PURPOSE

by Mike Brotherton © 1995

I'M FILLED WITH ANTICIPATION AS I WAIT TO GO AWAY. I'M GOING BACK HOME TO MAKE AMENDS TODAY.

MY LIFE IS PUT ON HOLD AS I STRAIGHTEN OUT MY PAST. I CANT GO ON WITH MY LIFE UNTIL I FACE MY FEARS AT LAST.

YOU SEE I TRIED TO CHASE A RAINBOW. I TRIED TO LIVE A DREAM. THEN I MADE A FEW MISTAKES, MY HEART WAS RIGHT IT SEEMED.

I WANTED TO BE SOMEBODY, NOT A SOUL JUST PASSING BY. I HAD A GRANDIOSE VISION AND WAS AIMING FOR THE SKY.

BUT GOD HAD OTHER PLANS FOR ME. HE PUT MY FEET BACK ON THE GROUND. HE SAID IF YOU WANT TO SERVE ME THEN TAKE A LOOK AROUND.

YOU SEE THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE IN THIS SINFUL WORLD YOU KNOW. AND IT'S UP TO YOU TO TELL THEM THAT I AM THE WAY TO GO.

SO YOU MADE A FEW MISTAKES AS OH SO MANY DO. BUT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD AND I CAN STILL USE YOU.

NOW HUMBLE YOURSELF AND TELL THEM OF THE MISTAKES THAT YOU HAVE MADE. THEN TELL THEM OF MY LOVE AND GRACE AND THE PRICE THAT JESUS PAID.

I WILL GIVE YOU PURPOSE, PROVISION AND A NAME. YOUR LIFE WILL BE FULFILLING IT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

AND BY THE WAY I HEARD YOU WHEN YOU CALLED OUT MY NAME. WHEN YOU WERE JUST A LITTLE CHILD WHEN YOU CALLED, I CAME.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN RIGHT HERE WITH YOU EVEN WHEN TIMES WERE HARD. I KNEW THAT YOU COULD MAKE IT. I KNEW IT FROM THE START.

SO KEEP ON CALLING MY NAME WHENEVER YOU NEED A HAND, AND MY ANGELS I WILL SEND TO YOU COUNTLESS AS THE SAND.

I NEVER WILL FORSAKE YOU. I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU COLD. EVEN WHEN YOU MAKE MISTAKES AND ARE GROWING VERY OLD.

NOW TAKE MY WORDS AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS OF THE MESSAGE THAT I GAVE. AND BE MY WITNESS TO THE WORLD I DID OVERCOME THE GRAVE.
