hesitation and all you need to do is pray.
