Upon my Knees

Yes, I know it's been forever and a half since I made a post....but I'm not dead, I promise. Just busy. But that doesn't mean I haven't been writing...it just hasn't made it from my notebook to my blog... :)

Upon my knees I find myself again
All my strength withered away
Bruised. Battered. Hopeless?
Here upon the ground I feel I shall decay

Emptiness inside
No answers in my head
No air in my lungs
Every tear inside me has been shed

My strength is all but dry
I cannot do this on m own
With one last breath I stretch my arms
"I am nothing. Fill me," I groan

Upon my knees I remain
Though now in broken humbleness
My lungs filled with the sweetest of air
For to Him I called in my distress

Now I clearly see that upon my own I could not carry on
He gave me more than I could bear
He came and did so I may live
And in His name I find victor on my knees in prayer
