Search And Rescue

A glimpse of my journey

by Lana Marie

My life had no direction
I was being tossed
by the wave of the sea,

too many poor decisions
I needed the Savior
to come and rescue me.

My heart began searching
for all the truth
I desired within

I wanted to stop living my life 
that was filled with so much sin.

On the inside I was lost 
but on the outside
everything looked good,

I was good at going
through the motions, 
nobody really understood.

The loneliness I felt daily
I suppressed by my activities,

the Lord heard my parents praying
 for me on bended knees.

When I look back at the things
that I had done,
I'm sure there were Angeles
 all around,

protecting me from
some circumstances
and guiding me
to solid ground.

If only I could see
what was going on
in the spiritual realm,

God's love for me
would be enough,
In my heart to overwhelm.

When I look back I'm thankful
for all the time I was pursued,

by my God and my Savior
many consequences they defused.

There came a time
I finally realized
there had to be more
than what I knew,

I was willing
to take a chance
and a new life
I'd pursue.

I just wanted to be happy
I was willing to leave
everything behind,

to start a new life in Him
Not knowing peace
is something I would find.

It definitely had been a process
to iron out all of my mistakes.

In my heart I kept reaching,
for God to heal all my heart aches.

Each day I spent with Him
I desired to know him more,

He started to infiltrate me
to my very core.

The desire to please Him
became more important to me,

I wanted to carry out his plans
for my destiny.

To Him we are worth pursuing
He sees our value and our worth,

that's why He had a rescue plan
and sent Jesus through a virgin birth.
