On Fire for All Things Christ

When I Cry

I was in the grips of despair yesterday. My heart ached so much. I felt alone and unloved.

Often I cry out to God and it seems like I get no response. In turn, I feel unloved and unwanted by Him. Lord, why do You not reach out to me? I constantly feel like I’m waiting for Your answer or rescue. I just want to be loved! Are you holding back Your love because I’ve been disobedient? Please, show me Lord. Reveal my heart, reveal Yourself to me!

As you can probably sense, there are several things battling in my mind and heart. These two songs below caught my attention yesterday. I suppose that is how God answered me, through these songs. Revealing to me who He is.

Cry on My Shoulder by Overflow

You say you’re falling apart
Reached the end of the line
Just looking for your place in an ordinary life
No one calls you friend
No one even knows your name
You just want to feel loved instead of all the pain

You no longer have to say
No one’s listening anyway

Come here and cry on my shoulder
I’ll hold you ’til its over
I’ll rescue you tonight
Let my arms be your shelter
Your hiding place forever
I’ll love you more than life

You’re wearing a frown
Giving up on hope
My heart is reaching out more than you will ever know
Is your burden too much
Is it more than you can bear
I’ll help carry the load if you’re willing to share

You have had some hard times
Had thorns placed in your side
I know about what you’ve been going through
Tears of pain are falling down
It hurts so bad you’re crying out
Your problems won’t last forever
Let me put you back together

 

I AM by Mark Schultz

I am the maker of the Heavens
I am the bright and morning star
I am the breath of all Creation
Who always was
And is to come

I am the One who walked on water
I am the One who calmed the seas
I am the miracles and wonders
So come and see
And follow me
You will know

I am the fount of living water
The risen Son of man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am

I am the spirit deep inside you
I am the word upon your heart
I am the One who even knew you
Before your birth
Before you were

I am the fount of living water
The risen Son of man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am

Before the Earth (I am)
The universe (I am)
In every heart (I am)
Oh, where you are (I am)
The Lord of lords (I am)
The King of Kings (I am)
The Holy lamb (I am)
Above all things

I am the fount of living water
The risen Son of man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am

Yes, I am almighty God your father
The risen son of man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry,
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am
