Back to “Go, ” 3/22-4/6/2016, Deon Mumple
I want to start again, go back to “Go,”
Except I’m lost and too far gone,
It’s been a long time since I heard the starting gun,
And all my prayers are answered “No.”
How did Job pass the Devil’s test?
When can I get a little rest?
How do I get a life that isn’t messed?
If I were Job I’d tell my “friends” where they could go
Except I know they’d be right saying I’m wrong
Not saying sin doesn’t sometimes seem quite fun,
It’s just that in my heart, it’s not right, I know.
So maybe that’s why the answer I get
Is either “no” or “not yet”
And when God and I are alone, I feel regret.
Grace isn’t an easy concept to understand
Every day I ask to be forgiven for sin
We are so imperfect, His mercy in high demand
Good thing God is infinite, isn’t it?
