Lord, I have felt like everything is wrong,
It feels like all hope has been lost,
Overwhelmed with sleepless nights,
I think constantly of my failures.
This is the time when I cried out to you God,
In the middle of the night,
In the early morning,
When the shadow of depression touched my soul,
When I feel only darkness,
When my friendships are shattered.
In all of this you are speaking to me,
Waiting for my response:
I choose to praise – not hate,
I choose to live powerfully – in your strength,
I choose to love – forgiving wrongs,
I choose life – eternity with my Father.
