All of my life I have been searching for someone to help me out All of my days are spent in wandering about All of my trials and temptations don’t lead me anywhere I have not figured out why I am here I have looked to drugs and alcohol to bring me some relief But they only added to me sense of grief I had money, I was wealthy, I had riches and much fame But life only seemed to be a tiresome game Then I found the Lord or He found me And He told me what I was made to be A child of God and forever free Now He’s here walking with me Jesus is my guiding light Jesus is my help at night Jesus is the one who saved my soul From the depths below Now I choose to walk with Him and He shows me the way His love shadows over me each day I have given everything to follow in His past Because I know it will last I know the Lord and he knows me All that I do and all that I see I pray that He will help me be All that He has desired for me Jesus is my guiding light Jesus is my help at night Jesus is the one who saves my soul From the depths below
Rivers in the desert
Manna down from heaven
All that I desire
Comes alive in you
Grace that knows no measure
Comes alive in you
Lord keep me safe in your arms
Lord give me rest from all harm
Only in you can I find peace
You are my destiny
All of our lives we search after meaning. Why am I here? What am I supposed to accomplish? What purpose is there for me? These questions, whether we want to admit it or not, flow through our minds day in and day out. They can drive us to do things that are not meant to be done. They can make us say things that should not be spoken. If someone gets in our way, we demand they move. If someone should offend us, we want to get even. All this because we have not yet found the real path that are lives are bound for. We have wandered and sometimes made our own path, thinking surely this will be the right way to go.
There is only one path. There is only on way. Our destiny is fulfilled once we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. When we find His grace and mercy true rest comes. Rest for our wandering hearts. Rest for our weary souls. Our eternal destination, our destiny, is in Him. Once we have arrived there, the journey has just begun. From this point on life becomes a mission.
Philippians 3:13-14 King James Version
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
