Resident Reflection: Walking


When my heart is broken
And from my tears, my pillow’s soakin’
When I chase deceiving brass token
From every dream I am awoken

When my ways have me cloakin’
And my days have me chokin’
When I’m abused and shooken
You can find my story without hardly lookin’

And ladies, I ain’t joking’
The frog I’ve kissed is still croaking’
But behind me is a Prince of peace evoking
And when he has spoken
The demons will stop poking’

I am is faithful
See Abel offer something that ain’t cheap
See Noah build an ark without a peep
See elderly Sarah hold her baby and weep
See Abraham offer his son like a sheep
See Moses lead slaves through red Sea deep
See the walls of Jericho fall in a heap
See Rehab hide the good spies even though she was a harlot.
He keeps all of His promises
And with your heart He never compromises
Yahweh is a faithful God
